The Rivers Government has declared a three-day fasting to seek God’s intervention for peace and order in the state, ahead of the Dec. 10 rerun elections

Austin Tam-George, the state Commission for Information, stated this in a statement he issued on Monday in Port Harcourt.

According to the commissioner, the fasting will span between Wednesday, December 7 and Friday December 9.

He said that Gov. Nyesom Wike 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. 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 said.

He enjoined Rivers people to engage in acts capable of promoting peace during the election.

The Independent Electoral Commission (INEC) fixed December 10 for rerun elections into national and state assembly positions in the state.

    Rivers state! Been effectively moving from an illiterate governor to another illoterate governor. Despite all the oil proceeds, the state is a sham.. Governors more interested in being hench men, tough talkers and warlords… Can the educated youths in that state please learn

    Let’s keep on praying. There’s power in the name of Jesus!
    The Deliverance of the Jews from Captivity in Babylon didn’t happen until Daniel fell on his face in Daniel 9 believing God for deliverance. If the Governor is calling on concerned citizens in the state to pray, I support Him!
