Prince Charles’ visit: Wike faults FG over exclusion of N’Delta

Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has accused the Federal Government of shielding Prince Charles of Wales, United Kingdom, from visiting the ‘neglected Niger Delta region’ that produced the nation’s wealth during the Prince’s visit to the country. This was as he questioned the parameters used in restricting Prince Charles to Abuja and Lagos.

The governor, who spoke yesterday while receiving the international preacher, Evangelist Daniel Kolenda at the Government House, Port Harcourt, said that the actions of the Federal Government signaled the negativity that characterised governance under the present administration. He said: “The Prince of Wales visited the country and the Federal Government took him to Abuja and Lagos.

They did not want him to visit Niger Delta region to see the suffering of the people of the region. “It is our money and resources that they used to develop Lagos and Abuja. Yet they did not want the Prince of Wales to see how they have neglected the area that produces the wealth of the nation. “Look at the sitting arrangement of their photograph with the Prince of Wales and where they placed the producers of national wealth?” While describing the action of the Federal Government as very painful, Wike commended the leaders of the Christ for All Nations (CFAN) for visiting Rivers State despite the alleged plots by the Federal Government to de-market the oil producing states.

Wike, who said that God had ordained the crusade to hold in Port Harcourt, the capital of the state, because he is determined to bless the people, however, assured the cleric that people of the state would participate actively in the crusade. He hinted that the State Executive Council would take the lead, while his administration would continue to partner the church to ensure peaceful co-existence and the general growth of the state.

“This administration derives its sustenance from God. We are grateful that men of God have continued to pray for us. If not for their prayer, this administration would have been shaken, but because of God’s blessing we have continued to march forward,” the governor said. In his remarks, Kolenda of the Christ for All Nations declared that God will exalt Port Harcourt this week, noting that God’s special power will sweep through the city to bless the people and empower them with the grace of recovery.
