Kumuyi urges youths to wake up amid soaring food, fuel prices

General Superintendent of Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor William Kumuyi, has called on the youths to wake up and do something ‘with faith in God’ as the nation battles with worsening hardship.

The revered clergyman said it takes a person with good intentions and effective action to deliver Nigeria from the present economic challenges.

He made the assertion while addressing a news conference on Wednesday to flag off the Global Crusade with Kumuyi (GCK) in Ogbomoso, Oyo state, adding that that though the prices of petrol and food are increasing, Nigerians are not down.

Kumuyi explained that throughout history, nations and communities that faced severe economic crises rebounded due to an individual with the drive and determination to turn things around.

According to the pastor, it took a person with purpose and great ideas put into action to achieve positive results that alleviate the people’s sufferings.

He called on Nigerians not to lose hope with the present situation in the country, assuring them of greater possibilities if only they could pray, plan, and pursue their endeavours to make a difference in the nation.

Kumuyi further appealed to youths not to be intimidated by the current economic problems facing the nation and urged them to pursue their goals with determination and diligence.

“Don’t let anyone tell you that we are down. Look at the economy, look at petrol, prices are going up higher and higher; no, it takes you to wake up, and with faith in God, we can do something,” he said.

Speaking on the motivation behind holding the global crusade in Ogbomoso, Kumuyi said it was based on his passion and determination to make a difference in the lives of the people, using Ogbomoso as a platform to reach out to the over 180 countries the GCK covered.
