In a bid of seeking God’s intervention the Rivers State Government has declared a three-day fast ahead of December 10 rerun elections.
The state Commissioner for Information, Austin Tam-George, made this known in a statement in Port Harcourt on Monday.
According to the commissioner, the fasting will span between December 7 and 9.
Tam-George said that Governor Nyesom Wike pleaded with residents and churches in the state to actively participate in the spiritual exercise.
Tam-George said: “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.”
Tam-George enjoined Rivers State people to engage in acts capable of promoting peace during the election.
The Independent Electoral Commission fixed December 10 for rerun elections into national and state assembly positions in the state.
