Rivers State governor, Chief Nyesom Ezenwo Wike, has attributed the success recorded so far by his administration to the prayers of Christian clergy and faithful.
Wike disclosed this yesterday while speaking at the first year anniversary celebration of the Chapel of Everlasting Grace, Government House, Port Harcourt.
The only Bible Reading of the thanksgiving service was taken by the wife of the Rivers State governor, Justice Eberechi Suzzette Nyesom-Wike from Psalm 95: 1-7.
The governor was accompanied by the national chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Prince Uche Secondus and officials of the state government. He thanked the clergy and Christian faithful for their prayers which have sustained the administration and urged them to intensify their prayers as the state enters a more trying period in 2019.
Wike stated that the Chapel of Everlasting Grace was constructed to give glory to God at all times.
In his sermon at the event, an Anglican cleric, Venerable John Adubasim, urged Christians to always give their best to the service of God and humanity.
Adubasim further urged the people to remain steadfast in 2019 and ensure that that their will prevails, whether or not they get monetary benefits.
The cleric stated that all Christians must ensure that the state is not mortgaged by forces of darkness in 2019.
Earlier in his opening remarks, chaplain of the Chapel of Everlasting Grace, Government House, Port Harcourt, Venerable Sunday Opara thanked God for using Wike to erect a Church to honour the name of the Most High.
