People in position of authority have been urged to emulate the life of selfless service of the late Deputy Governor of Ekiti State, Mrs. Funmi Olayinka, who used the short time she spent in politics to create indelible positive impression in the lives of many people.
Rev. Peter Awelewa gave the charge in his sermon at the Commendation Service held for the late Ekiti State Deputy Governor at the Anglican Church of Ascension (CON), Opebi, Lagos on Wednesday.
He said most of the problems confronting Nigerians have their roots in the selfish leaders who use their position and office to amass wealth instead of using it for the benefit of the people who entrust and empower in them with the authority to manage the resources for the benefit of all.
Rev. Awelewa who decried various degrees of oppression in Nigeria called on leaders indulging in suck act to remember that one day death will come for them and all their ill gotten will be very useless on that day.
The Clergy noted that some of the things that made the late Olayinka famous are her glamour, humility and cheerfulness which never changed, even when she joined politics and became the Ekiti State Deputy Governor.
Rev. Awelewa who commiserated with the husband of the deceased, Architect Lanre Olayinka and his daughters urging them to take solace in the Lord’s comfort and in the and the hope of resurrection when they are going to meet again.
