Isaac Fayose, a brother of Ekiti governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose writes a moving open letter to him over his current travails with the General Muhammadu Buhari government. It is reproduced below:
I am writing you this letter to encourage, strengthen and remind you of this verse of the Holy Bible that says, “If God be with us, who can be against us?” As you read this letter, I pray it gives you strength and courage. I want you to know that I am with you at this time of trouble and that this turbulence is a stepping stone to a higher level in life for you.
Travelling through time, a decade ago, at this exact date, I can remember a time like this, When it was a period of turbulence for a great man I have always looked up to and admired. A man of courage, with strength as an eagle, bold as a lion, a man of great dignity and integrity.
I remember June 24, 2006, exactly 10 years today. You were falsely accused of Poultry Project Fund mismanagement and murder. You left the government house on October 16, 2006.
But, God was with you. He confused your adversaries and vindicated you from the hands of vicious and political extremists.
This same God is not dead and he is still there for you. After 8 years, which connotes the year of Ascension, God gave you the staff and placed you on that same mantle on the same date you left the government House (October 16, 2014) against all odds.
Yet again! Another turbulence. I want “YOU” to know that God of little David that killed Goliath is still with “US”. Yes! Things might seem a little rough now, but remember your name “PETER” and what it stands for…
You shall overcome with “VICTORY” as always. This battle shall pass in no time. The enemies you see now, you shall see them no more and at the end, we shall return all Glory to God.
When God is about to take you to a greater level, everything goes crazy. People will disappoint you. Friends go against you, and then you will be left all alone. In that very moment, God will be your only source and he alone will take the glory.
Your enemies tried but could not stand the power you carry. You are far stronger than they are and this is why they are petrified at the rumbling of your voice. ‘The wicked flee when no one is pursuing, but the righteous are bold as a Lion’ – Proverbs 28:1.
Think about it, “If God be with us, who can be against us?” Think about how empowering that is! Let that power infuse you, let it pour liquid steel through your spine. You have got the power, you can fight, and you will win.
Though, I am not there with you, you are always on my mind and I remember you in my prayers at all times. You can beat this. I know it, I see the warrior within you. You are a fighter.
God will continuously be with you and take care of you.
I love you, brother.
Your Brother and Son,
