Fayemi: My Achievements Are God’s Handiwork

September 13, 2012

Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, has said his administration has been able to record various achievements within a short time because “God is in control in the state”.

Fayemi spoke on Thursday at the plenary of the Meeting of the Standing Committee of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) holding at the
Cathedral Church of Emmanuel, Okesa, Ado-Ekiti, the state capital.
The five-day meeting is being presided over by the Archbishop Metropolitan and the Primate of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), the Most Reverend Nicholas Okoh.
The governor said God has opened his eyes to take the right decisions in leading Ekiti which, according to him, is enjoying peace and witnessing unprecedented development in the key sectors of the economy.

He noted that his administration has always turned to God for direction at every critical point urging the clergy and the laity to always pray Ekiti and Nigeria to ensure peace and development.
Fayemi said, “Anytime we found ourselves at crossroads, God gave us direction and God has proved that help comes from nowhere but from him.
“We have turned this state into a huge construction site with road construction going on in towns, villages and remotest settlements in all parts of the state.
“Many dilapidated school buildings which had not been touched for 40 years are being demolished and rebuilt with work at completion stage in various public schools.
“Work is going on in commercial agriculture, health, tourism and other sectors. Our indigent elders are receiving N5,000 monthly.
“We solicit your ceaseless prayers for Nigeria in general and Ekiti State in particular for us to leave this state better than we met it.”

The governor expressed delight that Ekiti Diocese of the Anglican Communion is hosting a meeting of such magnitude for the first time in its 46 years of existence.
He praised Anglican clergy for always speaking the truth to those holding positions of power adding that “those holding temporal power must listen to the inner voice” in taking decisions.
Fayemi pointed out that nobody can accuse the Anglican Communion of keeping silent in the face of the various ills plaguing the society today urging the clerics to redouble their efforts to tackle challenges ahead.

“I urge you to adjust your cassocks, rekindle your lamp and re-consecrate yourselves for fresh anointing to regain the ground already lost to the devil through compromise, carelessness and distractions”, he added.

Earlier in his address, Primate Okoh promised that the clergy would continue to work and pray for the success of the Goodluck Jonathan-led administration.
The head of the Anglican Communion in Nigeria demanded what he called “a more effective strategy and tactics to contain the menace of Boko
Haram” in the country.

Okoh condemned the proposed bill for Fulani Commission in which the government seeks to create permanent routes and reserves for Fulani nomads describing the bill as a “recipe for endless crisis and unwarranted promotion of an ethnic group over and above others”.
He charged all bishops and clergymen in the church to defend Christian heritage and civilization from “deliberate oversights of the political magistracy on the one hand and cultural imposition and subtlety on the other.”
