Moved by the need to support the spirited efforts of all in fighting the Covid-19 pandemic in the country, one of the most popular churches in the world, Deeper Christian Life Ministry, has donated the sum of N50million to the Federal Government of Nigeria.
Our correspondent gathered that the donation was made recently by the church, as a way of lending support to the Private Sector Coalition Against Covid-19 (CA Covid-19).
In a statement signed by the General Superintendent of the church, Pastor Williams Kumuyi, the revered clergyman, however, noted that the donation was aimed at ameliorating the sufferings occasioned by the scourge.
“The deeper Christian Life Ministry is delighted at and challenged by the massive efforts of the Federal Government and her agencies in curtailing the spread of Covid-19 and bringing relief to sufferers.
“The introduction of the private sector coalition against Covid-19 (CA Covid-19) to harness resources in combatting this global health crisis is also highly commendable.
“We wish to identify with this noble initiative and consequently have made a donation of N50,000,000 (fifty million naira) into your Central Bank account, in support of your campaign.
“We have a firm belief in God that He will answer our prayers and bring an end to the pandemic, sooner than expected. May God bless all your efforts,” Kumuyi said.
Recall that, only recently, the church donated relief materials in food items worth several millions of naira to the Ogunand Lagos State governments, in support of the food bank initiative by the state, in the face of the lockdown.
