Mrs. Fayose, who spoke to thousands of Ekiti people during this year’s edition of inter-religiuos thanksgiving service organized by the office of Senior Special Adviser to governor Fayose on Religious Matters, Pastor Seyi Olusola, said it was high time for all enemies of Fayose, very close to him, but pretending as friends, to be exposed in shame.
“Every enemy pretending as friends, close to the government of Ayo Fayose and working against the government, the Lord will expose them with shame this year. Enough is enough”, she said.
Urging Ekiti people to dismiss any negative predictions against the state and its government, Mrs. Fayose said God had assured her not to entertain any fear for her husband’s government in 2017, adding: “don’t listen to whatever prophecies you are hearing from anyone. Anybody can say whatever they feel, but God has given all the power to turn every negative utterances to your favour. Confess positive things about Ekiti and it shall be so, no matter what any one says.
“God has assured me through Isaiah 41:13, saying ‘Fear not’, there are 365 ‘fear nots’ in the Bible, one for each day in a year. God continued saying: for I the lord thy God will hold thy right hand , saying unto thee, fear not I’ll help thee’.
“The Lord said He will help us and we should fear not. I pray the Lord will give us the grace and enablement to hold these words and confess them daily.”
The first Lady also gave testimony about the challenges her husband faced in 2016 thus: “My testimony is unending because God has been good to me, gracious and wonderful to my family. I will lose count in tabulating them; in all families he favoured my family, favoured my husband and me among all men and women.
“It is not to say we are the most perfect or wonderful, it is just because He has chosen to love us. In 2015, December, the Lord said that we will have series of victories in 2016, when you are expecting victories prepare for battle.
“In spite of all challenges, I held on to His word that I will have series of victory and I continued to ask for God’s Grace. If It had not been for the Lord, we would have lost out: it is not because Fayose is a superman. It is just God’s grace. Whoever is not happy with this government, you are contending with God not us. I sincerely congratulate all who stood by us in this government so far.”
In his sermon at the occasion, Pastor in charge of Ekiti branch of Christ Apostolic Church, (CAC), Chapel of Mercy, Pastor Joseph Babatope Adeyemo, enjoined all Ekiti people to continue to have hope against all odds, saying: “Hope is a state of mind that keeps us going in life.
“I urge us to enlarge our hope for the good of the state and nation at large. One who has hope will stand every adversary: we all know last year was very difficult, we were worst hit because we are predominantly a consuming nation; leading to economic recession.
“We should have hope because we serve a God who can bring something out of nothing. The message for us is to hope against hope for our blessings shall come. Abraham was hopeful and patient and eventually had Isaac.”
