The General Overseer of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry, Pastor William Kumuyi has called on God-fearing men, whether Christians or Muslims, to get involved in politics and governance of the country.
According to Kumuyi, Nigeria needs God-fearing leaders at this time in history to change her fortunes.
Kumuyi stated this while speaking to newsmen at the Port Harcourt International Airport, shortly after his arrival at the Rivers State capital for a schedule ‘Power for the Present Hour crusade.’
Responding to a question on if it was all right for Christians to actively participate in partisan politics, Kumuyi said irrespective of religion, godly people should take over the mantle of leadership.
He said: “Not just Christians, everyone called of God, whether Christians or Muslims or whoever, as they are called of God, they should respond to the call of God, so that our country will move forward,” he stated.
Also speaking, the Rivers State Chairman of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), Rev Minaibi Dagogo-Jack, maintained that it was very good that Christians get involved in politics because the people will only rejoice when the righteous rules.
