Obedience, they say, is better than sacrifice; this can be attested to in the life of Hon. (Mrs.) Letty Ayakoroma, wife of the Executive Secretary, National Institute for Cultural Orientation (NICO), Prof. Barclays Foubiri Ayakoroma, who escaped the cold hands of death over the weekend.

Members of the weekly Christian Fellowship of the Institute, NICO Prays, South-West Zone, on Wednesday, 18th February, 2015, joined the Ayakoroma family to show appreciation and thanks to the Almighty God for His mercies and miraculous intervention in the life of the ES.

Testifying to God for His show of mercy and unprecedented works, Mr. Stephen Zikala gave glory to God in keeping the life of the wife of the ES, saying: “Mrs. Ayakoroma was billed to be in the entourage of some Bayelsa women, who visited Nigeria’s First Lady, Her Excellency, Dame Dr. (Mrs.) Patience Faka Jonathan, in her home town, Okrika, Rivers State, on Wednesday, 11th February, 2015.”

According to him, Mrs. Ayakoroma, like the Biblical Ruth, changed her mind on joining the team that visited the First Lady due to the fact that her husband, Prof. Barclays Foubiri Ayakoroma informed her of his intention to be in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, a day earlier than scheduled, after attending a meeting of the Institute’s Exams Board on Tuesday, February 10, 2015 in Lagos, to consider the result of NICO Training School.  

It will be recalled that about eleven (11) women from Bayelsa State were on Saturday, 14th February, burnt to death in a multiple car accident that occurred between Elele and Ahoada in Rivers State; and Mrs. Ayakoroma’s decision not to join the ill-fated entourage in order to receive her husband, saved her life.

At the end of the testimony session, worshippers gave praises to God for the preservation of life and prayed that God will continue to guide and protect His children.
