The General Superintendent of the Deeper Life Bible
Church, Pastor William Kumuyi, has said Nigerians
should not panic because of the current socio-
economic and security challenges.
The popular cleric said the nation would soon
overcome them and become better.
The cleric urged the Federal Government to
dialogue with Niger Delta stakeholders to end
renewed militancy in the region.
He said all hands must be on the deck to work for
Nigeria’s progress and fight against its division.
The preacher noted that the need for the nation’s
restructuring should not lead to its division.
Patror Kumuyi said : “We should not worry
ourselves too much on the issue. We
should rather think of how we can move
the country forward because too much
talk about restructuring does not mean
Nigeria will break up.
“The solution is that we should begin to
dialogue. Stakeholders should reason
together and see the way forward, instead
of accusing one another. What we are
interested in is how to solve the problem.
What are the expectations of both sides
so that we can move forward?”
He said comments by Nigerians on the economic
situation were normal, adding that they were
indications that the country deserved better than
the realities on the ground.
“The reason people are commenting is
because Nigeria deserves to be better.
The economy has been low, but we are
getting out of it. With prayers, I know we
will get better,” Pastor Kumuyi said.

Meanwhile, the federal government has ordered
immediate withdrawal of military from the Niger
Delta communities. This was arrived at a meeting
summoned on the instruction of President
Muhammadu Buhari, the federal government and
Niger Delta states .
