In recent times, Pastor W.F Kumuyi, the esteemed spiritual leader of the Deeper Life Bible Church, has found himself in the midst of public scrutiny, owing to what some interpret as his "declaration of support" for the new administration led by President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Numerous social media posts have critiqued his stance, wherein he stated, "Let's leave the past behind. This marks a new day, and I believe – we all believe – that we are poised to witness new developments for our nation through our President and the members of the cabinet. Positive occurrences will transpire... the Lord Himself will bring about this transformation within their hearts."

Nevertheless, it holds significance to rectify any misconceptions about Pastor Kumuyi's statements and intentions, as Deborah Tolu-Kolawole highlights in a tweet.

Deborah observed that Pastor Kumuyi was merely responding wisely to inquiries from journalists. His intention was not to wish for Nigeria's downfall and destruction. She posed the question, "Would you have preferred Pastor Kumuyi to declare that Nigeria will collapse and be ruined?" She asserts that his response was grounded in wisdom and was also accompanied by prayers for the new administration. She further questioned, "What else should he have said?"

In conclusion, Pastor Kumuyi's approach to the new administration reflects his optimistic perspective. In the face of public criticism, his response stands as a testament to his wisdom and commitment. He unequivocally sought progress for the nation and underscored his faith in a positive transformation under the leadership of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
