The General Overseer of the
Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has prayed for Ekiti
State Governor, Ayo Fayose, to succeed in standing up for the masses.

prayer during a visit to the state as part of his nationwide tour for the
RCCG’s annual ‘Let’s go a-fishing’ programme.
Adeboye, who was received by Fayose
and the Ewi of Ado, Oba Rufus Adejugbe, was quoted in the statement saying, “We
thank God for your life. We thank God for your courage and for your boldness.

“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
The RCCG leader also prayed for
other state governors.
“We wish all other governors who
stand for their people, defend their people, and know when to say enough is
enough, success. We thank God for their life,” he said.
Fayose in the statement, said he
was sure all Ekiti people were blessed by Adeboye’s visit.
“I know what it means for you to go
around (the country). We pray that the almighty will continue to be with you as
you traverse 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
many people. We need prayers that the Lord will make 2017 a meaningful year. We
believe in God; we believe in you. The Bible says if we believe in the prophet,
we’ll have the benefits of the prophet and the benefits of God,” the governor
Adeboye, whose grandmother hailed
from Ado Ekiti, told the Ekiti monarch that he could not resist his invitation
to call at his palace even though his schedules were tight.
He said, “Kabiyesi, this is my home
as my grandmother 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 here.
But I promise to specially visit you someday.”
