Pastor Enoch Adeboye, General Overseer, the Redeemed Christian Church of God, has paid a visit to Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State.
During his visit to him on Saturday in Lokoja, Adeboye commended the governor and had this to say:
“We have heard and seen your show of faith in God, particularly in dealing with the coronavirus. It takes the man of faith to have acted the way you did and we are very, very pleased with you.
“We have also heard the news of how you have been relating to people of every faith to the extent that you built the first chapel in the Government House, Lokoja, we are delighted, sir.
“I want to assure you that we will keep on praying for you, we will keep on praying for the people of your state and I believe that the Almighty God will answer our prayers for you,” Adeboye said.
Adeboye further assured the governor that he would continue to offer prayers for the leadership and people of the state at large.
In his response, Bello told Adeboye that the visit of the clergy was a gift and he was delighted to be hosting a father figure who served as a role model to many across the country, himself inclusive.
Bello asserted that it was evil for any leader to continually do wrong without recourse to natural justice.
The governor noted that in Kogi State under his leadership and considering the circumstances surrounding his emergence as governor and his election for a second term, his resolve was to do good by providing credible and impacting governance.
He alluded that his administration’s strive to ensure ethnic, religious balance, fighting criminality and other modest achievements were only natural and mandatory obligations expected of leaders bequeathed with the people’s mandate.
Bello urged Adeboye to continue to pray for the country, and the state.

Speaking with PUNCH, the grieving father said, ““Each time he was flying, he would tell me and I would pray for him. But this last one, he didn’t tell me. But God knows better. It has not been my prayer holding him, but God that has been holding him. God gave me Ayodeji and He had taken him; may his soul rest in peace. If it is from God, glory be to Him. If it is from man, God will judge.
It is devastating. I just need prayers for strength. I pray that...
