COVID-19 is real, not politically motivated, says Pastor Kumuyi


The General Superintendent of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry, Pastor William Kumuyi, has said the COVID-19 pandemic is not politically motivated but real.


Kumuyi spoke on Tuesday while fielding questions from journalists during a briefing to mark the commencement of the church’s six-day global crusade.


The crusade, tagged, ‘The Great Miracle Explosion,’ would be held at the Deeper Life Conference Centre, Km 42, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Ogun State.


The revered cleric, who spoke at the crusade venue, said from his observation, the pandemic was real and not politically arranged as speculated in some quarters.


He said, “Concerning COVID-19, I want to say that from my observations, from looking at things, I know that COVID-19 is real; it is not fake, it is not a politically arranged thing to do whatever. It’s real.


“We’ve had people who had real COVID-19 situations and they were in isolation. In fact, one of our men, one of our pastors was about to pass away. According to him, he had said his last prayer because in that isolation he had seen other people dying, just going like that.


“I knew about it and I called him on the phone and prayed with him. Within, I would say, one hour, he was completely healed. He went to the toilet, got up by himself, came by himself and the Lord brought him back to life.”


According to him, though the pandemic is real, God has a solution to every problem.


The preacher said COVID-19 would not surprise those who knew their Bible well, as Jesus Christ had foretold that there would be pestilence (pandemic) in the last days.


He said the crusade would address national and personal problems, adding that the Lord would free everyone with problems.


The crusade, which would be transmitted live on the church’s social media platforms, had been held in Abuja, Enugu, Rivers and Akwa Ibom states.


“We are now in Lagos. It is a great miracle explosion. When we put all that has been happening this year together, we are going to have great explosions. People will be blessed, people will say this is a great thing that has happened in their lives,” he said.


On how the crusade would impact the nation, Kumuyi said when individuals are touched, the nation will change for the better.
