Nollywood actor, Williams Uchemba, has revealed how God instructed him to deliver Nigerians from poverty.

The philanthropist made this known on his Instagram page on Thursday, September 9, 2021, in a lengthy post.

He wrote, “Few years ago, I was laying in my bed in California when I got an instruction, very clear and sound instruction from God to go to Nigeria and free people from poverty, at first I acted like I didn’t hear because in my head God can’t tell me to leave the beautiful life he has given me and the little savings I have to enter the slums in Nigeria and help strangers I don’t even know.”

“One might ask how does God even talk to people? well one of the ways you know is God/Holy Spirit talking is he tells you what you know you can never tell yourself and what your flesh will not be comfortable with.”

“The voice was constant for weeks so in other not to act as though I am disobeying I started helping some few white people in the streets of Los Angeles (still have some of the videos in on my page) but I noticed that the more I do that the more i feel guilty, empty and out of line from Gods plan because it was not what I was instructed to do.”

The actor also wrote that it took him two months to finally agree to travel to Nigeria and on landing in Lagos, a heavy compassion for the less privilege quadrupled in his heart.

“…I was thinking God will give me billions as he has asked me to help people but instead of money he gave me a heart of compassion for the poor and before I knew it I started to empty my account to help people.”

The actor is known for his philanthropic role in the society and also runs a foundation.
