Kumuyi spoke while addressing reporters at the Akanu Ibiam International Airport, Enugu, shortly after he arrived for a six-day crusade beginning from today in the state, stating that Nigerians must turn away from negative attitudes and show love to one another for God to intervene in security challenges.
The cleric, who was accompanied by his wife, Esther, and several other leaders of the church, also insisted that the church must continue to seek the face of God since all efforts so far have almost failed to solve Nigeria’s problems.
He said: “The solution to the insecurity is for us to understand that God lives in us; created us and that every community, state and the whole country should return to God. We should know that God is able to do all things and we turn away from our negative way that is injuring us, as they are sometimes destructive. When we turn away from them, love God, love ourselves and everyone around us, I believe we will find a solution to our problems. You can see there are all manner of problems in the country, but we are asking our people to continue in prayers for the intervention of God to all these problems facing us today.”
Kumuyi stated that the six-day Global Gospel Campaign with the theme, “Divine Touch for Total Freedom”, would portray the love of God for the people of the state and Nigeria, adding that it would be a time of prayer for healing on the land.
Also speaking, the Enugu State Overseer, Pastor Godson Ezenwajiofor, explained that the church would not keep quiet in the face of challenges facing the country, stressing that the crusade would be used to preach hope and deepen the knowledge of God.
He said that the Popular American Gospel Singer, Don Moen, would be ministering in songs along with Deeper Life Choirs from different countries of the world to bless the South-East and indeed the world.
He maintained that the church would play her role in solving insecurity challenges in the country and across the world, urging Nigerians to pray more and trust God for intervention to tackle rising insecurity in the country.
