TVC N. The administration of Nyesom Wike, governor of Rivers state, has declared a three-day fasting to“seek God’s intervention” for peace and order ahead of the December 10 legislative rerun election.
Austin Tam-George, commissioner for information, disclosed this in a statement, saying the spiritual exercise will hold between Wednesday and Friday.
He said Wike had pleaded with residents and churches in the state to actively participate in the spiritual exercise.
“The fasting will involve churches and residents of the state; the essence is to seek God’s divine intervention in the election,” he said.
“We know that when we seek the face of God, He will cause our state to have a peaceful rerun election and no principality or power can stand Him.”
He enjoined the people to engage in acts capable of promoting peace during the election.
The Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) has expressed concerns over the high level of violence in the state.
