Apostle Johnson Suleman, founder of Omega Fire Ministries Worldwide, has retracted his latest statement on the end of COVID-19.
After the cleric was criticized for his sermon, he said that he once prayed that the COVID-19 pandemic might not end.
You would recall that Gistongist earlier reported that the 49-year-old said he bought another Jet to add to his previous two, while others were hoping that because of the suffering that came with it, the Covid-19 pandemic would stop.
Apostle Suleman has now retracted the statement, as he said it was a slip of tongue as no pastor can make such prayer.
“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.” He said.
