It’s been a while, Sir?
I am very happy to be with you people today. It’s a good day.
Your forthcoming programme in Mercyland, what is it all about?
First of all, a day like this is a great day. We look unto God. The Bible says that with God all things are possible…
Prophet Shepherd Bushiri would be coming to Mercy City in May, what is it really all about?
He is a friend in the vineyard of God. And had been with us when I was coming up. He started with me and commissioned Mercy City; you’ve seen and heard that. He was in Mercy City three years ago. I have also visited him and it’s time for him to come to Nigeria again.
What should we expect?
We are both called to work in the Lord’s vineyard in order to win souls for God. The people that are in captivity would be set free through the name of Jesus Christ. The programme is between May 4 and May 8.
What about the annual programme for women seeking the fruits of the womb, I Must Carry My Samuel?
We just finished the programme. It was for three days. People from all walks of life trooped in for the programme. Pregnant women were giving birth and we also gave them free baby gifts and N50,000 each. As we usually do.
What is your comment on the way the country is right now?
We only need prayers in this country. As I said earlier, with God all things are possible. But Nigeria really needs prayer and we have been praying and I believe that God will help us. All these things that are happening right now are for people to know that the power of God is real and great. We, pastors, bishops, prophets, are praying for peace to reign in this country.
What do you have to say concerning the challenges Apostle Johnson Suleiman is going through?
Jesus told his followers that whatever thing that he is passing through, his followers will also pass through same. They called Jesus Christ names. Some said He was using Beelzubub spirit to cast out demons. All these didn’t start today. These things started in the days of old. It’s one of those things. If we are followers of Christ, these things must surely come to us.
A lot of people are coming out with different stories and evidence? And it’s getting worse by the day?
All these allegations are not true. A man of God is a man of God. Though there are stories coming from different places, till tomorrow, I will say that it’s not true. God is still backing him up.
Have you spoken to him one on one, since all these started?
Yes…I met him today because we boarded the same flight from Benin to Lagos. I encouraged him. He’s not even bothered. I asked him how he feels with all the allegations. He said that these things must follow us because we are people that are working in the Body of Christ. I saw something like this coming last year during the December cross over and I said we needed to be prayerful. In my own case, there was an accident. I sent my boys to my village to encourage secondary school students for interhouse sport two weeks ago. They went with my Hilux vehicle and on their way back, the vehicle somersaulted thrice and it was raining, but glory be to God, nobody was injured. If something bad had happened to them, people will call me names. People will say I sent them to my village, Ojobo, to use them for the rapid growth of my ministry.
Based on what is happening to Apostle Suleiman, what have you learnt from it? How have you been able to guide your own territory to avoid such situations?
The experience and what I have learnt from it is the same. We cannot dodge it. No man of God can dodge it except you are not called. Look at the histories of great men of God in Nigeria, you must hear these stories. It is by prayer and God’s mercy. That is why I advise our colleagues in the vineyard of God to pray for other colleagues.
Should Apostle Suleiman forgive Stephanie Otobo?
I told him and he said that he is a human being; that if God can forgive, then who is he not to forgive.
What happened to the Pool of Bethesda, is it now functioning?
The contractors are the problem. They have never met up with the target. I have spent a lot; it’s almost done.
You predicted that some pastors will go through persecution; can you shed more light on that?
Yes, I said scandals are coming, that we should pray. I told my church members to pray for me and I said it in November, December and during the cross over. After the Sunday I predicted it, on Monday, they accused Suleiman.
Have you finally decided to hold a crusade in Lagos?
I held a meeting early last month with the partners of Mercy Television. We discussed. They are prepared. Lagos is big. It’s a country on its own. If you are not prepared to enter Lagos, you will not see any soul to win. I promise, it will be in December. But no date yet.
