Nigeria can only be delivered by leader with good intention – Kumuyi



Pastor William Kumuyi

The General Superintendent of Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor William Kumuyi, says it takes a person with good intentions, backed up with effective action, to deliver the country from the present economic challenges.


The Convener of the Global Crusade with Kumuyi (GCK), made the assertion while addressing a news conference on Wednesday at Ogbomoso, Oyo State, to flag-off the July 2023 Global Crusade with Kumuyi.


He said that throughout history, nations and communities that faced severe economic crisis, rebounded as a result of an individual with drive and determination to turn things around.

The GCK convener said it took a person with purpose and great ideas, put into action, to achieve positive results that alleviate the sufferings of the people.

Kumuyi called on Nigerians not to lose hope with the present situation in the country, assuring them of greater possibilities ahead, if only they could pray, plan, and pursue their endeavours in order to make a difference in the nation.

He appealed to youths not to be intimidated by the current economic challenges and urged them to wake up and pursue their goals with determination and diligence.

“”Don’t let anyone tell you that we are down.

“Look at the economy, look at petrol, prices are going up higher and higher; no it takes you to wake up and with faith in God; we can do something,” he said.

On what motivated him to hold the global crusade in Ogbomoso, Kumuyi said it was based on his passion and determination to make a difference in the lives of the people, using Ogbomoso as a platform to reach out to the over 180 countries, where the GCK covered.

Kumuyi enjoined the people of Ogbomoso, including the youth to turn out en masse for the crusade, which included the Impact Programme for the youth and the Ministers Conference, as great possibilities awaits them.

Real Madrid’s goalkeeper shares recovery insights after two injuries



Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has opened up about his recovery journey following two serious knee injuries.


Courtois said, “In August, I cried because the worst thing that can happen to you in football is a cruciate ligament injury. When I returned home, I said that I was going to work hard and come back stronger. That was my idea from the beginning: to stay positive, fight, never give up, and push my limits.


“Many thought my season was over, but I knew it wasn’t,” Courtois told Marca.

Recall that for most of the current season, Courtois missed out due to two injuries: a cruciate ligament tear and a meniscus injury. In his absence, first-choice goalkeeper was Chelsea’s loanee Kepa Arrizabalaga, and later, he faced competition from Andriy Lunin.

Upon his return, Courtois played in 3 La Liga matches, keeping clean sheets in all of them. In the last game against Alaves, the Belgian made 10 saves.

Earlier, it was reported that Courtois’ recovery from injury will be featured in a documentary series.
