Wike Donates N30million To Church, Says Rivers Running ‘Jesus Economy’


River State Governor, Nyesom Wike has donated N30 million to the church while assuring that his administration will not fail to support the ministry as it affected the spiritual and physical aspects of people.

Wike gave the donation the special fundraising service for the purchase of landed property by the Church of Christ in Nations, Port Harcourt on Sunday.

The governor, who was represented by the Chief of Staff, Government House, Chief Emeka Woke, said that the state runs what he described as ‘Jesus economy’.

In a statement by Kelvin Ebiri, his Special Assistant on Media, Governor Wike implored Christians to continue to pray for the success of his administration and the State, noting that the prayers have been a major source of strength of his administration since its inception in 2015.

The statement partly reads, “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.”
