Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State says Christians all over Nigeria owes God a sacred duty to vote out bad leaders in the coming elections in the country.

He has therefore charged Christians  to troop out and vote during the elections, because their votes will make the difference.

The governor who was speaking during a special combined church service at the Deeper Life Camp Ground, Rumudara, Port Harcourt, the state capital, said Nigerian Christians can no longer stand aloof while the country slides into destruction.

 He said that Christians should not believe  the false propaganda  that they cannot influence the outcome of political contests in the country. ‘’You must vote during  the forthcoming elections.  If you don’t vote and a bad leader emerges, you  are part of those that  brought that bad leadership.

‘’Your vote can make the difference.  So go ahead and vote to effect a positive change’’, he said and further charged the church not to allow the children of God to be surrounded by those not supposed  to be in charge of leadership  of the country.

Governor Wike said that all Christians have witnessed first-hand  the failures of the last four years of the Federal Government which have destroyed the economy, engendered unemployment, insecurity  and dictatorial  tendencies.  He said this is the opportunity to chart a new direction.

Continuing, he said that all efforts of Christians to ensure that  the country makes progress would be crowned  when they vote for their preferred choice and then appealed to Christians to continue  to pray against those plotting electoral violence and bloodshed  in Rivers State.

He said, ‘’please pray for this state. Pray against those plotting electoral violence in this state. Pray for the state to have peaceful and credible polls.  Those plotting shall be disappointed. None of my supporters should engage in  political  violence  on my behalf.  Nobody should use violence to support me.’’

According to the governor, the security agencies plotting bloodshed  in Rivers State  will be consumed by their plot and Rivers State will emerge victorious, and accordingly urged the church to pray for the Judiciary.

He said  Christians should pray that God enables Judges to act right despite the intimidation and false propaganda  by the failed All Progressives Congress (APC) Federal Government.

The Deeper Life Camp Ground Youth Choir ministered to the congregation in a special number where they declared that they are no longer  slaves to  sin and fear, but children of God.

Head of the church in the state, Pastor Chike Onwuasunya, in his remarks said truly Governor Wike is Mr Project as his projects are visible, pointing out that since 2015, Deeper Life Church in the state has been praying for the success of Governor Wike.  He said the church will always remain committed to praying for the state.

While declaring that all those making prophecies and preaching violence against the state will witness the peaceful elections and that all evil plans will fail, he urged Deeper Life  members  to vote to determine  the positive  direction  of the country.

Prayers were said for the state government, Governor Wike, his family and the peaceful conduct of credible elections.  The adult choir also ministered at the Church Service declaring freedom for the children of God.
