Pastor Enoch Adeboye,, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, has disclosed the reason behind his vaccination from the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to the renowned cleric, this was due to the propagation of the gospel.
Adeboye made this assertion on Friday, October 1, during the monthly Holy Ghost Service programme of the church at the Redemption Camp along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.
The 79-year-old preacher said God’s mercies have kept Nigerians all along, noting that only those whose time to die had come died.
Adeboye said, “I have never said to you, ‘Don’t be vaccinated.’ You’ve never heard that from me. Rather than live in fear or doubt, get vaccinated. If you believe that getting vaccinated will put your mind at rest, then go ahead.
“Daddy, are you saying that you too could be vaccinated? If there are nations in the world that say that I cannot come to preach the gospel there because of vaccination, I will do anything for Jesus Christ.
“If vaccination or no vaccination is going to hinder me from doing the work God has called me to do; even if they ask me to be vaccinated 100 times, I will be vaccinated.
“So, don’t ever say that you heard from me that I said that you should not be vaccinated.”
