The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has posited that he is yet to get his shot of the COVID-19 vaccine and he would do so for the sake of the gospel.
According to statistics from the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, Nigeria has officially witnessed over 200,000 ca of COVID-19 and more than 2,700 deaths after the pandemic broke out.
Adeboye urged his congregation to put their fears aside and go ahead with the acceptance of the Covid 19 vaccine and he is ready to do everything for the sake of the gospel so in case he plans to preach the word in a nation where they mandate visitors to take the vaccine, he would gladly oblige and take it.
The cleric made his submission during the Friday night Holy Ghost Service programme of the church.
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.”
