The highly revered Nigerian pastor, W.F. Kumuyi of the Deeper Life Bible Church, has paid a visit to the Vice President of Nigeria, Yemi Osinbajo.
Pastor W.F. Kumuyi and his wife paid paid a visit to the Vice President on Friday, June 24.
The popular pastor who is the General Superintendent of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry, led a delegation from the Ministry for the courtesy visit at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
During the meeting, Osinbajo said that Nigeria currently needs President Muhammadu Buhari at the helm of affairs as a honest, straightforward and with a genuine heart.
Even as some people have noted that President Buhari is strict because of his forthrightness, he said he is the kind of leader the country needs now.
He stressed that he is a president who will not cut deals and who is only interested in moving Nigeria forward.
In a statement by the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Laolu Akande, Osinbajo said: “We are very happy that we have a President who is honest, a President who is straight forward, a President who is operating from the genuineness of his heart, this is the kind of leader that we need now,”
He also said that he has worked together very well with the President.
Acknowledging the current economic situation in the country, the Vice President said that the current administration did not create the problems.
He said: “The reason (we are here at this time,) is known to the Lord Himself. Everyday I wake up knowing there is a cause for being here and it is to move the country forward.”
Osinbajo told Pastor William Kumuyi that the clean-up of Ogoni and the Niger Delta is very important.
He said: “The situation is very bad, I have been in the area a few times, but we need peace in the area to be able to carry on with the clean-up exercise.”
He also said the clean-up exercise will take decades but with the phased implementation people can gradually return to fishing and farming.
On the power sector, he noted that by February this year, the country was doing 5000MW of electricity for the first time in history, and that the militants’ attacks on the pipelines have made things bad not only regarding electricity, but also cutting the oil revenues of the nation.
He however assured that government is working diligently on effective solutions to those challenges. He was clear that God has a purpose for choosing the President and himself to serve at this time, saying “this is the doing of the Lord.”
The Vice President thanked Pastor Kumuyi for coming, noting that “your visit is a wonderful gift.”
Earlier, Pastor Kumuyi said he is in the Federal Capital Territory for a crusade and thought to pay a visit to the Vice President.
He thanked God for the progress made so far by the Administration, adding that “God will fulfill the purpose for which He brought you at a time like this.”
While inviting the Vice President to the crusade, Pastor Kumuyi pledged his contributions and prayers for the Buhari administration, and also for the progress of the country.
