The people of Rivers state have been urged to seek God's intervention in the forthcoming rerun elections. Austin Tam-George, the state Commission for Information, said this in a statement he issued on Monday, December 5.
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.''
The Independent Electoral Commission fixed December 10 for rerun elections into National and State Assembly positions in the state.
