Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers state, who was spotted kneeling to a popular prophet, has declared that those planning to shorten his tenure in office will be disgraced by God. The former education minister, who was addressing members of Lord’s Chosen Renewal Charismatic Ministry in Port Harcourt on Sunday, insisted that God, as well as the prayers of the men of God, ensured that he won the last gubernatorial election in the state.
“The way the God of the Lord’s Chosen did it on April 11, that is how he will do it again,” he was quoted to have said during the service.
According to The Nation, the governor told the congregation that it was at the same denomination in the state that he vowed that if the rumour that he was a member of a cult, he should not win the governorship election.
Wike is now boastful that he won the governorship election because the rumour spread by the opposition was false, and that his administration, by virtue of strategic planning, has confounded those who claimed that road construction cannot take place at the height of the rainy season.
The governor recently stated his disinterest in whether or not his predecessor, Rotimi Amaechi, becomes a minister of the federal republic under president Muhammadu Buhari.
