COVID-19 will subside but it not go away, RCCG General Overseer asserts


The General Overseer of Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has asserted that God had told him that coronavirus will subside but not go away.

Adeboye said this on Sunday in the opening of his monthly telecast.

In his words:

“God told me Coronavirus will subside but it will not go away. Safety is of the lord, stop fearing the devil.”

He stated that malaria killed more people last year than COVID-19. He quoted media reports as saying that not less than 200,000 persons reportedly died as a result of Malaria in Nigeria in 2021, adding that despite the disruption caused by COVID-19, the causality figure was less than 2,000.

He said, “I read in the newspaper that 200,000 people died from Malaria in Nigeria last year.

“For coronavirus, the casualty figure is less than 2,000. Which one is more deadly? Is it ‘Coro’ or Malaria?”

He condemned the increase of persons who took delight in staying away from the church citing coronavirus as an excuse, saying that he had prophesied that it would subside and not go away.

“Any young person staying away from church is disobeying God, anyone older than me is old and anyone younger than me is young. I am still young. If you want to wear a facemask, fine.”
