A clip of the General Overseer of Deeper Life Church, Pastor Williams Kumuyi, saying that Nigeria will be better under President Bola Tinubu’s and his ministers’s leadership has set social media on fire.
Kumuyi commented on Tuesday during a press conference about his church’s monthly Global Crusade program.
“Let’s forget the past. This is a new day, and I believe we all believe that we will see new things for our country through our President and the cabinet members. Good things will happen,” the cleric said.
