Pastor Kumuyi Reacts To Buhari’s Twitter Ban. Pastor William Kumuyi, General Overseer of the Deeper Christian Life Ministries, has reacted to the ban of Twitter by the Federal Government of Nigeria.
The standoff between the Nigerian government and twitter seems to be at the peak.
As the National Broadcasting Commission (NBC), ordered all broadcasting stations in Nigeria to suspend the use of Twitter.
This was contained in a statement issued by its Director General, Armstrong Idachaba, on Monday morning.
Mr Idachaba said television and radio stations are advised to de-install twitter handles and “desist from using twitter as a source (UGC) of information gathering for News and programmes presentation especially Phone-in.”
Reacting to the standoff, Pastor Kumuyi took to his social media handle to state that content won’t stop being posted on the handle as it targets a global audience.
“In view of the Twitter ban in Nigeria, please note that the content shared on this handle is targeted at a global audience in more than 5 continents and over 100 Nations and we share the content from any of these locations”.
The Deeper Christian Life Ministry founded by Kumuyi has the international headquarters of its church in Gbagada, Lagos.
The church auditorium at the international headquarters could sit up to 30,000 worshippers; it was described by experts as the fourth largest in the world.
The auditorium was inaugurated on the 24th of April, 2018; the Vice President of Nigeria, Yemi Osinbajo, attended the inauguration.
Other notable places of worship of his Christian ministry include: the Deeper Life Conference Centre in Ogun State at Kilometre 42, Lagos–Ibadan Expressway and the International Bible Training Centre (IBTC) at Ayobo, Lagos
