Adeboye meets Fayemi, says war against banditry beyond human ability

By Our Correspondent

Enoch Adeboye, general overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), met with Kayode Fayemi, governor of Ekiti state, on Saturday.

The cleric and Fayemi held a meeting at the government house, Ado-Ekiti, the state capital.

Abeboye said he visited Ekiti to pray for the residents and the state government, as well as to encourage clerics to keep up their good work.

He assured that the war against banditry and other violent crimes will soon be over, adding that the battle cannot be won with human ability.

He also condemned the attacks on traditional rulers in the state, adding that the situation shows that the gunmen lack respect for traditional institutions.

Adeboye, who said his grandmother was from Ekiti, noted that God will halt the reign of terror and violence in the country.

On his part, the governor said the visit of Abeboye is a blessing, adding that the state needs prayers to tackle insecurity.

Fayemi commended the cleric for his efforts towards ensuring that the country gets better and its citizens live in peace.

“We need prayers, we need a lot of help, our people are very very prayerful, and we know the development RCCG has witnessed under your leadership, particularly in our own setting here,” he said.

“We pray that God will continue to be good to us and heal the land and in a moment, all of us will have testimony to the good works of the Lord.

“I want to on behalf of the people of the state thank you immensely for your untiring relentless efforts in ensuring that our country gets better, our lives improve and the quality of security and safety are improved in the land”.

On Tuesday, the cleric met with Nasir el-Rufai, governor of Kaduna state — five days after eight abducted RCCG members regained their freedom.
