Waoh! Wonderful!! Wonderful!!! Wonderful!!! Truly the love for Ekiti State’s unity and progress is paramount to an average Ekiti man. It’s not negotiable. No sacrifice is too small or too big when it comes to making effort that will move the state forward. Whenever I am outside the state and there’s a discussion especially about our behavioural pattern and politics, I always respond by telling those who care to listen that Ekiti State is a peculiar state, and may be because it’s monolithic in culture and settlement. A state with only one language that’s flavoured by only one dialect!!! This is what promotes the spirit of oneness among us. God is great. Glory be to God for the presence of unity and one love in the state. Hallelujah!!!
How do I mean??? We disagree and agree in the name of integrity. This because our integrity is our identity, and it’s always the subject matter. No wonder that God settled us on the Land of Honour!!!
Giving is part of our culture. This is why we are God’s people. We give especially to promote progress, development of the state. This is what prompted our own Akinlayo Kolawole the House of Representative’s candidate to contribute to the Swearing-in Ceremony of Ekiti State Governor-elect, Mr. Biodun Ayobami Oyebanji (a.k.a. BAO). And in a swift response, the ARKofBAO as the mother of all groups expressed its appreciation as follows:
*_WAO Akinlayo kolawole, the incoming MHR from Ekiti North has multiplied the happiness and joy of ArkofBAO at state level and all ward coordinators of ArkofBAO in the three local government of his constituency with surprise packages of Inauguration regalia of BAO BAO BAO BAO BAO………….._*
Beloved Akinlayo Kolawole, MHR to be, you are very wonderful. Highly fantastic!!! The contribution in your own way is highly appreciated. You will not miss your own good reward in Jesus name. Your service is unto the Lord. How??? It’s written that: “Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these My brethren, ye have have done it unto Me… Matt.25:40.
When we give to BAO’s swearing-in ceremony, we must understand that we are giving it to God because it’s the Lord’s project. Therefore, as we are giving, it means we are investing for the scriptures say: ” He…lendeth unto the Lord; and… He will pay him again… Prov.19:17. And that: “Whatsoever thou spendest….when I come, I will repay…Lk.10:30-37.
In conclusion, we must know that no effort is in vain. God will definitely pay us back for any sacrificial giving. It is a divine instruction that: ” Cast thy bread upon the waters: thou shalt find it…Eccl.11:1. So, my dear brother, all your labour and the efforts already made and the ones to make for the successful swearing-in ceremony will not be in vain. Heaven will reward you adequately and beyond your expectation, and your joy shall be full roundabout for God’s glory in Jesus name. Ameeeeen!!!
We all say thanks so much sir. You are highly appreciated. Shalom!!!
