The Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has urged the Church in Nigeria to be vigilant and not allow itself to be dragged into the political scene by desperate politicians who desire power at all cost in the 2023 general elections.
The governor stated this on Sunday at the St. Paul’s Cathedral, Diobu-Port Harcourt during the Rivers Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Dedication Service for 2023 Election Campaigns.
Wike, told the Church in Nigeria to ‘shine its eyes’, a Nigerian lingo to be alert to current happenings, and not be dragged unnecessarily into political intrigues.
