President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday met with the General Superintendent of the Deeper Life Bible Church Worldwide, Pastor Williams Kumuyi.
The meeting held at the State House in Abuja.
Buhari said Kumuyi’s visit has raised his morale concerning Nigeria.
According to Buhari, God did not make a mistake when he created over 250 different ethnic groups and decided to put them in a place called Nigeria.
He said: “I was very pleased to welcome Pastor W. F. Kumuyi, founder and General Superintendent of the Deeper Life Bible Church, and his wife, to the State House today.”
“We must appreciate God for bringing us together. He knows what he was doing. He didn’t make a mistake.
“We have challenges in trying to get people to understand us.
“With my experience as a governor, Minister of Petroleum, Head of State, Chairman of Petroleum Trust Fund, I thought I had seen it all, but Nigeria has a way of going at its own speed.
“My morale is raised by your visit. I very much appreciate it.’’
President Buhari recalled what he described as Pastor Kumuyi’s “intellectual achievements’’ as a scholar and university lecturer before going into full time ministry.
He added that he was “excited a great deal’’ for the General Superintendent’s acceptance of government’s invitation to preach the sermon at the country’s 58th independence anniversary.
