Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has advised Christians ahead of next Saturday’s presidential election.
Wike called on Christians to troop out and vote because their votes will make the difference.
The Governor spoke during a special combined Sunday service, at the Deeper Life Camp Ground, Rumuodara, Port Harcourt on Sunday.
Wike said Nigerian Christians can no longer stand aloof while the country slides into destruction.
Wike said, “You must vote during the forthcoming elections; If you don’t vote and a bad leader emerges, you are part of those who brought that bad leadership. Your vote can make the difference. So, go ahead and vote, to effect a positive change.”
He further called on the church not to allow the children of God to be surrounded “by those who should not be in charge of leadership of the country.”
Wike said all efforts of Christians to ensure the country makes progress would be crowned when they vote for their preferred choice.
Wike added, “Pray for this state; pray against those plotting electoral violence. Pray for the state to have peaceful and credible polls. Those plotting evil shall be disappointed.
“None of my supporters should engage in political violence on my behalf. Nobody should use violence to support me.”
The governor said security agencies plotting bloodshed in the state would be consumed by their plot, while Rivers would emerge victorious.
