Wike Urges Church Leaders To Encourage Members To Participate In Politics

Nyesom Wike, the Rivers State Governor, has urged Christian leaders in Nigeria to encourage their members to contest political positions so as to produce suitable leaders.

According to reports, Wike made the call on Wednesday, and admonished the church to encourage its members to be part of the governance process, even as the 2023 general elections approaches.

This was reportedly disclosed in a statement issued by the media aide to the governor, Kelvin Ebiri.

Wike stated that, “You must be part of choosing leadership. Don’t say you have no role, you have a role. When you don’t participate, bad leaders will emerge and when bad leadership emerges, you are part of it.”

He made it known that, “You must encourage your people to be part of leadership. I didn’t go to any school to study leadership.”

He added that, “So, nobody should say that as a Christian you cannot be a governor, no. The head of SUBEB in my state is a priest and you can see the leadership he has given to that agency today.”

He noted that, “You will feel proud about it. That used to be the most corrupt agency, but today it is headed by a priest and you can see the difference.”
