Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike is urging the church to avoid leaders who use their congregation for politics during elections.
The governor observed that some politicians only remember the church during elections when they visit worship centres to profess their Christian faith.
Wike gave the advice at the inauguration of Archdeacon Crowther Memorial Girls School Road and Adjoining Roads in Elelenwo Town of Obio/Akpor Local Government Area.
The governor says he had remained committed to his pledge of standing with the church at all times, defending, and supporting the growth and expansion of its missionary activities.
He explains that his position was borne out of his conviction that the church’s consistent and fervent prayers to God had helped his administration to succeed.
