The General Overseer of the Redeem Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has praised Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State for his governance and leadership style.
The General Overseer visited Gov. Bello in Lokoja on Saturday. Adeboye also commended the governor for his religious tolerance describing him as a man of faith.
Adeboye said that the show of faith by Bello in handling the Coronavirus pandemic was a rare demonstration from a political leader.
The pastor said, “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,”
While responding, Gov. Bello said Adeboye is a father figure who served as a role model to many across the country, himself inclusive. He also said he was delighted to be hosting the revered clergy.
According to the governor, considering the circumstances surrounding his emergence as governor and his election for a second term, he made up his mind to do good by providing credible and impacting governance to the people of Kogi State.
Bello urged Pastor Adeboye to continue to pray for Nigeria and Kogi state, as well as both leadership and followership.
