youths, were now going into cultism,

Elder Austin Nwako, has stated that cultism in Rivers State is getting out of control.

Nwako is the Field Representative of the Full Gospel Business Men’s Fellowship International (FGBMFI),

 He expressed displeasure that more persons, especially the youths, were now going into cultism, in spite of the amnesty offer to repentant militants, cultists, kidnappers and other criminals by the Nyesom Wike’s administration.

Nwako stated these in an interactive session with reporters in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, after a special programme of FGBMFI.

He said: “We are a religious organisation and on our own side, we will continue to pray for those involved in cultism in the state (Rivers) to repent. We call on the government of Rivers State to take particular step at ensuring that this situation is put under control. It is getting out of control. It is the work of the government to put a stop to all these cultism and cult-related activities in the state.

“Our own as a religious organisation is to pray that God should change the heart of these men (cultists).

“For the people who are involved in cultism, what we are saying is that there is no advantage. There is nothing that cultism gives you. We are calling them to come out of cultism. Let them leave cultism and live a meaningful life. All we want for them is to make heaven on the last day. You cannot be a cultist and make heaven.”

The field representative also stated that the gathering was for the people in attendance to know Christ.

He said: “The programme is for those who have not given their lives to Christ to do so, while those who have already given their lives to renew their relationship with Christ.

“The message I want them to know is that we have started this campaign. This city (Port Harcourt) is going agog by November this year, in what we call the Southsouth Convention (of FGBMFI).”

Nwako also stated that the sensitisation was equally aimed at making people in the Southsouth zone of Nigeria to be prepared for the November convention, stressing that members of the planning committee wanted Port Harcourt and its inhabitants to get ready for Jesus Christ.
