Nigeria’ll come out of recession, says Pastor Kumuyi

General Overseer of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry Pastor William Kumuyi yesterday said Nigeria would come out of recession.

   He kicked against the notion of the Islamisation of Nigeria, saying nobody can impose any religion on anyone in the country today.
Pastor Kumuyi, who is in Calabar for a crusade, said: “The information is now made public and official that this is the worst recession situation in Nigeria in the last 29 years. Well, as it affects the church, it also affects everyone. But there are things we still do in spite of the economy. Money is just a servant to man, and it is not supposed to be the master. There are things we keep doing even when the money is not there. I believe that we will come out of this recession.

“I would not be able to pinpoint one particular place where we got it wrong. Different situations brought us to this climax. So, we must have got it wrong somewhere but I cannot pin it to one.”

On islamisation, he said: “I think it depends on the will of the people. You cannot impose a religion on a country without the will of the people. Worshiping God is a personal thing. If I chose my way so will it be. If a country is said to be going through a process, if the people are asleep and they do not have any conviction, then it becomes easy for another person to impose what he feels he has on you. But the will of the people will not be easily overruled.”

On the alleged killing of Christians in the North, he said: “When we say alleged killing we will need to investigate well. Neither of the two dominant religions in Nigeria, Christianity and Islam, advocate the killing of neighbours. The love of our neighbour is key here and the Islamic religion came in through Abraham, so basically we are having the same great grand-grandparent. So, we should rethink and understand that it would be good to allow people to live together in peace and allow them to have their free will to choose how to worship.

“I am here basically to show the love of God to the people. We are saying that because God Almighty is still on the throne, we should not lose hope despite the hiccups in personal lives, family lives and the state of the nation.”
