Rivers state is running Jesus economy – Wike



Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has said that his administration will not relent in its support for the Church to promote and expand the gospel of Jesus Christ.

This is also he said the state is running a ‘Jesus economy’ which is the reason it is one of the wealthiest in the South East.

The governor stated this at the special fundraising service for the purchase of landed property by the Church of Christ in Nations, Port Harcourt on Sunday.

A statement by his Special Assistant on Media, Kelvin Ebiri, said Wike, who donated Thirty Million Naira (N30M) to support the Church of Christ in Nations, assured that whenever his administration is called upon to contribute to the propagation and evangelism of the gospel, it will not relent to support the Church.

He said; “Even in governance, we won’t have been able to achieve anything without God. Look at the economy of the country today, but everyday, we are either commissioning or flagging off projects. People ask how do you do this?

His Excellency will always say, this State is a Christian State, and this State is running a Jesus economy. In the Jesus economy, you give a little to the work of God and God multiples that little you have given in a million fold. It is with that we are able to execute our projects.”

Wike added that his support for the Church is an altruistic service, rendered in appreciation of God’s benevolence towards his administration and the good people of Rivers State.
