Nyesom wike advise Christians on politics

Rivers State governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, has appealed to Christian leaders to participate in the political process to help in the development of the country.
He stated that Christian Leaders could no longer stay away from the political arena in view of present day realities.
Wike spoke, yesterday, when the Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Niger
Delta North, Rt Reverend Wisdom Budu Ihunwo, paid him a courtesy call at Government House, Port Harcourt.
The governor said: “Continue to pray for us, but encourage your members to participate actively in politics.
“There is no reason to stand aloof at this time. When religious people are involved in politics, there is always a difference. If they participate, there will be an improvement in the governance process”.
He acknowledged the role played by the church in his victory at the polls, saying that his administration would continue to partner with the church as it works towards rapid development of the state.
Wike commended the Anglican Diocese of the Niger Delta North for critical investments and projects that would help in stabilising the church.
Earlier, the Anglican Bishop of Niger Delta North, Rt Reverend Wisdom
Budu Ihunwo, said that the governor’s victory is a loud statement by Rivers people that they appreciate his performance.
Ihunwo said: “Your electoral victory is a lesson to all to keep faith in all legitimate pursuits”.
While commending the governor for his commitment to a better secondterm, the Anglican Bishop prayed God to give Wike the grace to end well.
