Respected cleric and the General Superintendent of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry, Pastor William Folorunsho Kumuyi, has called on Nigerians to stop bothering themselves about the ongoing challenges facing the nation.
He asked them to take their destiny in their hands by seeking God's face for intervention.
Kumuyi gave this charge during a two-day ministerial visit and campus crusade organised by the Campus Christian Mobilisation Committee of the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile Ife, Osun State.
The former university don while preaching to thousands of people at the new religious ground of the the OAU, said, "Nigerians should take their destiny in their hands. People should not be discouraged by whatever problems they are facing now, either as individuals or as a nation".
He noted that there were two different kinds of people in the world, saying while some saw themselves as "grasshoppers", others equally looked themselves as "conquerors".
He said, "There is need to be like the biblical Caleb, who never allowed the towering, scary figure of the giants they saw to dissuade him from entering the land of Canaan. Caleb gave a positive account of what he saw and encouraged others to be optimistic. You are what you think you are."
He prayed for God's wisdom for members of the university in the discharge of their responsibilities.
Also speaking at the event, the Vice-Chancellor of the university, Prof. Bamitale Omole, commended Kumuyi for accepting the invitation to minister on the campus.
He said Kumuyi "is indeed one of the few remaining examples of the ideal Christian faith today".
