The Speaker of the Ekiti State House of Assembly, Right Honourable (Pastor)

Kola Oluwawole, has described 2016 as “a year of prophesy and

testimonies” for Nigerians, declaring that despite the economic

challenges, Nigerians will have testimonies.

Oluwawole, who made the declaration in a New Year message signed by

his media aide, Stephen Gbadamosi, on Thursday, noted that crossing

the boundary of 2015 was enough for people to appreciate God.

He said “after the war, the Israelites came to Moses and said ‘no one

is missing’ in Number chapter 31 verse 49. As we are not missing in

2016, we shall have a year of prophesy; a year of testimonies. I

particularly have it on God’s authority that despite the economic

downturn, Nigerians will praise God.

“I felicitate with the good people of Ekiti State and Nigeria at large

on the occasion of this New Year. I want us to believe that we will

weather the storm. Please, continue to support the Ayo Fayose-led

government in the New Year and beyond. Even as tough as things are

now, we have causes to thank the Almighty God.”

Oluwawole also charged leaders in the country not to play politics

with the lives of the people, adding that it was better for leaders to

be realistic and lay bare all government policies for the people to be

adequately aware of happenings in governance.

While lauding the state governor, Dr Peter Ayodele Fayose, for his

exemplary leadership, the Speaker charged other Nigerian leaders to

take a leaf out of his book and be truthful to the people they claim

to serve.

“We must turn a new leaf in the New Year. As leaders, we must be

truthful to the people we claim to serve. That is why the style of

governance of Dr Ayodele Fayose is commendable and must be commended

to other leaders,” he said.

The Speaker also urged Nigerians to observe the New year festivities

with moderation, adding that “much as we expect the prophesies of God

to come to fruition, we must reflect soberly on what had transpired in

the out-gone year.”
