Aba—General Superintendent, GS, Deeper Christian Life Ministry, DCLM, Pastor Williams Kumuyi has described President Muhammadu Buhari’s fight against corruption as a step in the right direction which should be supported by all Nigerians.
In a chat with journalists, Kumuyi who was in Aba, Abia state on Sunday for a unique combined worship service of the church at the Abia State Polytechnic playground, said “I am a layman when it comes to politics. But from what we can see, I believe that the President is in the right direction and if we support him with our comments and in other ways, I believe that we will see corruption brought down very quickly.”
He stated that the Church can help the President in the fight against corruption by teaching members to shun evil conducts and contribute positively to the progress of the country.
“When we say the church, we are not just talking about buildings; we are talking of people who come to church and also go to offices. For the church to support the fight against corruption, preachers must teach our people to learn how to contribute positively to the progress of the country wherever they are .If you are a governor, commissioner, teacher, minister and among others; do your best for the country. Don’t think of what you can get out of the place that you are working, but how they can contribute to the place in order to support the efforts of the government.”
The cleric advised political office holders to lead with the fear of God and always remember to fulfill their campaign promises, insisting that they must see themselves as servants of the people who elected them into office.
Earlier in his sermon which centred on ‘The Riches of Christ’s Supernatural Love”, Kumuyi described God’s love for man as inexhaustible and beyond the imagination and understanding of man, adding that it was because of God’s love for man that made Him to send His only begotten son to die to redeem and reconcile man back to God.
According to him, “God is on a rescue mission and is ready to reach out to the deepest part of the earth to rescue anyone who wants to turn a new leaf. The reason why I’m in Abia state is that Abia is Gods Own State; I will like to plant in a place where the seed will germinate.”
Highlights of the cleric’s visit at the program titled; “Open for Extra-Ordinary Blessings”, was a special prayer session for the sick, church, Abia State and the entire country.
