In appreciation to God for defeating the activities of the enemies of Rivers State, Anglican Bishops of the Niger Delta Province trooped to the Chapel of Everlasting Grace at the Government House Port Harcourt where they offered praises and thanks to God for the electoral victory of Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike.
They declared that they chose to return to the Chapel of Everlasting Grace, because they vowed to offer their gratitude at the same location if Governor Wike wins the election.
Governor Nyesom Ezenwo Wike read the only script from Exodus 15: 1-11 which captured the mood of the celebration and God’s awesome power to deliver his people.
The State Deputy Governor, Dr Ipalibo Harry Banigo led the congregation in the rendition of Psalm 105, which also outlined the strength of the Almighty in the face of the actions of the enemies.
In a sermon, Archbishop of the Anglican Province of Niger Delta, Most Rev Tunde Adeleye said that with the victory of Governor Wike, the will of God has been done for Rivers State. He said despite the tensions and fears that greeted the lengthy process, God proved himself.
He commended Governor Wike for rising above the evil machinations of the wicked to declare that he has forgiven everyone by offering the hand of reconciliation.
The Cleric said that Rivers State was a test case for the evil plot to overrun the Christian faithful.
“This state was the eye of the nation. If the enemy had penetrated Rivers State, the entire nation would have fallen. God put his hand on his Rivers State to defend his people”, he said.
The Anglican Bishops of the Province of Niger Delta prayed for Governor Wike and the success of his administration. The Bishops also led the congregation for a Special Thanksgiving Procession to honour God for his mercies.
