The Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Ezenwo Wike has asked those he offended during the 2019 governorship election to forgive him, adding that his victory was for the people of the state.
Governor Wike Said this while speaking during a family thanksgiving at the Salvation Ministry Headquarters in Port Harcourt on Palm Sunday, April 14, 2019.
According to him, despite the long drawn battle against him during the 2019 General elections, he has forgiven all those who offended him, and wants all those he wronged to forgive him as well. He said:
“Nobody has won and nobody has lost the elections. But Rivers State has won.
“I forgive anyone that has wronged me and I also ask for forgiveness from those that I have wronged.“
The Governor said that he was in Church to give thanks to God for his faithfulness in the face of fierce political battles during the 2019 General Elections. He said:
“We have come here to give God thanks because he is so faithful to us. We have come to thank God for the fight he fought on our behalf.
“It is only God who can fight for us. We have no power of our own to fight.”
He thanked the Presiding Pastor of Salvation Ministry, Pastor David Ibiyeomie for his spiritual support during the long drawn political battle.
