We’ve con­cluded fast­ing and prayer on Wike - Rivers APC

Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - From Vic­tor Edozie, Port Har­court.

Rivers State chap­ter of the All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC), says it has con­cluded its seven days fast­ing and prayer where it prayed for peace, good gov­er­nance and the well­be­ing of Rivers State and her people.

The party at the com­mence­ment of the prayers say it is so that the PDP would elect Nye­som Wike as its gu­ber­na­to­rial can­di­date.

The party at a prayer ses­sion held at its state sec­re­tariat in Port Har­court also prayed for wis­dom, pro­tec­tion and good health for Gover­nor Chibuike Amaechi and his fam­ily , the mem­bers of the State Ex­ec­u­tive Coun­cil as well as the speaker of the As­sem­bly Otelemaba Amachree and mem­bers of Rivers State House of As­sem­bly.

Evan­ge­list Dr Davies Ibi­amu Ikanya, the in­terim chair­man of APC in Rivers State, who de­clared the fast­ing ses­sion closed, urged party mem­bers to em­brace God, say­ing that with­out Him, all the party’s ef­forts to pro­vide good gov­er­nance for Rivers State and the en­tire na­tion would be in vain.

“With the fast­ing we have shown to the en­tire world that all our ac­tiv­i­ties are cen­tred on God. In other words, those fight­ing against Gover­nor Amaechi and the APC lead­er­ship in Rivers State are in­di­rectly fight­ing God and they will never suc­ceed as our own God is a great war­rior and con­sum­ing fire ever ready to pro­tect his chil­dren and shame our en­e­mies,” he said.

Evan­ge­list Ikanya em­pha­sized the readi­ness of his party to or­gan­ise a suc­cess­ful Ward Congress of the party.

He urged all party faith­ful to shift all forces to their lo­cal­i­ties and en­sure that cred­i­ble per­sons are elected at the ward level say­ing that is the en­gine room of the party’s cam­paign for the 2015 gen­eral elec­tions.
