Apostle Suleman retracts COVID-19 comments, says it’s a slip of tongue


Allow ministers go into Isolation centres to heal Coronavirus patients – Apostle Suleman urges FG (video)

Nigerian televangelist and the senior pastor and general overseer of Omega Fire Ministries International, Apostle Johnson Suleman, has retracted his recent comment about the ending of COVID-19.

WuzupNigeria reports that the Auchi-based cleric had come under fire over his sermon where he stated that he once prayed that the COVID-19 pandemic shouldn’t end.

The 49-year-old said he bought another Jet to add to his previous two while others were praying for the Covid-19 pandemic to end due to the hardship that came with it.

He said,

“In COVID (pandemic) I bought a jet; the third one. I have three. I was praying for COVID-19 not to end because I was resting. While people were complaining, my wife asked, ‘Can life be this sweet?’ Am I talking to somebody here?”

“No stress. I read on the Internet that there’s a rumour going around that I have a machine that prints money. I like that rumour. They say, ‘he should be investigated. He has a machine that prints money.

“Somebody asked if it’s true and I said it is true. They said, ‘It’s risky o’. I said I didn’t know it’s risky because I already bought the machine. When you speak in tongues, you’re printing money.”

Apostle Suleman has now retracted the statement, as he said it was a slip of the tongue as no pastor can make such prayer.

He said;

There’s a video that is trending about me. It was posted by a pastor against me. It was a program I had in Abuja and I was trying to explain something about COVID-19. When they told me that I prayed for COVID-19 not to end, I said ‘me? I didn’t say that.’

“When they brought the video, I discovered it slipped out of my mouth. There’s no pastor that will pray for Covid19 not to end. It doesn’t make sense. I was talking about what happens around Covid, how families were staying together, how families united, how some people even made money during that process.

“That was what I was trying to buttress and it slipped out of my mouth. I could not have prayed for Covid not to end, no pastor would do that. But he (the pastor) took that mistake, edited some part, and blew it.”
