Kumuyi urges Nigerians to support govt as state-wide crusade ends
THE General Superintendent, Deeper Christian Life Ministry, Pastor William Folorunsho Kumuyi, has called on Nigerians to co-operate with the present government and patiently watch the outcome of the process of re-organising things geared towards stamping out corruption in the nation.
The cleric, who stated this on Sunday night at the National Stadium, Surulere, during the conclusion of the 18-day state-wide crusade held in every part of Lagos State, including Badagry, Epe, Ikorodu and Lekki, among others, under the auspices of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry in conjunction with the Christian Association of Nigerian (CAN) and Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN).
He said: “War against corruption is welcomed because corruption is bad and it is to the disadvantage of the poor people and the entire country.
“Therefore, fighting against corruption is legitimate and right. However, it should be done without witch-hunting but to stamp out corruption itself. Also, those of us fighting the corruption should ensure we lead by example by making sure we are free from corruption.”
Kumuyi seized the opportunity to thank CAN, PFN, the media as well as members of the Deeper Life Bible Church in their different categories for contributing towards the success of the crusade, saying: “We all worked together with strength and unity.”
Addressing the issue of the youths in the country, Kumuyi called on the youths to ensure they be their best and not just something selfish for themselves.
He said: “In one of my messages, I spoke about having purpose, goal and aim which the youths of this great nation should key into.”
The cleric, who gave thanks to God for wading through the 18-day crusade, said: “It is the grace of God that has given me the power to stand and minister throughout the crusade that took place all over Lagos State.
This is the first time we will go through something like this for 18 days, having crusade and travelling from place to place in the state.
“We give the glory to God and appreciate the co-operation of all that were involved.”
