Muslim-Muslic Ticket: Deeper Life React To Kumuyi’s Comment, Make Clarifications
Deeper Christian Life Ministry, DCLM, has reacted to the comment of its General Superintendent, Pastor William Kumuyi, on the Muslim-Muslim ticket during a recent media chat in Ilorin.
In a statement made available to newsmen in Uyo, the church stated that the clergyman comment was not aimed at attacking any personality in the country.
DCLM stated that some sections of the media misrepresented the message of Kumuyi.
They insisted that Kumuyi was more concerned for a better Nigeria and during his chat with newsmen had appealed that all parties take interest of Nigerians into consideration while making their choices.
The statement reads: ”Deeper Christian Life Ministry is aware of a news story on Muslim-Muslim ticket making the rounds and attributed to the General Superintendent of the church, Pastor William Kumuyi.
“For the sake of the public and need to clear the misrepresentation the story may have caused, the church considers it important to make clarifications.
“On Wednesday, June 22, at Ilorin, Pastor Kumuy had paid a courtesy call on Governor Abdulrahman Abdulrazaq of Kwara State after which he had a chat with newsmen.
“During the chat, Pastor Kumuyi appealed to all parties to take interest of Nigerians into consideration while making their choices in representing the people, adding that ,“The Muslim-Muslim or Christian-Christian ticket’ is a difficult and slippery area.
“The pastor’s statement was not a political commentary aimed at attacking any personality in the country as wrongly portrayed and misrepresented by a section of the media.
“His admonition on the subject matter underscores his sincere concern for a better Nigeria and prayer for God’s guidance on the leadership of this country
“We, therefore, urge members of the public to be wary of such misrepresentation. As usual, Pastor Kumuyi calls on Nigerians to continue praying for the country and the manifestation of God’s will in Nigeria.”
