Yes! Many people don’t know that Erelu Bisi Fayemi is truly a Minister.
The Oxford Advanced Learners Dictionary defines minister as someone who attends to the needs of others. This means that a minister sees to the needs of others.
In Christianity, a minister is a person authorised by a church to perform functions such as teaching of beliefs; leading services such as weddings, baptisms, funerals as well as providing spiritual guidance to members.
In politics, a minister heads a ministry, and he is responsible for making and implementing decisions on policies in conjunction with the other ministers.
The church’s perspective of a minister further ascribes some qualities of such a minister of God to the individual and these qualities include: loving and caring, being meek, having Integrity, good conscience, and inspiring members to love God, among others qualities.
Yes!, it is true that many do not know that Erelu Bisi Adeleye-Fayemi, a highly compasionate, charming and amiable wife of the out-going Governor of Ekiti state, Dr. John Kayode Fayemi, is indeed a ‘Minister’! Although her ministerial duty exceeds the confines of religion or politics for she is simply a minister for humanity!.
The fact that Erelu Fayemi combines all the aforementioned outstanding qualities of a minister in her dealings in different fora, activities and actions to all, qualifies her eminently to be called a minister for humanity.
Erelu Bisi Fayemi is truly a minister of humanity, sent by God to Ekiti people. She is simply a model for good mothers to emulate as she is indeed a Minister and caring mother General.
Without mincing words, Erelu Bisi is virtuous, beautiful, loving, benevolent, generous, inspiring, empathetic, affectionate, and merciful and in fact, a super human!.
She is a ‘Mother General’ who has been ministering love, care, kindness, and great compassion to all around the world with special emphasis on making life better for Ekiti people.
Her extending the hand of genuine love and care to Ekiti people without political trappings makes her stand out amongst the First Ladies.
She has a special passion for better life for the people of Ekiti irrespective of their political, social, and religious backgrounds.
To all Ekiti people, she is a destiny helper, an ‘Abiyamo tooto’ (caring mother), and an ‘Eleyinju aanu’ (compassionate woman).
Many lives and homes she has been able to touch with her humanitarian gestures till date have become happy ever after.
Erelu Fayemi has a deeper divine calling as a minister of God with extraordinary super touch of love that shows that she is an angel of God, sent to minister goodness to Ekiti in a special way.
Many homes are still standing till today because of the positive imputs of this assertive, disciplined, fighter and defender of women’s rights called Erelu Bisi Fayemi.
Women’s place which hitherto, has been relegated to the background in Ekiti society with regards to politics, marrriage and virtually other social aspects, have now been upgraded in Ekiti because our women now have a mother who can fight for them if they have been cheated in any way, in their marriages, in the community and even in politics.
Mrs. Fayemi’s role in the aforementioned areas have been stabilizing the outgoing Governor Fayemi’s government to the admiration of all and sundry.
What is most rewarding in Erelu Bisi’s benevolence has been her efforts and roles in ensuring the success of the enthronement of the in -coming Government of Biodun Abayomi Oyebanji, (BAO). This is worthy of commendation.
She has been simply fantastic, courageous, dazzling, steadfast, diligent, selfless, devoted, and dynamic in her support for the enthronement of the BAO’s government and the All Progressives Party Congress (APC) in Ekiti.
The outgoing Governor having successful completed his second term with numerous achievements in form of a lot of projects to be commissioned soon and handed over to the democratically elected government of same APC by October this year.
This done, Ekiti is sure marching on to greater heights and this is happening courtesy of Erelu the Minister of God and humanity!. The great woman behind this success story is Erelu Bisi Fayemi. Take it or leave it!.
In fact, in my own opinion, without her, there will not be a successful Governor Fayemi and as well, there might not have been an In-coming BAO’s government.
Let’s Pray for This woman!!!
My own prayer is that God Almighty will continue to keep you for us and continue to guide you and prosper you continually so that many more of the good deeds for humanity will continue and your divine assignnent in which you are delivering to the people will continue for longer years. Amen.
