Pastor William Kumuyi, the general superintendent of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry, said for things to change in the country, there was a need for attitudinal change.
He said the change would begin with a step at a time and with a clear focus on where Nigeria is heading, Vanguard reports.
Speaking at a special Sunday service at the church’s International Bible Training Centre, Ayobo, a suburb of Lagos, the man of God expressed hope that current harsh economic situation would soon be over.
He said Nigerians needed hope to make progress and that once there is hope and focus, the nation would get to its desired destination
Reminded that Nigerians have not heard his voice on the spate of killing of Christians in the north, Pastor Kumuyi said: “Well I don’t know where those people are living that you said have not heard my voice. I just came back from FCT, from Benue, from Niger, from Kogi, from Nasarawa, from Plateau, from Adamawa, from Gombe, from Bauchi, from Taraba, and I’m on my way to Kaduna now.
“And thousands of people gather together. I met with governors and deputy governors and executives; we spoke about things, mapping out ways forward. So I don’t know where those people are living that they have not heard my voice. Those who want to hear are hearing and you are hearing too.”
He therefore, called on Christians to shun all forms of covetousness, fornication, idolatry, among others and embrace righteousness and holiness of heart.
Also speaking, Governor Emmanuel Udom of Akwa Ibom state expressed hope that the nation would soon get over its present economic hardship.
He said there must be a wilderness before the Promised Land.
According to him, the prayers of Christian leaders and their followers was sustaining Nigeria despite the challenges.
“I think the current economic situation calls for a rethink so that we can now walk the talk of diversification of our economy,” he said.
On corruption, Udom said Nigerians must correct the notion that all those in government were corrupt.
He stressed that if corruption must be tackled in the nation, it must begin from individuals through attitudinal change.
