A cleric, Reverend Father Anthony Ologunja has charged politicians and political appointees to use the opportunity given to then by God and the people to serve and work for the welfare of the people rather than for self service and accumulation of wealth at the detriment of the people who entrusted them with power.

The Revd. Father gave the charge recently at the St. George Catholic Church, Ijunrin-Ekiti during the thanksgiving service held in honour of the the Chief of Staff to the Ekiti State Governor, Hon. Biodun Omoleye.

Revd Father Ologunja admonished Hon. Omoleye to be closer to God, and use his appointment to impact on the people in his community and Ekiti State at large and always remember that there is life after leaving office.

The Catholic cleric, who charged the Chief of Staff to the Governor to always give wise counsel to the Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, warned him to be careful of people who may cause disaffection between him and the governor bearing in mind that the governor’s success is equally his success.

Speaking at the occasion, Chief Abiodun Omoleye thanked Governor Kayode Fayemi for the confidence reposed in him in appointing him his Chief of Staff which offered him another opportunity to serve Ekiti people again.

He promised to be loyal to the governor and work in tandem with th policy and agenda of Governor Fayemi-led administration which he assured would bring rapid development to the State.

The thanksgiving service was attended by the Deputy Governor, Otunba Bisi Egbeyemi, wife of the Governor of Ekiti State, Erelu Bisi Fayemi, the Speaker of Ekiti State House of Assembly, Rt. Hon. Adeniran Alagbada, the Secretary to the State Government, Mr. Biodun Oyebanji, traditional rulers, Clergy Men and other dignitaries from within and outside Ekiti State.
