2023: Kumuyi Flays Muslim-Muslim Ticket Talks
General Superintendent of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry, Pastor William Kumuyi, has advised Nigerian political leaders to consult widely and conduct research before coming to conclusion on the issue of Muslim-Muslim or Christian-Christian ticket for the 2023 presidential election.
Kumuyi told journalists yesterday in Ilorin after meeting with Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq at Government House, Ilorin, that the presidential flag bearers should look at heartbeat of the country and desires of the people before making their decisions.
He said: “Muslim-Muslim or Christian-Christan ticket is a difficult and slippery area.
“So, what I will say is that the political office holders should look at the heart beat of the country as well as the desires of the people.
“They should know that they are not there for themselves. They are there for all of us. They should ask and make their research about what the country wants; what the people want and we will be confident that they will listen to us when they get there.”
On the prevailing security challenges in the country, the clergyman applauded the security agents for doing their best.
Kumuyi stated that “by the grace of God, I believe that the security agents are doing their best. We can always improve. In every area of life I will say there’s room for improvement.
“I want to credit the officers who are putting their lives on the line to secure the whole country. We should be praying for them that God will give them more wisdom and visible victory in the security of the country.”
The cleric said that his mission in Kwara State was meant to be a blessing under special supernatural deliverance for everyone through Christ, adding that “I’ll be praying for everyone at the end of every ministration for their desires, aspiration and blessings.
“God is our creator, whether we are Muslims or Christians or whatever religion you belong to. We are creatures of God. God is interested in blessing everyone.
“I’m here to be a blessing to everyone. There will be empowerment programme for all youth across religious divides as it is meant to redirect the focus of the youth for positive future endeavours,” he said.
Also speaking, the Kwara State Governor, Mr. Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq, described the empowerment programme of the church as a welcome development, adding that it is in line with the administration’s youth-focused agenda.
The governor, who said that the state government set up a probe panel at the end of the #EndSARS protest, added that one of the recommendations of the panel was to pay more attention to the demands of the youth.
