I regret my words on Covid-19, Apostle Suleiman says

General Overseer of the Omega Fire Ministries International, Apostle Johnson Suleman, has expressed regrets over his statement in a viral video stating ‘he prayed for Covid-19 not to end.’

Apostle Suleman, in the viral video which attracted a widespread backlash, also said he bought his third private jet during the pandemic.

Responding to the widespread criticisms while preaching to a congregation, he said he regretted saying the statement adding that it was said in error.

He said the video was edited in some parts. He however wondered why people were angry over his claim of having three private jets saying he has done other philanthropic gestures like building federal roads, building houses for widows, buying transformers, paying graduates salaries.

Speaking on his claim of having three private jets, he said: “If you are angry, I mentioned three jets, you go just die. That’s the truth".

“Then you are angry I mentioned jets, you never vex. If you cannot commend me then you cannot condemn me.

“God will only be angry with me if I take offering and tithe to buy a plane. But if I have avenues of God blessing me, what’s your business? Is your money missing?”
