Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has declared that unless God intervenes in the situation of Nigeria, the country will slide further into developmental stagnation.
The governor stated that Nigeria requires special prayers to ensure that it remains stable despite the refusal of some top government officials to respect the rule of law.
Speaking during a courtesy visit by the Full Gospel Businessmen Fellowship at the Government House Port Harcourt on Friday, Governor Wike said leaders should fear God and respect the rule of law in the interest of the country.
Governor Wike noted that the withdrawal of the Security details of the Anambra State Governor indicates a fundamental problem of lawlessness under the present dispensation.
He said: “If we don’t seek the face of God, there will be no hope. Leaders should fear God and respect the rule of law.
“If God does not intervene in Nigeria, the future is not bright. Nigeria requires prayers. What happened in Anambra State is a coup against a constitutionall
The governor assured that his administration will continue to work with the Church in the state because the Church is the pillar of his state.
He commended the Full Gospel Businessmen Fellow for promoting Christian unity, noting that with unity the society will experience faster progress.
Earlier, the National President and International Director of Full Gospel Businessmen (Nigeria), Architect Ifeanyi Odedo declared that the prayer of the fellowship is that Rivers State under the leadership of Governor Wike will excel beyond expectations.
He thanked God for raising a man like Governor Wike who is addressing the developmental challenges of the state and re-positioning the state.
“There is a great rejoicing in the land. The enemy might not be happy, but the truth is that you are doing a great work and we appreciate you.
“We want to identify with the laudable efforts Your Excellency has undertaken in this state. Thank God who has been faithful to this state for raising a man like you who has become a transformer”.
The Full Gospel Businessmen Fellowship are in Rivers State for the Regional Convention for the South-South.
