At a briefing, Tuesday night, after the Faith Revival Conference organised by the North-Central zone of the church, Pastor Kumuyi argued that the nation’s problem required dialogue.
He said: “Now in a whole country, we know that the problems are there. How do we solve the problems? Nobody just rises up to say he wants to destroy property and lives. There must be something that is the grievances of the people and then if there is an attack somewhere why the attack?
“It is when we begin to talk that we will know why the attack and where it is coming from, and it is then we might see that we are fighting over nothing and if at all we are fighting on something we may then realise that this approach is not going to give us what we are fighting for.”
