Speaking during the 57th Independence Church Service at Saint Mark’s Anglican Church in Port Harcourt Sunday, Wike said Rivers State was not part of any agitation for secession.

He said: “As long as we continue to have bad governance, people will continue to agitate across the country. We give God the glory that we are still one, despite the agitations and challenges.

“We are not part of those who want to secede. Rivers State will never be part of that.”

Wike, however, pointed out that the country cannot continue with the current level of impunity and injustice, saying it was time for the right thing to be done.

He said: “People must speak out. Under this dispensation, votes no longer count. ”

In his sermon, Anglican Bishop of Evo Diocese, Rt. Rev. Innocent Ordu, said Nigeria has developed despite her many challen-ges and urged Nigerians to respect laws.
