THE General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, has advised members of his church willing to take the COVID-19 vaccine to go ahead, saying he will not hesitate to do same if it is the requirement of any country he intends to visit on evangelism.
Addressing a congregation of worshippers in the early hours of Saturday at the monthly Holy Ghost Night on October 2, 2021, the cleric said he has nothing against the vaccine as he can also take it if necessary.
Stressing that safety is of the Lord, Daddy GO cleared the air that he did not instruct members not to take the Covid-19 vaccine, adding that members who want to take the vaccine should do so instead of living in fear or doubt.
In his words: “I never said to you don’t be vaccinated, you have never heard that from me. Rather than living in fear or doubt, get vaccinated. If you believe that getting vaccinated would 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 I can not come to preach the gospel there because of vaccination, I will do anything for Jesus Christ.
“If vaccination is going to hinder me from doing the work that God has called me to do, if they asked me to get vaccinated 10 times, I would be vaccinated.
“Don’t ever say that you hear from me that you should not be vaccinated,” the very respected cleric said adding that he broke silence many people are asking questions on the issue.
He emphasised he is man under authority, presupposing that the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, PFN, are qualified to speak such issues in his stead, hence he was addressing his children only.
