Nigerian Pastor Enoch Adeboye of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, has criticized state governors forcing Nigerians to take COVID-19 vaccine.
Recently, it has been reported that the Governor of Edo State mandated that all citizens take the vaccine and obtain a card before having access to public places in the State.
Despite the court order by a High Court sitting in Port Harcourt, Rivers directing the government to maintain the status quo on the compulsory COVID-19 vaccination for citizens, Governor Godwin Obaseki maintained that his government’s directive of no access to public places without being vaccinated still stands.
But Adeboye while speaking during October Holy Ghost Service wondered why some State Governors are mandating Nigerians to take the vaccine before they gain access to banks and churches when the number of doses available is not enough in the country.
“The number of doses available in the country is not even enough for 10 per cent of the total population of the nation. How do you then say whoever does not take the vaccine will not be able to go to bank and church?
“It means 90 percent of the population 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.
“Well, I believe they just want to make us laugh and you know in Nigeria, we need things to make us laugh,” Adeboye said.
