Buhari, Ogunsan, Celebrate Kumuyi at 81


President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated the General Superintendent of Deeper Christian Life Ministry, Pastor William Kumuyi, on the celebration of his 81st birthday on Monday, June 6, 2022.

In a statement by the president’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, Buhari praised the renowned cleric for his dedication to soul winning and preaching the gospel.

The statement read in part, “President Buhari felicitates with the General Superintendent on the auspicious occasion, extolling him for his dedication to soul winning, preaching of the gospel and counseling, which has transformed many lives, and left an indelible mark on the growth of the nation.

“The President notes the contributions of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry, which started as a Bible study group by Pastor Kumuyi, who was then a lecturer, to the spiritual and moral development of the country, with testimonies in education, health, roads, water supply and provision of scholarships to the less privileged.

“President Buhari shares the joy of another age with the octogenarian, his wife, Esther, other family members and friends, while acknowledging the inspiring influence of the many books of the Christian leader, especially the devotionals.

“The President prays that the Almighty God will continue to strengthen Pastor Kumuyi and his family in good health and wisdom.”

Similarly, the Chairman of Executive Group and Member of Board of Trustees, Lagos State Security Trust Fund (LSSTF) and Caleb University, Dr Ayo Ogunsan, praised Kumuyi for leading him on the path of Christ.

Ogunsan said, “Baba (Kumuyi) is more than a spiritual father. He is also my adviser, mentor and leader; a God-sent to me, in actual fact and if I must not mince words. I can jolly well label him as a man with a coat of my colours too dynamic to express in mere words. Words will fail me, still.

“One soon wonders if Baba, at 81, is ever getting older because he is still as agile as a youth. At such age, Baba still tours the length and breadth of Nigeria and the rest of the world for evangelistic outreaches targeted at leading as many sinners to Calvary, through miracle crusades backed by God with numerous testimonies and signs.

“I salute the man of God who led me to God when I was just a wretched sinner without any direction for destiny in life. I am glad that baba was instrumental to the salvation of my soul, on that fateful day, dated November 24, 1990. I dare not forget.

“A pastor, evangelist, author of tens of books and a former lecturer of Mathematics at the University of Lagos; I have always known Pastor Kumuyi as a big dreamer who then makes himself readily available to God for use. Now only a handful of his type exists on earth.

“On behalf of my entire family and the entire management of Executive Group, let me heartily say happy birthday to a highly influential man of global standards, who possesses an unflinching desire for holy living and soul winning. May God continue to enlarge you on every side, daddy. We love you!”
