Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, has advised state governors to emulate their Ekiti State counterpart, Ayo Fayose, in protecting the interest of their people.

Mr. Adeboye stated this on Saturday in Ado-Ekiti at the palace of the Ewi of Ado-Ekiti, Adeyemo Adejugbe.

The renowned cleric, who paid a call on the monarch before attending a crusade at the unusually crowded Oluyemi Kayode Stadium, Ado Ekiti, described the governor as a great defender of his people and their cause.

He commended the governor for taking great risks of defending and protecting the interests of his people.

“Your Excellency, we thank God for your life, courage, boldness and being willing to take the risk,” the pastor said.

“You are doing this so that your people can be protected and I know you are aware of what I am talking about.

“You can be sure that we are praying for you and you will succeed. I hope other governors will stand for their people like you and defend their people and say enough is enough,” he said

Mr. Adeboye who prayed for the restoration of the lost glory of Ekiti, also commended the Ekiti monarch for leading his people in the way of God.

Earlier, the governor said Nigerians appreciate the efforts of Mr. Adeboye at taking the gospel round the world‎.

“We ‎know that it is at this time of the year that you go round and we pray that God strengthens you.

“Your visit is annually and when a man of God passes by, we want to take that advantage for him to bless us, we appreciate your efforts at taking the gospel round the world‎,” he said.

NAN reports that Mr. Adejugbe, during the visit, described Mr. Adeboye’s visit as a blessing to the palace, and the people of the state in general.

The pastor later held a revival at the stadium and later visited Ikere Ekiti, Ilawe Ekiti and Ogotun-Ekiti.

    The so called man of God should know that religion and politics mixing is a bad idea…

    • KBE

      I believe a governor is a person entrusted with a mandate to protect and defend the interest of his people. A governor is not worth the trust if he can’t guarantee protection of lives and property of the people who gave the mandate. There is nothing wrong in anybody encouraging him along that line. That is a matter of fact and not just politics. He is no saint by any stretch of imagination but Fayose has done well in protecting interest of ekiti.

        He has also done sea, swimming pool and play ground for the young and elderly. The only mouth peace for the opposition.

      Until the army takes over your land for cattle grazing. Buhari is the patron of the cattle rustlers association, which is why they can kill anybody anywhere without prosecution

    • paul irumundomon

      It is a lucrative business in nigeria

  • Sanmi Falae

    One wonders if Pastor Adeboye knows what is really going on in Nigeria or listen to our news and reads our papers. Fayose does not give a hoot about the interest and welfare of Ekiti people. On the contrary, he is using, abusing or exploiting Ekiti people to safeguard and promote his own personal interests.

    • Lakeside

      Speak for yourself. Are you from Ekiti? What’s your stress? We that are from Ekiti are happy with what we have. Our governor, the people’s governor. Go on soun.

      • Fasco

        It is only people of shallow minds like yourself that will say he is contented with fayose in ekiti. Ekiti people suffer and smile,their life is full of pretence. Fayose isn’t concerned abt the masses but just himself, he only does the gov of the masses thing as camoflaque, I am ekiti born and I know that we have entered a one chance bus..

      • paul irumundomon

        Apc wants to represent everybody in every state. They have turned god, anything not from them must be a lie. You must belong to apc, for you to be relevant and reliable. Even if is overwhelmingly correct, it must also be stated or written by them. The head is 80 years old, at 80 in nigeria, is when they reinforce lies bias and fraud.

  • Kevin Peter

    Truth is bitter! It was for this purpose that Jesus Christ was persecuted and killed. For those who perpetually look at Fayose as a sinful man without looking at his good sides, I challenge them to cast further stones if they have never sinned either by commission or omission. Merry Christmas to all and wishing everyone a fruitful celebration as we all reflect on forgiveness and way forward. Peace!

      Bag of rice is 25,000, what is merry in the chridtmas.

      • serubawon70

        The merry is in the christmas not in the rice

        • paul irumundomon

          It is a package, it goes together, if you really mean that word

  • Taiwo

    South east is a no go area because he fears the assassin’s bullets. South West detest him because he is not ‘omoluabi’. Yet, when his wife vowed not to publicly campaign for him again, he told her that he understood the Nigerian politics (of election rigging) better than her.

  • jon

    Fools I hope he shared the 300 million naira defrozen account to his so called loving people please tell me in last what has fayose done for ekiti

    • paul irumundomon

      Buhari brought the price of rice to 25,000 per bag. Is that an archivement, that only the few can afford Nigeria most popular food. Some families in Nigeria today, will see rice but can’t not afford to eat rice.

      • jon

        Very funny where do buy rice 25k when you come nija you confirm rice is 8k is what I bought this Xmas 10 bags shared to village 25k is all lies propaganda have they told you first time in many years no fuel scarcity at Xmas time please visit nija your self not hear say

        • paul irumundomon

          The only reason, Nigeria will remain in this positions, is the way people who have been taken advantage of, are the same very people, who carry stories that are untrue, for their oppressors to continue the oppressions.
          In benin Republic, where the rice come from, you can’t see bag of rice for this your this ridiculous prices. I don’t know why a Nigerian would lie on Christmas day, write that the price of a bag of rice is 8,000.
          You people are now been confused by the fake change of buhari governmemt, to admit everything is ok, when it is not.
          Premium Times, wrote how the army fighting Boko haram can’t even have drinking water, the army did not see any thing funny anymore about facts. Shoukd we all have to lie to ourselves. It is not healthy in our buhari system, and is a shame for the down trodden, to tell the world, they are ok and everything is going as planned. Speak the truth, not that it is of help to Nigerians anymore, it may help others to look us and show some concerns, it ends there because we chose and cherish what is happening in Nigeria, and to us.
          When you buy ten bags, have you turned father Christmas to your villagers, my village did not have the privilege to have access, to buy rice and distribute among my folks. No wonder, your deceitful false stories won’t bother you a bit. We voted for this change, we must take it all today.

  • OGK

    Adeboye was only being ‘politically correct’ before Fayose. Inside him, he knows he does not pray for any governor to be like Fayose. Don’t blame the Enoch of our time anyway; just now I remember Deuteronomy 16:19. I rest my case.

    • Arogbo

      Pastor Adeboye was commending Governor Fayose for his stand against Fulani herdsmen who are terrorizing Nigerian communities. The menace of these herdsmen has put a dent on President Buhari’s image.

    • Tobias Njoku

      It’s you who is being politically correct not Adeboye as i know he knows what he is taking about now you want me to believe that all the lies the APC is spreding aginst Fayose is true well when the time comes you will know that The Man Of God is right i am from IMO STATE but i can tell you that Fayose is one of the best in the S.WEST if we have in my state some one like him we shall be celebrating by now

  • Mufu Ola

    “Protect the interest of their people” by stealing their money as Fayose had done & was caught red handed?

    • Tobias

      who caught him ??

  • Wale Allen

    Nice endorsement from an iconic preacher. God bless Daddy Adeboye.

  • Arc_Deji_Alabi

    How come the Pastor refuse to rebuke Fayose for beating up a judge, setting up fake poultry and using billions of looted Nigeria’s money to win election. Am a member of RCCG, but for me this is classic hypocrisy.
    Am yet to hear him condemn Erastus Akingbola his church member for looting Intercontinental Bank.
    He never spoke against the looting of GEJ, GEJ was in Redemption Camp twice
