The outspokenness, courage and boldness Governor Ayodele Fayose of Ekiti state has continued to display even in the face of many trials, has attracted the blessings of the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, to the Ekiti State governor.
This was as the respected pastor on Saturday called on other state governors in the country to emulate Fayose, who he said has been outstanding in defence and protection of his people even at the risk of his own life.
The clergy stated this in Ado-Ekiti when he visited the palace of Ewi of Ado-Ekiti, Oba Rufus Adejugbe Aladesanmi 111, before proceeding to a crusade at the Oluyemi Kayode Stadium.
Adeboye said, “Your Excellency, we thank God for your life, courage, boldness and being willing to take the risk so that your people can be protected and I know you know what I am talking about. You can be sure that we are praying for you and you will succeed. I hope other governors will stand for their people like you and defend their people and say enough is enough,” Adeboye said.
Governor Fayose had earlier said that Nigerians are happy with the efforts of Adeboye in spreading the gospel round the world, adding “we will continue to pray that God strengthens you. Your visit is annually and when a man of God passes by, we want to take that advantage for him to bless us.”
Fayose has been a fierce critic of the President Muhammadu Buhari administration and one Nigerian governor who boldly stood against the marauding herdsmen, that have continued to unleash sorrows and deaths across the country.
Fayose put up a law that makes illegal grazing in Ekiti state a punishable offence.
