During the 2023 presidential election, Governor Wike revealed that God saved his wife from cancer. Upon receiving the diagnosis, he informed leaders in his campaign team, including the G-5 Governors, about the challenge and contemplated stepping down from the race.

Wike said his wife encouraged him to continue with his campaign despite the diagnosis.

He disclosed this during a special Thanksgiving service organized by his family at the St. Peters Deanery, Rumuepirikom, Obio-Akpor area of the state, on Sunday.

Wike also disclosed that a mysterious fire gutted his wife’s room and destroyed her things while he was on a campaign trip.

According to Wike: “Being a strong woman, my wife never showed it. But today my wife is hale and hearty. The cancer incident was the one I knew that God had done all for me”.

On the plane crash, Wike said while they were travelling to Abuja after the presidential primary, one of the engines of the aircraft exploded 15 minutes after takeoff.

“15 minutes after takeoff at the air force base, we heard an explosion. They locked up the cockpit. One engine is gone and the pilot said it was safer to turn back to Port Harcourt. Before we landed, there were many ambulances and fire service trucks lined up. We landed safely by the Grace of God. I didn’t tell anybody,” he said.

Wike said he kept most of the incidents secret to avoid frightening his supporters, who could begin to behave anyhow.
