God ‘ll give Buhari solution to Nigeria’s problem in 2017- Kumuyi




The General Superintendent of the Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor William Kumuyi, on Sunday said that in 2017, God would grant President Muhammad Buhari the solution to the numerous challenges facing the country.

Kumuyi gave the assurance while speaking with newsmen when he played host to the Speaker, Lagos State House of Assembly, Mr Mudashiru Obasa, who led some members of the Assembly on courtesy visit to the church’s December Convention.

The cleric said, “We talk of the hours of recession, difficulty, distress and all that, but God is granting us His promises. We are not going to carry over our problems. “We pray and believe that the Lord will answer.

“As you will see, as we get to the New Year, there is no carryover of our problems. God will give solutions to the problems of our lives, families, communities, the state and our nation.”

The pastor said that with prayer and faith in God, the country would get out of all its challenges, including the economic recession.

The founder of the church said that God created ‘’us and wants everything to be sufficient for everybody.’’

Meanwhile, addressing the congregation of thousands of worshippers, Obasa, urged all Christians to show love to their neighbours, adding that the state was committed to fight unemployment among the youth.

He said that the newly created Employment Trust Fund would help reduce joblessness by providing soft loan with little interest for enterprising people of Lagos state.

“We must go beyond religious demarcation and show ourselves that we are brothers and sisters. Let us love one another. We should extend hands of fellowship to our neighbours,” the speaker said.

Obasa, who urged churches to pray for the state and nation, said that the state was passionate to give good governance and improve the economy of the state for the benefit of all.

He expressed delight over the warmth reception accorded his team by the leadership of the church.

NAN reports that the speaker the Deputy Majority Leader of the House, Mr Muyiwa Jimoh and the Chairman, House Committee on Environment, Mr Dayo Saka-Fafunmi were among the team.

Mrs Funmilayo Tejuosho, the Chairman, House Committee on Judiciary, Human Rights, Petitions and Lagos State Independent Electoral Commission among others government functionaries also made the list.

NAN reports that the four-day, nation-wide convention, which started on Dec. 23 and expected to end on Dec. 26, is tagged, “Power for the Present Hour”.

It is taking place at the Deeper Life Conference Centre (DLCC) KM 42, Lagos/Ibadan Expressway.

    Sir, you are a true man of God, unlike the political pastors seeking political thieves to come pay ten percent of stolen public funds.

    Amen, yes prayers can move
    mountains. With Russia reductions of its daily oil supplies, prices of oil per barrels has gone up. Hopefully it will help Nigeria to overcome current economic problems. Probably the pastor focast for 2017, may be based on this assumptions. But the most important thing is for Mr. Buhari, to be good manager.

    Another generalistic and irrelevant prediction.

      This was exactly the same comment a man made in the Bible to which Elisha replied that he was going to see it but was never going to partake in or enjoy the abundance. (2 Kings 7)
      But for you, I pray you will not only see it but you will partake of it fully and enjoy the overflowing abundance.
      Nevertheless, believing doesn’t cost a thing.
      Blessed are they that haven’t seen it, yet have believed!

        “The function of prayer is not to influence God, but rather to change the nature of the one who prays.”
        ― Søren Kierkegaard. When our political class starts to change their nature, then their prayers for a better Nigeria will start becoming a reality. Until then, always remember that prayer without deliberate action is nothing but superstition.

    This is pastor true talk, unlike other embracing disrespect governor. Pastors need to give hedge comments or seek for prayer for who so ever in need.
