Religious leaders in Nigeria have been urged to be united and join forces together to offer prayers of restoration for the country.
Ekiti State Deputy Governor Prof Modupe Adelabu made the call while hosting the clerics from the Cherubim and Seraphim Church Movement in Nigeria, (Ayo ni o), led by Superior Apostle Prophet Ayo Fakeye in her office in Ado Ado-Ekiti “Nigeria, as a nation, needs more prayers from genuine men of God to save it from myriad of problems plaguing it,” the deputy governor told her guests.
According to her, the administration of Governor Kayode Fayemi treats all clerics and denominations as one because of its belief that religious bodies have vital roles to play in the sustenance of societal peace and development.
Mrs. Adelabu reiterated the commitment of the administration to the implementation of its Eight-Point Agenda, designed to banish poverty and leave a lasting legacy in terms of infrastructural and human capital development in the state.
The deputy governor described as laudable Prophet Fakeye’s love for the state which prompted his visit in the first instance and for his prayers for peace in the state.
In his remark, the cleric described the development that has taken place in the state as amazing even as he recalled what the state looked like during his last visit to the Land of Honour State two years ago. He commended Fayemi-led administration for lifting the state to loftier heights. Prophet Fakeye urged those on the corridors of power to always govern with the fear of God, reminding them that they will render account of their stewardship to God someday, even when they are not held accountable by the people. The cleric promised to always pray for leaders and admonish them whenever necessary.
