The late Speaker of the Ekiti State House of Assembly, Funminiyi Afuye, was yesterday buried in Ikere Ekiti, with Bishop of Ekiti Diocese, Anglican Communion, Most Rev Olusola Ajayi warning Nigerian leaders against obscene corrupt enrichment and mind-boggling material acquisition.
The Cleric said if Nigerian leaders were futuristic and circumspect of the last day, the country would be peaceful and bereft of crises of corruption, kidnapping, insurgency, vote- buying and other cankerworms that are destroying the Nigerian fabrics.
The man of God spoke yesterday in his sermon marking the church’s burial procession for Afuye held at Saint Peter’s Anglican Church, Oke ‘kere, Ikere Local Government Area of Ekiti State.
Afuye, who presided over the State Assembly for three and half years, died of a heart attack on October 19, 2022, at the age of 66.
Afuye was brought into the church in a white casket at about 9.56am, accompanied by his Wife, Titilayo, children and other family members.
Addressing the congregants during the barely one and half hours sermon, Bishop Ajayi said, “Vanity upon vanity, all is vanity. How I wish all Nigerians, especially our leaders could understand this as preached by God in the Holy Books.
“If they understand, our politicians won’t be buying votes, they won’t be embezzling what is expected to be spent for the citizens, there will be peace in Nigeria and there won’t be kidnapping, killings and insurgency
