Thousands of Christian Women on Friday marched through the streets of Port Harcourt to celebrate the reelection of Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, which they described as an “act of God”.
The women, under the aegis of “Rivers Women Prayer Network “, converged on Aggrey Road in Port Harcourt Township where they offered praises to God for delivering the State from what they described as ‘evil machinations of anti-Rivers politicians.’
Right on the streets, the Rivers Christian Women knelt down to offer thanks to God for the victory of Governor Wike after weeks of violent political attacks on the state.
The street celebrations by the Rivers Christian Women were characterized by rendition of different Christian Praise Songs.
The women marched from Aggrey Road through to Government House, Port Harcourt before they ended at the Rivers State Ecumenical Centre, where they prayed for the protection of Governor Wike.
They also prayed for the peace and development of the state.
Leader of the Rivers Women Prayer Network, Mrs Help-Mate Ene Secondus said Rivers Women asked God for the re-election of Governor Wike and he answered their prayers.
She said: “We asked God for the re-election of Governor Wike and God gave us victory. We vowed during our prayer sessions that once God answers our prayers, we shall hit the roads of Port Harcourt to praise God.
“This is a victory made by God for Rivers State. Rivers State is not owned by Wike or Amaechi. It is owned by God. In the year of jubilee, Rivers women fasted for 50 days and handed over the state to God. The enemy has no choice but to quit Rivers State. God has given us victory through the successful emergence of Governor Wike”.
She said that Governor Wike has operated as a Christian leader by declaring the state as a Christian State.
“This is a 100 percent Christian State and it is also a 100 percent PDP State. That is why Christian Women have gathered to celebrate the victory given to us by God.
“This victory will be made permanent by God and nobody can change it. Because this victory is not from any man, let all Rivers people join Governor Wike to develop Rivers State “, she said.
She prayed God to comfort the families of those killed by soldiers during the elections.
General Manager of Rivers State Television, Dafini Gogo said Rivers women are rejoicing because God intervened at a time the enemy wanted to destroy the state.
She said everybody in Rivers State prayed for the victory of Governor Wike, including unborn children in the wombs of pregnant women.
She noted that injustice wanted to consume the state, but God gave the people victory.
