MFM Pastor Olukoya shakes table, says Jesus could have been born in April

The General Overseer of the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries (MFM), Dr. Daniel Olukoya, on Tuesday, warned Nigerians to take the COVID-19 seriously.

Olukoya, who made the call during the inauguration of the remodeled foyer of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) Senate Building, advised Nigerians to obey COVID-19 protocols put in place by the government.

While he lamented that many Nigerians still do not believe that COVID-19 was real, the cleric said the virus should not be toyed with.

Olukoya implored the Federal Government to begin an awareness campaign in a bid to persuade Nigerians that COVID-19 was real.

He said: “The first thing is to convince the populace that COVID-19 was real because some people don’t believe it exists.

“But I am a man of God and I have prayed for so many people with the same infirmity. I know that it exists. So, we should not joke about it.

“People should obey all the rules. And most importantly, we should pray that this pandemic will go away.”
