General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch A. Adeboye, lauded Governor Ayo Fayose of Ekiti State for his courage and boldness in defence of the people of the state.
Adeboye made this known when he was received by Governor Fayose and the Ewi of Ado, Oba Rufus Adejugbe at the monarch’s palace on Friday.
the visit was part of the cleric’s tour of the country for the church’s “Let’s-go-a-fishing” Evangelism programme.
“We thank God for your courage, for your boldness, we thank God for your being willing to take risks so that your people can be protected.
You have been a governor who knows when to say enough is enough in defence of his people. And I’m sure you know what I’m talking about and I am sure the world knows.
I don’t want to say more than that but be assured that we are praying for you and you will succeed in Jesus name.
We wish all other governors who stand for their people, defend their people, and know when to say enough is enough, success, and we thank God for their lives,” Adeboye said.
Urging other governors to equally defend their people, Adeboye prayed for all state executives, adding: ”
We wish all other governors who stand for their people defend their people and know when to say enough is enough success and we thank God for their life.”
Governor Fayose who said he had woken up very early enough to receive the Adeboye, added that he was sure all Ekiti people are blessed with his coming. the governor said:
I know what it is for you to go round. And we pray that the almighty will continue to be with you as you transverse the length and breadth of the world spreading the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
We have longed and waited for your coming. We appreciate your coming because we know what it means. You have been an inspiration to so many and are indeed We need prayers that the Lord would make our year 2017 a meaningful one. We believe in God We believe in you.
The Bible says if we believe in the Prophet, we will have the benefits of the prophet and the benefits of God.
Adeboye disclosed that Ado-Ekiti remained his home as his grandmother was an indigene. He explained to the monarch that he could not resist his invitation from the palace even with his tight schedule.
“Kabiyesi, this is my home as my grand mother hailed from here. Many have been waiting for me in all parts of the state and I have to visit all of them, that is why I haven’t been coming. But I promise to specially visit you someday,” Adeboye added.
The Ewi of Ado also appreciated Adeboye’s visit saying: “You have come to your source. By your coming here today to bless the palace, you are by extension blessing all the palaces in Ekiti State and also all the people of Ekiti.”
