“We are not hypocrites. Some of us are from very good Christian backgrounds. We don’t need to bring television to people and start rolling on the ground for people to know that we are good Christians. All of you know that my father is a pastor. I am sitting here today saying that I am a child of God”.

“Mr. Vicar, let me say this and I want everybody to hear me say it. I attended the University of Port Harcourt, where I read Political Science. I went to the University of Science and Technology, where I read Law and later, the Nigerian Law School. From the University of Port Harcourt to the University of Science and Technology, I never belonged to any secret cult in the universities”.

“I want to challenge anybody who will even say that I was once invited, but I refused. I have never been invited and this is because they knew I would not come.

“I want you to pray that any person that is a member of a secret cult and has not come to the church to confess and renounce secret

cult, should not be governor of this state.’’ He stated.

He added: ‘’As I speak here, if I am a member of a secret society and now I am saying that I am no longer in a secret cult, and then pray also that I should not become the governor of this state.”

Following allegations and counter allegations between himself and his predecessor, Rotimi Amaechi, Rivers state governor, yesterday also denied that he is a member of any secret cult. Speaking at the commissioning of the state government house chapel, Wike said while he was an undergraduate at the Rivers state University of Science and Technology, he never joined any secret cult.

“As a University student, I never entered into any cult. Never!”he said.
