Enoch Adeboye, General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), has revealed that he will receive the COVID-19 vaccine for the sake of preaching the gospel globally.
Adeboye disclosed this during the monthly Holy Ghost Service programme of the church at the Redemption Camp along the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway on Friday.
According to the renowned cleric, he is not an anti-vaxxer as he has never told anyone not to get the vaccine.
The 79-year-old preacher stated that God’s mercies have kept Nigerians all along, noting that only those whose time to die had come died.
He 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.
“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.”
