Apostle Johnson Suleman, the General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries International, has revealed that he became richer during the COVID-19 lockdown in 2020.
He said this during one of his church services recently.
The Federal Government and some state governments had imposed a lockdown or some form of restriction movement from March to May 2020 as part of measures to curb the spread of COVID-19.
Suleman disclosed that he bought a private jet- making it his third private jet – during that period, adding that he was praying for the lockdown not to end as he was making money while some persons were asking questions over the source of his wealth.
He said: “In COVID, I bought a jet, the third one. I was praying for COVID-19 not to end because I was resting while people were complaining. My wife asked me can life be this sweet?, no stress.
“I read on the net that I have a machine printing money. I like that rumour. They said I should be investigated that I have a machine printing money. Somebody said is it true? I said it’s true. The person said it is risky, I said ‘I don’t know, I already bought the machine’. When you speak in tongues, you’re printing money.”
According to the preacher, before the acquisition of his jets, he had always been against preachers buying private jets as there are church members who are desperately in need of financial assistance.
However, his mindset changed when one of his members, whom he prayed for, was miraculously blessed and bought him his first private jet.
He said: “Many years ago, I was interviewed, and they asked me is it good for a man of God to have a jet? I said for what, when there are hungry people in church, people are suffering in the church, some of you have heard me said that.
“Some of you have read on the newspapers when people are suffering and hungry, I said no that the money should be given to widows, they said what if somebody offers to buy it, I said it doesn’t matter, carry the money, give to widows, nobody should buy a jet it is wrong.
“How did I get my first jet? Somebody who was to be killed, they were calling him to come to the village and I called him out by prophecy and I said don’t go anywhere, you will not die, I said stay with me. I began to take care of him, doors opened for him, he travelled to a particular country, heaven shut up, doors began to open. Many years later, he called me and said I don’t like you using commercial flights, I will buy you a plane.”
