Suleman’s church in Dubai had congratulated him on Facebook for acquiring the new jet saying it was “propagation of the Gospel of Christ”.
However, Daddy Freeze, known to be critical of preachers in recent times, said:
“Apostle Johnson Suleman, I heard you just bought a private jet.
“Please, how many poor people in your church are you helping? I need a response, thank you.”
Reacting to his question, Reno Omokri, a former aide of ex-president Goodluck Jonathan, disagreed with him, saying that “this question is not borne out of good faith. I know Apostle Suleman personally. I also put you in touch with him privately. If you truly want to know the answer to that question, you can contact him privately to find out whether he actually bought a private jet, and What he does for the poor.
“This is grandstanding and playing to the gallery. Apostle Suleman has done so many charitable works but he does not like publicising them and I support him for it. The Bible says “when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing”-Matthew 6:3. He has helped me raise money for Leah Sharibu’s mother when she was in need, but it is wrong of me to even say that publicly. I regret what you have done with this post and I am not one to backbite. I say it to you before your face.”
