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.
