If you haven ’t earned it , if you haven ’t delivered , there is nothing excellent in the Excellency . You are just Mr Governor for crying out loud and it is only when you have finished the kingdom assignment , when you have finished God’ s work in the chosen place that you have been called to do that people can say in truth that you are a good representation and you deserve to be called ‘Excellency ’.
