The billionaire co-founder of Microsoft, Bill Gates has been warned to leave Africa alone over his campaign that the continent would be the epicenter of the dreaded covid-19 pandemic.
The warning came from the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye who said that Nigeria may not have money or resources to fight the pandemic, but the citizens have God, adding that having God is enough to protect the citizens from the pandemic.
The cleric spoke on Sunday at the January Special Thanksgiving Service and Ground-Breaking Ceremony of the Coastline Worship Centre of the Redeemed Church of God National Headquarters, Throne of Grace, Ebutte-Metta, Lagos.
He said this while responding to a statement made by the Founder of Microsoft, Bill Gate, who said he was yet to understand why COVID-19 cases and fatalities still remain low in Africa.
Adeboye said: “When I read that it will take 10 years to vaccinate people in the U.S., I wonder when the vaccine will come to Nigeria. We have no money; we have no resources, but we have God. They expected us to be dying like flies, but we have a God who says he that dwells in the secret place will be under the shadow of the almighty.”
“It is the God that reigns and rules in the affairs of men and the world must recognise his lordship in all that they do,” Pastor Adeboye said, noting that the world would defeat coronavirus by depending on divine wisdom and not science.
