Kumuyi said this when he led other senior pastors of the church on a courtesy visit to Imoke at Government House in Calabar.
The General Superintendent was in Calabar for a three-day special retreat, organised by his ministry. He said that the prayer had become necessary so that the Imoke “visionary leadership in transforming the state” could continue.“Anyone who comes here knows that there is visionary leadership, there is security and fellowship and warmness among the people.
“This has lifted the state in its vision to develop the needed infrastructure to stand out as a preferred destination.”
He also commended what he called the prevalent peace and security in the state. “It was a wonderful experience driving through the city. I had a clear sense of security and tranquility.
“I dare say that Calabar has earned a reputation as tourists’ centre that has attracted people from within and outside the country.
“It is the security in the state and Calabar in particular that has made it gain its fame as a tourists’ haven where people visit year in year out from all over the world. It is now a centre for major conferences,” Kumuyi said.
He prayed that God should send a level-headed successor and for a peaceful transition. “I identify with this government and pray that as the state transits, the vision and the strides recorded by you be sustained by God-fearing leader who will take over from you.”
Responding to Kumuyi, Imoke lauded the exemplary disposition of Pastor Kumuyi, adding that Kumuyi “is a distinguished personality, a man who truly represents what leadership and service to God is all about”.
He said that Kumuyi had placed the church on a strong leadership foundation.
Imoke said the prelate had not only propagate the gospel but gone a step further in relating with those at the grass-roots level, sharing with them the Word in a manner it ought to be to glorify God.
“For us in Cross River State, we try to conduct ourselves in a manner that is truly God-fearing as we serve our people, knowing very well that we will all be held accountable for all our actions and our activities,” Imoke said.
He urged the clerics to remember the state and country at large in their prayers, especially with the current security challenges which, he said, shall soon be overcome.
