Wike expresses gratitude to God for a successful second year anniversary


Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has declared  that he will continue  to  remain grateful  to God for the survival of his administration, saying that  God delivered the administration  from the evil machinations  of the APC.



He stated that after his electoral  victory, the APC  did everything  to stop his inauguration  as they shopped for court injunctions across the country.

He spoke on Sunday during the Dedication and  Thanksgiving Service to mark the second  year anniversary of his administration at the Greater Evangelism World Crusade Temple, Port Harcourt.

Governor Wike said: "Everything was done to make sure that I was not sworn in. They went to Anambra court, they went Imo court, they went to Kano court and they went to Abuja court just to make sure that I was not sworn in.

"Just to get an order to stop me from being inaugurated as the governor of the state and God said no, I will be governor ".

The governor  said that his administration is connected  to God, noting that nothing can be too much  for his government  to do for the Church.

He said despite the statement  made by the immediate past Governor Rotimi Amaechi  on May 27, 2015 that he will not get funds to pay salaries or do projects, his administration  has been a success, executing projects across the state and paying salaries regularly.

He said: "Man said we will not have money to pay salaries, but God said we will  have money to pay salaries.  Man said we will not have money to do projects, but today, God gave us the money to do projects ".

While confirming that power belongs to God, Governor Wike said efforts by the Federal Government to truncate his leadership through the rigging of the rerun elections of March 19 and December 10, 2016 . He said that the APC-Led Federal Government  planned to rig the rerun  elections in order to hijack the State House of Assembly and impeach him, but their plans failed as Rivers people voted the PDP.

He said: "They wanted to use the rerun elections to get enough state lawmakers to impeach me. But by God's grace, we won. We don't have any power compared to the Federal Government.  But God's power is greater and that is why we have always  won".

Speaking  further, Governor Wike announced the approval of a certificate of occupancy  for the Greater Evangelism World Crusade headquarters.

In his sermon, International Director, Greater Evangelism World Crusade, Pastor Isaac Olori said that God has sustained  the administration of Governor  Wike  because  God ordained him in the first place.

He noted that Governor Wike  is succeeding during this era of recession because  his administration  is  anchored  on God.
