Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has called on Christians and Church leaders to continue in their prayers for the peace, development, and growth of the State.
Speaking during the Silver Jubilee Anniversary/Thanksgiving of the Diocese of Niger Delta North, Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion at the St. Paul’s Cathedral, Diobu, Port Harcourt, on Saturday, Governor Wike acknowledged that the successes of his administration is largely attributable to God and the prayers from Christians.
The governor, who was represented by the Secretary to the State Government, Dr. Tammy Danagogo, further urged Christians not to relent in their prayers, noting that more successes at the end of his administration is very crucial.
According to him;
“I call on the clergy and all Christians to continue to support our administration and to pray for us always. Do not rest on your oars. As Ecclesiastes 7:8 says, the end of a thing is better than the beginning thereof. As we move towards 2023, the end of this tenure, your prayers should intensify. Pray that we will end even better.”
The governor thanked the Bishopric for enhancing the educational development of the State through the establishment of the Diocesan Educational Centre to train and retrain clerics and others.
“Every opportunity or position given to you, can be a fruit to eat or seed to sow. Governor Wike has used the opportunity to rule the State as a seed. He has sown in the development of our State, the lives of the people and growth of Christendom in the state,” he said.
“I thank you for honouring him and admitting him into the Nehemiah Hall of Fame. It is the right thing to do. Even Jesus our Lord, showed us the importance of sowing or investing your seed properly in the Parable of the Talents,”
