While addressing his congregation, narrated how a preacher had instructed his members to give monies meant for offering to the poor and unemployed people around them.

“Then he stood up and said ‘that N10,000, N20,000, and N50,000 go to the poor in your community. All the offering is not just church, there are poor, unemployed people around’.

Kumuyi said DLICC should go back to the old ways of allocating money for charity.

“And what if this church, like we used to do in the olden days, in the good old days that we reserve some amount of money for charity? That we allocate some amount of money for building DLICC, and the district church, and the people we’re building for are dying of hunger, malnutrition, and starvation.
