Worse of Nigerian Governors Today Is The Youngest –Rev. Bello
By editor on September 14, 2018
The Bishop of Otukpo Anglican Diocese, Rt. Rev. David Bello, on Friday, declared that the worse of Nigerian governors today was the youngest .
Bello said this at St. Peters Cathedral , Ake, Abeokuta ,during a church service to celebrate the 75th birthday of the Alake and Paramount ruler of Egba Land, Oba Adedotun Gbadebo.
He noted that age had nothing to do with position or power , saying that applying wisdom wisely made someone a good leader.
He called on politicians not to get intoxicated by power but should take their election to office as a call to serve the people who elected them.
The bishop noted that public offices should be seen as an avenue to serve the people, saying that politicians should serve the people with the fear of God at heart.
He noted that whatever one become in life does not mean he was the best for the job , saying that it was only the mercy of God that put someone in position.
“People say they want to contest for power. It is not power. Whether you are the President, Governor, a Senator or member of the House of Representatives, you are called to serve the people.
“And when you have served, that is when you deserve to be called honourable.
“The position is not a contest for power and that’s where we get it wrong.
“If you go into office to serve and you become a billionaire, you’re a thief. You’re not to go there and become a billionaire.
“In fact you’re expected to lose something and because you have lost something , people will respect you and honour you. So, we should try to see things for what they are,” he said.
In his goodwill message, Gov. Ibikunle Amosun, praised the Alake of Egba land for the support he had given to the government both at the state and Federal level.
Amosun reiterated that the state would continue to witness massive development with the support of the people.
Ogun Today reports that the only lesson for the service was read from the book of Mathew 5 : 1-16 and was read by the celebrant.
Dignitaries at the church service include, Former governor of Ogun state, Olusegun Osoba, Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, the Olu and Paramount ruler of Ilaro, Oba Kehinde Olugbenle, Deputy Governor of the state, Yetunde Onanuga.
