Rivers State Governor and Chairman of the Nigerian Governors Forum, Rotimi Amaechi, has attributed the increasing level of insecurity in Nigeria to the Federal Government.
The Governor also said that God, not man, installed him as the state governor because he fasted and prayed for 10 months before he became the governor.
“As a government led by me, a government installed by Christ; if anybody tells you he installed me, tell him it is a
lie. Tell him that I said I prayed for 10 months and I fasted from 6am to 6pm, calling on Christ to come down and Christ came down mightily and installed me as governor.”
“That is why you can see that in the face of human effontery, I have been able to stand face to face with them and I say I have Christ in me.”
Amaechi, who spoke at Saint Vincent De Paul Catholic Church in Port Harcourt on Christmas Day, said the insecurity in the state is growing because the police had failed to do their job in an unbiased manner.
He urged Nigerians to disregard anyone who claimed to be responsible for his emergence as governor: “You must rise in that same spirit of having Christ in you and confront those who are confronting you. You must stand up for Christ because the Bible says ‘faith without work is dead’.”
“We must not die. We must live and the way to live is to celebrate Christ and the way to celebrate Christ is to confront Satan and Satan is in different forms and shapes. If the police shoot at you, they are satanic. If government denies you your right to live, that government is satanic.”
Amaechi called on the people to be steadfast.
