The Rev. Rufus Ositelu who sometime last year during the 2019 Tabieorar had predicted that the world would be brought to its knees by a disease which would originate from China without any known cure, also at an interview with KOKO TV Primate Rufus also noted that the Coronavirus disease is a leveller that knows not the difference between the rich and the poor.

He also said Jesus Christ is the divine healer while Ministers were simply vessels, mortals and instruments with no power of their own unless it is willed, sanctioned and commanded by God.

“It is wrong to ascribe the power of miracles and healing to pastors and as such blame them for not performing healing at this time,” he said.

He said pastors who claimed to have “powers to heal” diseases had been at the receiving end of jokes, scoffing and criticisms by Nigerians.

“Many have dismissed ‘Men of God’ as mere charlatans, questioning why they had not shown up at hospitals and quarantine centres where coronavirus patients are being treated to heal them,” he said.

He, however, advised Nigerians to watch out for fraudsters and charlatans who might want to capitalise on the raging pandemic to defraud citizens with false claims of having supernatural abilities to eradicate the virus.
