Ekiti State governor, Mr Ayodele Fayose, has led about 500 men of God to pray against plan to put him to ridicule and for calamity befalling Nigeria in 2016.
Governor Fayose, with the men of God from various churches prayed against those plotting his downfall in 2016, saying they shall be put to disgrace if they refuse to back down on their evil plot.
Leading a prayer session with the congregation of the clerics and leaders of churches at the government office in Ado Ekiti, which was convened in collaboration with the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, the governor prophesied that there would be events in the country in 2016 that would shake the country to its foundation.
Fayose warned those planning his downfall to desist from such plan or shall be visited by the wrath of God, describing himself as an anointed leader, who cannot be brought down by any evil machination.
The governor, who begged the religious leaders to continue to preach to their congregation to pay their taxes, denied the widespread insinuation that he was planning to impose taxes on churches, adding that the new taxes he introduced were to shore up the revenue of the state.
“We must pray for the unity of this country, because some events will happen in Nigeria in 2016 that will shake the country to its roots.
“I also want you to pray that whoever plots against me or my government should be disgraced. I never knew how I came back to government for second term, because I was down and out, but the power of God brought me back.
“Bible made me to understand that if you want to conquer me, you should first conquer God and I know nobody can conquer our creator. So, whoever plots against me, either at the federal or state level or wherever, shall be put to reproach”, Fayose said.
He urged the men of God to pray fervently for the state and country to recover from the present economic doldrums, Fayose said: “You know when the economy is sick, the church is sick as well.
“I received the worst allocation this December. The state got N1.3 billion, while we need N2.6bn to pay salary. So, I urge you to continue to pray for the country’s quick economic revival.
“Though, not that I have not noticed some financial recklessness perpetrated in the past, but I promised not to probe because it constitutes a distraction.
“That is why people like you must hold we leaders accountable for whatever we do. I promise to be open and be transparent to you so that you can defend this government anywhere even if I am not there”, he said.
The CAN Chairman in Ekiti, Apostle Peter Ogunkinle praised Fayose for his openness and openly announced that another round of prayers has been scheduled for March 8, 2016.
Ogunkinle described Fayose as an anointed leader, who was specially created by God to serve humanity, assuring that the body will continue to support him in his quest to develop the state.
