|Rivers Is Not A Christian State, Wike - Punch Editorial by Ctorch: 5:38pm On Dec 01|
It was earlier this year that Wike first declared Rivers a Christian state, a claim he repeated recently at a church event in Port Harcourt, the state capital. Combative as usual, he said, “I repeat the declaration with authority and I owe nobody an apology; Rivers is a Christian state”.

Punch and Lagos-Ibadan express agenda.
Stop trying to foist una agenda on Wike.
Wike said that Rivers is a Christian state and so be it.
Rivers state is not a Muslim state nor do the state practice any form of Islam...

who cares what Rivers State is whether christian state or cultist state... why not upgrade infrastructure and leave story
*Last time i checked Rivers State Seaports have being concessioned to Alhaji Atiku Abubarkar and Alhaji Tinubu's INTELS and every ship that berths in that region pays them
*Many of the most juicy OML in Rivers Christian State are controlled by Alhaji with connection in NNPC towers abuja
*Every Northern and Southern Islamic state gets fat allocation from crude oil from our christian brothers in Rivers while we leave them with oil spilleage and gas flaring
Udom and Akpabio are building their state and opening it up for investors through mega stadium, state owned deep sea port, state owned 5 star hotels, Lagos is building a whole manmade Island on PPP arrangement for investors and rich folks, they are building mega interchange and getting mass transport right... Yet what this fat dude is concerned about is what middleeastern God he serves in his state

Editorial moronisity. First Syria is a one party state which imposes secularism on everyone and still manipulates religious sectarianism for to perpetuate its hold on power. In fact, protest against the one party state led to the bloody suppression of protesters which resorted into the war. Any pretense of placing violence of political actors at the door steps religion is ingenious and plainly stewpid. In every conflict in the world there is always a material thing being fought for it could be power, oil or money rarely is religion at the heart of the conflict. The secularists they worship in Syria has almost destroyed their country with chemical weapons used Hezbollah to fight his enemies. A faithless human being can be very dangerous when his interest is threatened.
Whenever Christians like the sort you find in Punch who play around with religion, wants to criticise the political choices of his co religionist he must almost always bring Muslims into the mix to assuage their brethren pains. This only goes to show the lack of integrity of such entity and persons.

If that is the case, Zamfara and Sokoto should have not been criticized out of your cowardly ineptitude to copy them all these years.
The sweet thing about wike the cultist who bunchers Rivers behaviour which you quickly endorse goes to prove that you will cheer the devil as long as he antagonize Muslims, but guess what, your bloody cultist is only interested in eating undisturbed while pressing unah mumu botton

So you opened your gutter mouth to accuse Wike of being a cultist. Wondering the evidence you have on Wike or even others as cultist.
|Re: Rivers Is Not A Christian State, Wike - Punch Editorial by CrimeKsmart: 6:51pm On Dec 01|
Pls can we just forget this issue.
No Muslim is complaining about Rivers being a Christian state in as much as the government doesn't deprive the Muslims from practising their religion
|Re: Rivers Is Not A Christian State, Wike - Punch Editorial by NaMeAboki: 7:39pm On Dec 01|
OP was on point until he made the same mistake many others continue to make concerning adoption of Sharia in the 12 northern states.
Let us get this very clear; so far Wike is only governor to declare a particular religion (Christianity) for his state; I repeat, no other other governor has done what Wike did - including those northern governors who introduced sharia penal code in their states.
There is a big difference between adopting a religious law (alongside others) targeted only at it's adherents (Sharia for Muslims only) against adopting or declaring a particular faith (Christianity) as the blanket and only religion (at the exclusion of others) for a state - as Wike did.
Unfortunately, many Nigerians are being deliberately misled by those opposed to Sharia (CAN, the media etc) into believing otherwise - it is even more unfortunate that many seemingly intelligent folks have been gullible enough to have fallen for this false narrative; including the OP.

But Zamfara and Kano can be?
For those saying the Sharia governors did not declare their states Islam states, why are Christians not allowed to sell food openly during Ramadan in Kano?
Why seize cartons of alcoholic drinks from the sellers?
The truth is; we are far too divided along religious line...things can't be the same again!

Just hear your yourself with the guts to call a sitting Governor of a state a cultist.Who is even regulating this nairaland self, your type should be kicked out of here for using such words to describe a governor without an atom of proof.
Are you his fellow cult member to have alleged that he(Governor Wike is a cultist) ?

I wonder the day these middle east gods would fight their own frigging battle, instead of their dvmp followers jumping everywhere.
Pls ask yourself this simple question, Why does this news trigger something in you?
Are you that brainwashed that you think you are fighting for allah? Are you the online version of Boko haram perhaps?

Rivers state is undoubtedly a Christian state. Almajiris n yoro muslims kiss the truth. The state permits freedom of worship and association as enshrined in the constitution unlike many of your sharia states. Cry us a river all u want.

Elections losers and children of hate always have multiple ways of expressing their bitterness/sifia pains.
The above comments are just one of the ways!
It's been sifia pains for 5 years now, it's not easy for them.

You can relocate to sokoto and find an accommodation in the caliphate premises if you are not comfortable with the fact that rivers is a Christian state.
You enact sharia and impose it on non Muslims yet you feel wike is wrong to declare rivers a Christian state. Kiss the truth because rivers is a Christian state.
|Re: Rivers Is Not A Christian State, Wike - Punch Editorial by efeski(m): 6:36am On Dec 02|
Una go just siddon type better nonsense.
Is there a difference between six and half a dozen?
Cos your point of sharia and penal code not equating with a declaration of a Muslim state simply amounts to that
|Re: Rivers Is Not A Christian State, Wike - Punch Editorial by NaMeAboki: 7:23am On Dec 02|
Big lie, food vendors are free to sell their wares at anytime during Ramadan to anyone; whether Muslims or Christians; what you fail to realise is that there are many Muslims exempted from fasting during the said period, e.g. children below puberty, the sick, menstruating women and even travellers.
It would have been disingenuous therefore to ban the sale of food, in view of such ppl; besides, nothing stops a fasting person from buying his food for later consumption at the appropriate time - your allegation is completely false and a figment from your biased imagination.
On the contrary, the ban on sale and consumption of alcohol in the state was NOT enacted UNDER SHARIA law but under conventional law through the State House of Assembly.
This lie is being told by Christians in Nigeria opposed to Sharia and promoted through an obviously biased media; besides, the ban cannot in any way prevent Christians from practising their religion; just as it did not in America when that country also did same in its prohibition years.

Kindly carefully review my post again and if you still cannot see the difference; then I am completely sorry for you; pls accept my condolences.

NaMeAboki:Mr u lie. Sharia law in Muslim states target everybody within that state.
Wike is far better than all those Muslim sharia state people. If not why in this world would northern states who collect allocations from VAT from Alcohol be destroying business of people who sell alcohol and be arresting non Muslims in possession of alcohol, this una half truths no work.
If u want to practice sharia practice it all in, reject all VAT's from alcohol or anything related to it.
No northerner from a state that practices sharia has the moral right to criticize wike. Before u do go and remove the log in your own eyes first
