General Superintendent of the Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor William Folorunso Kumuyi, has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to remain focus, be courageous to continue to do the right things, assuring him that his flocks are praying for him.
He reminded the President, when he paid him a courtesy visit at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, today that not everybody would support him public.
“Please remain focused and courageous and do what is right. Not everyone will support you publicly, but we are praying for you so that your tenure will be one of progress and prosperity for the country.”
The General Superintendent who was accompanied to the Villa by his wife, Esther, Pastor Samuel Afuwape, Pastor Chike Onwuasoanya and Pastor Seyin Malomo, the Chaplain of Aso Villa Chapel, said that it was an honour to be received by the President on a busy day as October 1.
This was even as the President said that God did not make a mistake when he created over 250 different ethnic groups, and decided to put them in a place called Nigeria, saying that Nigerians must appreciate God for bringing everyone together.
“We must appreciate God for bringing us together. He knows what he was doing. He didn’t make a mistake.”
Buhari, who described Nigeria as a great country endowed with human and natural resources, admitted: “we have challenges in trying to get people to understand us.
“With my experience as a governor, Minister of Petroleum, Head of State, Chairman of Petroleum Trust Fund, I thought I had seen it all, but Nigeria has a way of going at its own speed.
“My morale is raised by your visit. I very much appreciate it.”
President Buhari recalled what he described as Pastor Kumuyi’s intellectual achievements, as a scholar and university lecturer before going into full time ministry, adding that he was excited a great deal for the General Superintendent’s acceptance of government’s invitation to preach the sermon at the country’s 58th independence anniversary.
