The governor, who boasted that the state’s indigenes are Christians explained that the fund will be managed by church leaders.

His word, “We have resolved to set up a trust fund for Christians in the state. This fund will cater mainly for clerics, especially those who are distressed, but lack resources to cater for their needs.

“Since Rivers is purely a Christian state, we must show we are, truly, a Christian state. The Ecumenical Centre we are building will be commissioned in May. The Government House chapel has also been completed.”
