Apostle Johnson Suleman, the general overseer of the Omega Fire Ministries International, has explained why he once prayed that COVID-19 should not end.
Suleman, in one of his recent sermons, said during the lockdown he enjoyed enough time alone to rest with his wife, Punch reports.
The famous Nigerian Christian cleric said he also prospered a lot, adding that there was no stress of any kind during the period.
"My wife asked, 'Can life be this sweet?'
“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.”
Earlier, Suleman had revealed that he bought his third jet during the COVID-19 pandemic. Legit.ng gathered that the senior pastor made the disclosure while delivering a recent sermon in a video that has gone viral on Twitter.
In the video shared by a user @ikhide on Wednesday, February 17, the cleric stated that he was praying for the pandemic not to end because he was resting.
Meanwhile, a group of medical scientists from Edinburgh University had claimed that a variant of the COVID-19 known as the B1525 had been traced to Nigeria.
The researchers in their latest report also said the variant has some mutations that have been a recipe for serious worry.
However, the scientists maintain that more studies need to be done on the B1525 to ascertain its peculiarities.
