The general overseer of Omega Fire Ministries International, Apostle Johnson Suleman, has reacted to a viral video of himself telling his church members that he bought his third private jet during the COVID-19 lockdown and was praying for the pandemic not to end.
In the viral video, Johnson Suleman revealed to his congregation that he bought his third private jet during the coronavirus lockdown, adding that while many were complaining, him and his wife were enjoying.
Addressing his comments in the video, Apostle Suleman said he never prayed for COVID-19 not to end. The cleric said when he saw the video, he realized the statement “slipped out of my mouth”.
The pastor said the video was made public by an enemy pastor of his.
“There’s a video that is trending about me. It was posted by a pastor against me. It was a programme 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 Covid 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.”
Suleman added that those who are angry that he bought a third private jet will just die.
“If you are angry I mentioned three jets, you go just die. That’s the truth,” he said.
