A renowned preacher and the General Superintendent of Deeper Life Christian Church, Pastor William Kumuyi, has declared that the wealth hidden in the land of Ebonyi State would henceforth flow out for the economic well-being of the people.
Kumuyi, who was in Abakaliki for a one-day Bible Study/ prayer programme organised by the church, on Monday described Ebonyi as a state bestowed with abundant natural resources.
He admonished the people of the state to refrain from sin in order to overcome their economic challenges as it is only through this way that the blessings of God will be made manifest to them.
The cleric, according to a statement by Umahi's Chief Press Secretary, Emma Anya, offered special prayers for the governor and his family, the state Executive Council members and the entire state.
Earlier, Governor Umahi had described Kumuyi's visit as a huge blessing to the people of the state.
He said, "By your coming here sir, our suffering has ended. I thank God Almighty who brought you at a time we needed you most.
"We don't have much to say but we want you to know that we are very expectant. We have faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible tells us that when God calls a man, he enables him. And we are confident that you are going to bring huge blessing to each and every one of us.
"I know that our state is going to be richly blessed through you."
The event was attended also by the wife of the governor, Rachel Umahi; Deputy Governor Kelechi Igwe; Speaker of the State House of Assembly, Francis Nwifuru; members of the State Executive Council and other top government functionaries.
