With the economic pressures piling up everyday, it is indeed a thing of joy when someone comes up with a “valid” plan to escape the hardship.
Newest on the lists is General Overseer of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry, DCLM, Pastor Williams Kumuyi, who has disclosed how the country can surmount the current economic downturn in the country, stressing that Nigerians should shun corruption, get accustomed to doing the right thing always and also delve into agriculture to ensure food availability and security.
The holiness preacher was however quick to point out that these should be done aside praying for God’s intervention in the affairs of the country.
He said Nigerians need God’s help to “turn around the economic, social, individual, domestic needs and other hydra – headed problems of the nation,” adding that where there is no food on the table and enough apparel for the body, there would be grumbling everywhere.
The General Overseer spoke in Abeokuta, Ogun State, through the DCLM State Overseer, Pastor Dele Rosilu, while fielding questions from reporters at a press briefing to herald his planned visit to MKO Abiola Stadium, Abeokuta, next Friday, for a “turn around” crusade at the state capital.
Rosilu, who addressed journalists on Kumuyi’s behalf, noted that Nigerians are not doing enough in agriculture, insisting that there is no better time to devote more energy to farming either on “commercial or part time basis” than this period of economic recession.
He also made case for more money to be expended on security of lives and properties of Nigerians by the governments if that is what it would take to keep enough manpower on ground amid rising cases of militancy and kidnappings in parts of the country.
Kumuyi, however, expressed the hope that at this period of “failures,” God would minister success to the country, stressing that the church in Nigeria should partner with the governments, its institutions and agencies to better the lot of the people.”
