The General Superintendent of Deeper Christian Life Ministry, Pastor (Dr) William Kumuyi said God has not revealed to him, who will be Nigeria’s next president by 2023, hence he not tell anybody a particular candidate to vote for.
Pastor Kumuyi makes this known on Saturday during an interactive session with journalists in Minna, the Niger State Capital, few hours after he hosted thousands of youths for an Impact Academy at the Trade Fair Complex. The Impact Academy was tagged the Extraordinary Pacesetters.
The Founder of Deeper Life Bible Church, who is also the Convener of Global Crusade, (GCK), has been in for a 6-day Global Crusade, titled, God of All Possibilities.
Speaking on the 2023 General Election, Kumuyi said, “I can’t tell you a lie. God has not shown me anything. He has not found it fit to tell me. He does not tell everybody, everything.”
Drawing inferences from the bible, Pastor Kumuyi noted that God might decide to tell Moses something without telling Joshua.
“God might tell Moses something without telling Joshua. He might tell Joshua something and might not tell Aaron. He might tell Paul without telling Peter,” he said.
He added that he cannot question God over why he has not revealed the country’s next president to him.
“Who are mine to tell God this is my country, why haven’t you told me. When he tells me, I will come and tell you,” Kumuyi told journalists.
He therefore called on the youths to come out on election day and vote for credible candidate who who will take Nigeria to the promise land.
Meanwhile, speaking on the ongoing conflict between the Federal Government of Nigeria and the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU), the man of God called for dialogue to resolve the contending issues.
“I believe that is the way forward. Rioting may not solve the problem. But when two institutions and opposing bodies have a challenge, I should look at the challenge from the point of few of the other person and arrive at a compromise through dialogue.
Kumuyi, therefore cautions that fighting each other may not solve the problem, rather both parties should be ready to pay the price of peace to solve the problem.
Earlier, upon arrival to Minna, Kumuyi had paid a courtesy visit to the Governor of Niger State, Alhaji Abubakar Sani Bello in his office and the former Military Head Of State, Ibrahim Babangida at his Hilltop mansion.
The Global crusade which started last Thursday is expected to end on Tuesday 27th, September 2022.
Reacting to the issue of security, Kumuyi said he is optimistic that God will hear his prayer for lasting peace in the state, Nigeria and Africa.
Governor Bello had earlier appealed to Pastor Kumuyi to pray for the peace and stability in the state.
