Wike Pledges To Work With Catholic Church

Governor Nyesom  Ezenwo  Wike  has  pledged  to work  with   the Catholic  Church  to enhance  the development  of  the  state. This is even as Vice President Yemi  Osinbajo  stated that the Buhari  administration  remains  focused on the fight against  corruption  since the survival  of  the  nation  depends on it.

Speaking  during  the  Second  Plenary  of the Catholic  Bishop  Conference  of Nigeria in Port  Harcourt  yesterday,  Governor  Wike  said  that  his administration  has  started the revival  of  the  state, stressing  that  the  support  of  the  Church  is required  for greater  success to be  attained.

He noted that he would assist the Catholic Church in reviving her missionary schools and making them centres of excellence as started by former Governor Peter Odili. While urging  the  church  to always pray for his administration  to deliver  on its promises,  Governor  Wike  praised the Catholic  Church  for always providing a non partisan platform for all politicians to promote  their candidacy.

He advised  other churches  to emulate  the  Catholic  Church  by shunning  the  attitude  of  endorsing candidates. He said : “I like to use this opportunity  to  advise  other Church  leaders to emulate  the  Catholic  Church  by refusing to be drawn into the  practice  of  endorsing  candidates  during  elections”. The  governor  pledged to construct  the  road leading to the  Catholic  Pastoral Centre in Port Harcourt  alongside  the  internal  roads in the vicinity.
