Rivers Deputy Speaker Ehie Ogerenye Edison has claimed that a woman who had difficulty giving birth immediately delivered after shouting the Rivers state Governor, Nyesom Wike's name three times.

According to report, the lady was prepared for a cesarean section but at the mention of 'the God of Nyesom Wike, let me deliver safely', the woman miraculously had her baby.

The deputy speaker made this known on Wednesday, January 11, when Wike visited his constituency Ahoada.

“As at yesterday night, there was a lady on (in) labour. The lady tried, (but) she couldn’t put to bed. They had already prepared the theatre for her to be operated on this morning,” Mr Edison said.

Edison disclosed that the pregnant woman heard some nurses discussing that the governor would be visiting Ahoada.

He noted that the lady delivered a baby boy after praying in the name of Mr Wike.

“At the hearing of your name, the woman shouted: ‘the God of Nyesom Wike, let me deliver safely’. The God of Nyesom Wike, let me deliver safely’"

“Your excellency, three times the woman mentioned your name and she delivered a bouncing baby boy. Praise ye the Lord! Your excellency, that was your name. They came this morning and said they want to name the boy in your name. I said no, don’t do that until I hear a confirmation from your excellency.”
