Rivers State Governor,  Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, has declared that God came down and personally  intervened in the electoral turbulence of the state to give the state a desired victory.
Speaking during a solidarity and Thanksgiving Service by the Anglican Bishops of the Province of Niger Delta  at the Government House,  Port Harcourt , Governor Wike said that he saw the mighty working hand of God during the elections.
“We give God the Glory  for what has happened.  During the period of turbulence,  the Church  prayed and God heard the prayers.
“God came down and intervened on our behalf.  Our Thanksgiving to God will never be enough. But for the intervention of God, there is nothing anyone would have done.
“All the conspiracies and gang-ups were heavy, but God showed his presence. When you have  challenges,  then you know there is God”.
Governor Wike urged the clergy to pray for God to give him the wisdom  to appoint officials that will be committed to the development  of  Rivers State during his second term.
He said: “I need your prayers for  God to bring to me the right people who will work with me. People who will work with me for the good of our State .
“People do all manner of things these days to manipulate the system. We need God’s  guidance for people who will be sincere to work for  the state”.
Governor Wike said he is not carried away by congratulations and praises as he remains focused and will never let down his guard.
“I will not let my guard down.  I don’t trust anybody totally.  This is because circumstances can change anyone. My firm belief is in God, who will never change “, he said.
He assured the Christian community that he will never disappoint them.
Archbishop of the Anglican Province of the Niger Delta,  Most Rev Tunde Adeleye said that they were in the Government House Port Harcourt to thank God for ensuring  the victory  of Governor Wike in line with the prayers of the Bishops and members of the Province.
He said that God intervened  in the face of the several plots against Governor Wike because the governor works for the growth of Christianity.
“We prayed intensely because God revealed to us the battle ahead  . You fought,  but the Lord was on your side and you were on the side of God and the battle was won”, he said.
The Cleric said that the Church was concerned because Governor Wike has always identified with it,  by professing Christianity at every  point .
Archbishop Adeleye urged Governor Wike to remain vigilant  as he receives goodwill messages.  He prayed God  to give the Governor the spirit to know the right direction to  lead the state.
