Founder and General Superintendent, Deeper Life Bible Church, Williams Kumuyi has written a letter to the new governor of Ekiti State, Ayo Fayose directing him to be God-conscious in his four-year rule.
'Rule Ekiti With The Fear Of God' - Deeper Life Founder Tells Fayose
Pastor Kumuyi urged Gov. Fayose to imbibe timeless tenets of “integrity, openness, transparency and prudence in the discharge of his duties”
In the letter which was read during the Thanksgiving Church Service on Sunday, October 19, Pastor Kumuyi urged Gov. Fayose to imbibe timeless tenets of “integrity, openness, transparency and prudence in the discharge of his duties”.
The Nation reports that the Deeper Life founder was represented by another pastor, Jeremiah Asemota, who expressed his appreciation for the Governor’s choice of the church for the programme, noting that leadership whether spiritual or temporal was divine with attached responsibilities.
Speaking at the occasion during what was tagged “Testimony session”, Fayose pledged to resist attempts by sycophants to tele-guide him regarding the management of the affairs of the state, noting he had forgiven all his detractors and those who worked against him in the struggle.
He stated: “Having a second chance is very rare. If this time has been in Bible days, my name would have been one of the names to be recorded as those who God gave a second chance. My return to government is not common in history. It is a rare miracle.
“During the seven and half years of my political wilderness, I was taken to Court over what I knew nothing about 59 times aside the 45 days I spent in Ikoyi Prisons during my trial by the EFCC.
“My Security and political aides like Chief Dayo Okondo were incarcerated for three and half years without committing any offence. I won’t allow sycophants to derail me again.
“All my property were left in the Government House because I had to run for dear life. But this time my mission is to look after Ekiti people and not to fight anybody. I will not allow this position to go into my head or use it to oppress anybody. I don’t have anybody in mind to punish, battle with or fight in any way”, the Governor said.
He further expressed gratitude to the traditional rulers for supporting the truth and standing firm against those he alleged of scheming to thwart his inauguration.
Governor’s wife, Feyisetan, expressed gratitude for what she called a special favour of God who she said had revealed to her that her husband would return to power.
In her testimony, Mrs Fayose said: ”God revealed to me that my husband, Mr Ayodele Fayose will return as the Governor, but he never told me the time. God told me that our return would be done in such a way that will beat the people’s imagination.
But because of the trouble we went through, at a time, I prayed to God to please push my husband out of politics. Later, God told me that He will leave him there for him to prove His power.
“After we left, Gen Tunji Olurin came, Segun Oni and come Governor Kayode Fayemi and today God has manifested His power. This is not by our power or strength, but by the grace of God”, she said.
She further disclosed that her husband facilitated her closeness to God 19 years ago, when he took him to Deeper Life, “where I found God because I was deep in worldliness in terms of dressing and behaviour. Today God has seized my life and I thank Him for restoring our lost glory”.
Meanwhile, a statement at the weekend signed by Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr Idowu Adelusi in Ado-Ekiti, stated that Fayose has appointed Mr Lanre Ogunsuyi as Special Assistant on Information and Civic Orientation.
