BY ANAYO ONUKWUGHA, PORT HARCOURT –
Rivers State governor, Chief Ezebunwo Nyesom Wike has declared that the newly constructed Government House Chapel of Everlasting Grace, was built by his administration strictly for the worship of God.
He said the Chapel was constructed to exalt the name of God, pointing out that that nobody is allowed to use the Chapel premises as a place for political horse-trading and seeking political patronage.
Wike spoke yesterday during an inaugural service held at the Chapel, which was attended by officials of the state government and leaders of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Port Harcourt.
The governor said, “This is a place of worship for top government officials, leaders of the State, those who work in Government House and invited guests.
“This place will operate like every normal church with the chaplains controlling proceedings. I urge the chaplains to preach the word of God and not resort to praise-singing.”
He stated that the operation of the Chapel should not be regulated by his attendance, noting that whether or not he is around, the Chapel must function to the Glory of God.
In his sermon, the Special Adviser to the Governor on Religious Affairs, Bishop Winston Iwo, said it is good to worship God in an assembly because it promotes the growth of Christianity.
Iwo charged Christians in Government to take advantage of the Chapel to worship God and work for the growth of the state.
