The General Superintendent of the Deeper Life Bible Church, William Kumuyi, has arrived in Yola, the capital of Adamawa State, for a campaign warning Nigerians against political attitudes in the run-up to the 2023 general elections.
He told reporters at Yola International Airport on Wednesday that choosing leaders with the credibility and capacity to achieve progress, rather than the party or religion that the politicians espouse, will make Nigeria a genuinely great country.
Kumuyi, who arrived in Yola on Thursday for the global crusade, urged against voting for sentimental reasons.
He said: “Those eligible to vote should look at the people asking for vote and examine what we know about them. We are not voting by sentiment, we are not voting because of religion. We are voting for people who we believe that as individuals will make our country great.”
Kumuyi who said Nigeria is a huge country that could be made to fully justify its numerical strength in other ways than just numbers added: “We are still the giant in Africa by population, but we need to be giant in every area and so we want to vote for people who can get us there.”
The Deeper Life Bible Church’s spiritual leader is in Yola for a six-day ‘Global Crusade with Kumuyi (GCK)’, expected to draw over 70,000 people from Adamawa State and beyond.
The crusade is slated for Thursday 24th to Tuesday 29th, November, at a venue owned by the Church, the Deeper Unity Camp Ground in Kwanan Waya, near Yola.
The six-day crusade comes under the theme, “The Power That Never Fails” and seeks to draw attendance from not only the Deeper Life Bible Church but people from other denominations and faiths.
