The General Overseer of the Omega Fire Ministries International , Apostle Johnson Suleman, says he bought his third jet during the raging COVID -19 pandemic, which pushed the country into economic recession .
Suleman said this in a recent sermon . Although the date of the sermon could not be verified , the video has gone viral on social media .
The cleric further stated that he was praying for the pandemic not to end because he was prospering and resting .
He said, “ In COVID ( pandemic) I bought a jet ; the third one. I have three . I was praying for COVID -19 not to end because I was resting . While people were complaining, my wife asked , ‘Can life be this sweet ?’ Am I talking to somebody here?
“ No stress. I read on the Internet that there ’ s a rumour going around that I have a machine that prints money . I like that rumour. They say , ‘He should be investigated . He has a machine that prints money ’ .
“ Somebody asked if it ’s true and I said it is true . They said , ‘It ’s risky o ’. I said I didn’t know it ’ s risky because I already bought the machine . When you speak in tongues, you ’re printing money .”
Suleman has been enmeshed in an adultery scandal in recent times with one of his former pastors , Mike Davids , accusing him of sleeping with his wife , an allegation which Suleman has denied.
