Pastor Enoch Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) has denied reports that he advised his church members against taking the COVID-19 vaccine.
The RCCG General Overseer (GO) while addressing a congregation of worshippers in the early hours of Saturday at the monthly Holy Ghost Night on October 2, 2021, however, claimed he has nothing against the vaccine as he can also take it if necessary.
In his words: “I never said to you don’t be vaccinated, you have never heard that from me. Rather than living in fear or doubt, get vaccinated. If you believe that getting vaccinated would put your mind at rest, then go ahead.
“Daddy are you saying that you too could be vaccinated? If there are nations in the world that say I can not come to preach the gospel there because of vaccination, I will do anything for Jesus Christ.

“If vaccination is going to hinder me from doing the work that God has called me to do, if they asked me to get vaccinated 10 times, I would be vaccinated.
“Don’t ever say that you hear from me that you should not be vaccinated,” Adeboye said.
“The number of doses available in the country is not even enough for 10 per cent of the total population of the country, how do you then say whoever does not take the vaccine will not be able to go to the bank, church?
“it means 90 per cent of the people will not be able to access their money. We will need to go back to the olden days of keeping money, I hope you know this system.
“Well, I believe they just want to make us laugh and you know in Nigeria, we need things to make us laugh,” he further stated.
