Spotlight On Wike’s Endless Search For Prayers (Photos)
THERE is no doubt that the Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, has portrayed himself in recent times as a governor that believes so much in prayers as there is hardly any Sunday that the Ikwerre-born politician is not seen among congregations of different Christian denominations.
Ordinarily, clerics would not have noticed Wike as a man that has a penchant for going to church to pray, but because he occupies a position of authority, he is always the cynosure of all eyes any time he is in church.
Before the heat of the general election in March and April 2015, the governor’s level of appearances in churches was not as high as it is now.
Within the past one month, he has been to many churches seeking and getting prayers for himself and the success of his administration.
Just last week, Wike was at the Royal House of Grace International Church where another guest of the church and a renowned cleric, Dr. Uma Ukpai, prayed for him and described him as an asset to the state.
The General Overseer of the Royal House of Grace, Apostle Zilly Aggrey, also prayed for the governor.
A week before his visit to Apostle Aggrey’s church, Wike had been to The Lord’s Chosen Church, Pastor Lazarus Mouka where he also got a large dose of prayers from the general overseer of the church. It was at the Lord’s Chosen Church that he ordered that a major road leading to the church be reconstructed based on his pledge during his previous visit before the general election.
The ‘praying governor’ has also received clerics from the Methodist Church and Archibishop Ignatius Kattey of the Anglican Church at the Government House in Port Harcourt and none of them left without praying for him and the success of his administration.
There is no doubt that this coming Sunday, Wike is likely to be found on his knees in a church praying or being prayed for.
With such an outpouring of prayers for Wike, his supporters hope that the ongoing election petition tribunal will rule in his favour.
