Pastor Enoch Adeboye, the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has said will get vaccinated against the Coronavirus (COVID-19) for the sake of preaching the gospel globally.
Adeboye stated this at the church’s monthly Holy Ghost convention monitored by The Nation.
He clarified that he has never told anyone not to get the vaccine.
Some prominent preachers such as Bishop David Oyedepo, Pastor Chris Oyakhilome and Dr Joshua Suleman have kicked against vaccination.
But Adeboye said: “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.
“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 ask me to get vaccinated 10 times, I would be vaccinated.”
