Former aviation minister, Femi Fani-Kayode has commended the governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike on his controversial statement that Rivers state is a Christian state and remains so.
The statement which generated a lot of controversy from various quarters due to its sensitive nature has been condemned by various Muslim groups.
However, the ex-minister has come to the defence of the Rivers State Governor.
Femi Fani-Kayode wrote:
I have not seen my friend Nyesom Wike, Gov. of Rivers state, for some time so I shall use this medium to commend his courage and faith by boldly declaring that Rivers state is a Christian state and shall always be one. The Lord honors those who honor Him. Well spoken my brother.
