The Bishop of Ekiti Anglican Diocese, Rt Revd Christopher Omotunde, has told the State Governor, Dr Kayode Fayemi, not to be swayed by people’s commendations of his performance in office.

Instead he urged the Governor to further commit himself to the work and continually seek the face of God to determine the next step in actualising the divine purpose for which God gave him a second term in office.

Delivering a sermon at the thanksgiving service marking the 56th birthday of the Governor’s wife, Erelu Bisi Fayemi, the Bishop noted that Fayemi has started repositioning the State within the few months of being inaugurated as governor.

Omotunde said Fayemi’s return to office after a four-year interregnum was for some divine assignments which he must actualise.

The clergyman said that the governor should be prepared for challenges in the course of serving the people. He however urged him to continually seek God’s face and divine direction in order to surmount the challenges.

Bishop Omotunde said: “Don’t depend on people’s praise singing because they don’t know why God brought you back. Rather, you should sit back and ask God what is next.

“This is not the limit that God has for you. There will be challenges but they are mere shadows. God will turn every problem challenging you to shadows.”

Speaking at the thanksgiving service which took place at the Government House Chapel, the governor’s wife, Erelu Fayemi, thanked God for giving her the opportunity to witness another year.

The First Lady pledged her commitment to more philanthropic works; saying that the essence of life is to better the lot of the masses.

The first lesson of the thanksgiving service was taken from Psalm 23 and was read by Governor Fayemi while his wife read the second lesson from Philippians 3 vs 1-18.
