Mixed reactions as Pastor Kumuyi arrives Abuja event in limousine car

By Our Correspondent

Pastor W F Kumuyi, General superintendent of the Deeper Christian Life Ministry, has become the subject of a heated debate on social media after he arrived an Abuja crusade venue in a sleek platinum limousine car worth millions of naira.

The renowned clergy and Esther Blaize, his wife, had touched down at the airport in the federal capital territory (FCT) on Wednesday ahead of the crusade.

They thereafter departed the airport in the limousine car to the venue of the event where they were welcomed by officials and members of the ministry.

“I just touched down at Abuja and there is excitement in the air. I am also excited because God has promised to give His children, Divine Solution,” he wrote on Facebook.

“Don’t forget to connect to the program on all my social media handles. I look forward to seeing you at the Divine Solution Crusade. Please, don’t miss it.”

The crusade, titled ‘Divine Solution For All’, is billed to commence on September 24 and end on October 3.

Nathaniel Bassey, Nigerian gospel singer, is among those enlisted to minister at the much-awaited event.

Kumuyi’s choice of a luxurious car has, however, elicited different reactions, with many users sharing contrasting views on Twitter.

Some Twitter users had tackled the cleric for using such vehicle, citing his teachings which they said often focus on modest lifestyle.

But other users argued that there was nothing wrong with his decision to use a luxurious vehicle.

“We can’t call out our Politicians and exonerate our religious leaders. Just saw this footage of Kumuyi pulling up in a Limousine for a crusade…These people are living off poor masses… To even think its these same man that talked down on material things….” a user wrote.

“I just tire… people shy away from reality…religious leaders are not the problem. If at age 18 an individual can brainwash you then the problem is you.. Kumuyi is a successful man… I recently saw his book (defender of faith) sell 4 £14..that kinda man is not poor,” another user wrote.

Here’s what some Nigerians had to say:

That person stepping down from a Limousine looks so much like Pastor WF Kúmúyì.

Iam sure that's not him!

Let's laugh at those who think even Television Sets are serious sins and Devil Boxes…

Pastor Kumuyi steps off a plane, picked up with a limo and driven a great distance less than the yards between his two eyes.

Ihave zero problem with Pastor Kumuyi riding and flying in anything he cares, that is between him and his church people, not my wahala. But I am amazed at the number of gbeboruns, routinely sodomized by the ruining crass with nary a bleat, cackling as hens..#Enikure! 😏🙄

Aconman like Kumuyi, who is a religious extension of the Nigerian ruling class, has stripped himself of all bourgeois pretence and hypocrisy- he has thrown his gullible church members who uncritically took his ultra-conservative doctrines seriously, under the bus. https://t.co/MhJBufQ8n0

Me: He wants to pray so that Nigeria will remain for his Church business to flourish. Business of Limo and private jet. pic.twitter.com/N39qoZTNCu

Iam not his fan or any of the so called religious leader but Kumuyi did not tell his congregation never to watch Tv, he said he doesn't watch television and the people in their overzealousness took it upon themselves as a message for them not to watch Tv https://t.co/fLJRHt6Jzu

Seeing that car Pastor Kumuyi got out from, there’s nothing anyone wants to say again that will justify those old beliefs. He got out from a freaking Limousine … Omooo
