Apostle Johnson Suleman, Founder, Omega Fire Ministries Worldwide, has retracted his recent comment about the ending of COVID-19.
This is coming after the cleric was criticized for his sermon which he stated that he once prayed that the COVID-19 pandemic shouldn’t end.
Suleman, the 49-year-old pastor, bought another Jet to add to his previous two while others were praying for 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 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.”
