‘It slipped out of my mouth’ – Apostle Suleman reacts to video of him praying COVID-19 shouldn’t end

Apostle Johnson Suleman, the General Overseer of the Omega Fire Ministries International, has said his comment about praying for Covid-19 pandemic not to end was a mistake.

In a video that went viral last week, Suleman while preaching at a church program, 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?”

He was wildly criticised for being excited about the pandemic that has crippled the economic lives of many including the people who attend his church.

Reacting to the criticism, the clergyman while preaching in his church on Sunday, February 21, said the video of him making the statement was edited by a fellow pastor who dislikes him.

“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” he said.

The clergyman 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
