Legit.ng had reported how Adesina on Thursday, April 29, pointed to Pastor Kumuyi as one Christian cleric citizens should emulate.

The presidential aide said Nigerians rarely hear his voice in public when it comes to secular or controversial issues.

Directing Nigerians' attention to a message by the cleric, Adesina noted that stereotyping, stigmatisation, and pointing accusing fingers at specific ethnic groups are actually parts of the problem, not the solution.

Are you ready for the rapture?

Kumuyi on his Twitter page on Sunday, November 22, warned people around the world that the rapture of true saints is at hand.

The man of God asked if people were ready for the rapture and Nigerians took to the comment section to share diverse opinions.

While some said a good number of people will not make it, others were of the opinion that they still like it here on earth, adding that others can go with the rapture.
