.Assures on Great Things


Wife of Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Olayemi Oyebanji, has said the state is enjoying an unprecedented divine favour during her husband’s reign because of the decision of her husband, Governor Biodun Oyebanji to hand over the control of the state from inception back to God.

Speaking during the June edition of the monthly Evening of Praise and Worship held at Lady Jibowu Hall, Government House, Ado Ekiti on Friday, Dr. Oyebanji said God has been so gracious to her husband and to the state under his leadership, in his husband’s quest for progress and development of the state.

The First Lady, who is the convener of the Evening of Praise and Worship, said, “It is God that has been ruling in the affairs of Ekiti state, but He just put Governor Oyebanji in the saddle to fulfill His divine wishes for the state.”

According to the governor’s wife, the decision to always set aside a day in every month to praise God is to allow God a pride of place in the state and also to cause the land to yield its increase.

This month’s edition of Evening of Praise and Worship had as its theme, “He is Faithful.” It was attended by the Deputy Governor, Chief (Mrs) Monisade Afuye; the Deputy Speaker of Ekiti State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Bolaji Olagbaju; wife of the Speaker, Mrs. Adenike Aribasoye; outgoing Head of Service, Engr. Sunday Komolafe; government officials, civil servants,and members of the public, among others.

The First Lady who substantiated her remarks with Psalm 67:5 said the good work started by God in Ekiti would not stop and would benefit all and sundry.

“Our God is not a God of abandoned projects; His good work is continuing, and by His grace, there will be no reversal, there shall be no stoppage, and there shall be no slowing down of the good works.

“I appreciate our dear Governor, my darling husband, for this platform,” said the wife of the governor.

“I want to appreciate the Governor for giving me this platform to complement him in my little way through my WAOH Project, through Adire Ekiti training of unemployed women, youths, and graduates. Likewise, the opportunity to go to our universities to teach. I want to thank him for all these platforms. ”

While praying that God will make Ekiti a template for economic growth and development in Nigeria, Dr. Oyebanji urged the people of the state to continue their support for Governor Oyebanji for the state to become a shining example in the comity of states in Nigeria.

The First Lady appreciated everybody who attended the Evening of Praise and Worship urging them to always make it a duty to show up every last Friday of the month to show appreciation to God for the great things He is doing in the Land of Honour.

She expressed gratitude to the Deputy Governor who led other government officials to the session; the guest artiste, the Gratitude Tribe and the guest choir from the Cathedral Church of Emmanuel (Anglican Communion) for their ministrations.
