Ahead of the 2023 general election, the General Superintendent of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry, Pastor William Kumuyi, has said Nigeria needs God-fearing leaders at this time in history to change her fortunes.
Kumuyi stated this while speaking to newsmen at the Port Harcourt International Airport, shortly after his arrival at the Rivers State capital for a schedule ‘Power for the Present Hour crusade.’
He was received at the airport by members of the church, corps members, students of Deeper Life Secondary School, as well as members of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria.
Asked if it was all right for Christians to actively participate in partisan politics, the preacher said irrespective of religion, godly people should take over the mantle of leadership.
“Not just Christians, everyone called of God whether Christians or Muslims or whoever, as they are called of God, they should respond to the call of God, so that our country will move forward,” he stated.
Kumuyi also stated that the retreat in Port Harcourt, which begins on Thursday, April 14 through April 18, 2022, would be power-packed, themed ‘Come and Receive Power for the Present Hour.’
“As you know we are here at this time for a retreat. It is a time of gathering together and this time is Power for the Present Hour.
“And I pray that all the power we need in our family, our personal lives, profession and everywhere the Lord will grant us at this hour.
“I pray for you and for everyone that this will be the hour for your power, and the power for your hour. People should expect the power to see them through this year and the rest of their lives. Family problems, personal problems, everything will be solved in Jesus Name,” said Kumuyi.
Also speaking, the Rivers State Chairman of PFN, Rev Minaibi Dagogo-Jack, maintained that it was very good that Christians must get involved in politics because the people will only rejoice when the righteous rules.
