I live for the needy because I was once like them, says Suleiman
After a successful two-day crusade tagged: “Raw Power,” which held in Lagos, the founder and president of the Omega Fire Ministries, Edo State, Apostle Johnson Suleman has described the outing as ‘awesome’, saying four percent of the entire Lagos population had been touched. The Edo-based cleric said Lagos State was highly expecting his visit and was happy that God didn’t disappoint his followers.
Said he: “I thank God for the two-day powerful healing crusade. I want to also thank God that approximately four percent of the entire Lagos population was liberated. It has always been my desire to impact positively on the poor and the less privileged and God really used this opportunity to fulfill that desire.”
Fielding questions from newsmen on the alleged political discrimination and persecution of the Church by the Kaduna State government, Apostle Suleiman said: “Early this year, the Lord revealed to me the persecutions of the Church by government and this has majorly taken effect in Kaduna State. I don’t have personal issues with any governor, but I think there are better things for the governor to do in the state rather than fight Christianity through sentimental laws of banning public use of speaker and issuance of licence, among others, all of which are against the divine order and Nigeria Constitution, which is supreme to the laws of any state.
“People are living in poverty and hardship, which to me should be a major concern to him. If all he can do is to use his first one year in office fighting God, it is very clear that he won’t go far because whoever stands on the way of the church will go for it.”
On his flashy dressing, the president agrees that his style of dressing is loud, but that it had been his style from the beginning. He was quick to add that 95 percent of what he wears in form of suits and shoes are gifts from people.
“I don’t buy most of the expensive wears you see on me. I can’t imagine saving money for expensive clothes and shoes. My major concern in life is for the needy. I live my life for them because I was once needy in life,” he said.
Speaking on prophesy and why Nigerians should prepare for more hardship, the cleric said: “Respite will come, and as a matter of fact, when God speaks, no matter how much His words are contested, they will come to pass. Truly, this year is one of reckoning for public thieves and the public love for President Muhammadu Buhari is gradually fading away because of the present economic conditions. It is the will of God that the thieves should be caught, but this should have a positive effect on the nation’s economy. The looted funds recovered should reduce the hardship of the masses.”
Asked if he had any plan to buy a private jet, the author of many books said: “Having a private jet for evangelism is good, as it enhances movements, but that is not part of the ministerial agenda at the moment. As the Lord holds the future, if He wants a private jet for me, it will come.”
