The Deeper Life Bible Ministry said yesterday that it had so far expended about N7.6 million on Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in Adamawa. The Overseer of the church in Adamawa, Pastor Adeniyi Hassan, made this known in Yola at a news briefing.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the briefing was part of activities lined up for the July 14 visit of the General Overseer and Founder of the ministry, Pastor Williams Kumuyi, to the state.
Hassan said the church was concerned about the plight of the people affected by the insurgency and would continue to do its best to assist them. Kumuyi, he said, would be visiting Adamawa to strengthen the church and identify with the people of the state over the challenges facing them.
“He (Kumuyi) called and expressed his passion to visit Adamawa state to strengthen the church as well as identify with the people and the government on our plight. “He felt the need to come and encourage, impact on the people of Adamawa to be strong and stand so that with his prayers, he believes God can bring solution to the situation in the land,’’ he said.
The state overseer said that Kumuyi would preach in Yola, Numan and Mayo-Belwa towns. Hassan said that on arrival in Yola, Kumuyi would hold a special gathering of church members and the people of Adamawa, irrespective of religion. He said the programme entitled, “It is Now Time for Total Recovery and Restoration,’’ would impact positively on the state. Hassan urged all stakeholders, including the media, to support the event to ensure it was a success. (NAN)
