The renowned clergy and Esther Blaize, his wife, had touched down at the airport in the federal capital territory (FCT) on Wednesday ahead of the crusade.

They thereafter departed the airport in the limousine car to the venue of the event where they were welcomed by officials and members of the ministry.

“I just touched down at Abuja and there is excitement in the air. I am also excited because God has promised to give His children, Divine Solution,” he wrote on Facebook.

“Don’t forget to connect to the program on all my social media handles. I look forward to seeing you at the Divine Solution Crusade. Please, don’t miss it.”

The crusade, titled ‘Divine Solution For All’, is billed to commence on September 24 and end on October 3.

Nathaniel Bassey, Nigerian gospel singer, is among those enlisted to minister at the much-awaited event.

Kumuyi’s choice of a luxurious car has, however, elicited different reactions, with many users sharing contrasting views on Twitter.

Some Twitter users had tackled the cleric for using such vehicle, citing his teachings which they said often focus on modest lifestyle.

But other users argued that there was nothing wrong with his decision to use a luxurious vehicle.

“We can’t call out our Politicians and exonerate our religious leaders. Just saw this footage of Kumuyi pulling up in a Limousine for a crusade…These people are living off poor masses… To even think its these same man that talked down on material things….” a user wrote.

“I just tire… people shy away from reality…religious leaders are not the problem. If at age 18 an individual can brainwash you then the problem is you.. Kumuyi is a successful man… I recently saw his book (defender of faith) sell 4 £14..that kinda man is not poor,” another user wrote.

Here’s what some Nigerians had to say:
