The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has revealed why he would take the COVID-19 vaccine.
Adeboye while addressing a congregation of worshippers on Saturday at the monthly Holy Ghost Night, said he would take the vaccine if it is the requirement of any country he intends to visit on evangelism.
He also stated that he did not instruct his church members not to take the COVID-19 vaccine, adding that members who want to take the vaccine should do so instead of living in fear or doubt.
He said, “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. If taking the vaccine will make you feel safer, you can go ahead to take,” stressing that “if there is need for me to take it, I will do.”
