Former minister of aviation Femi Fani-Kayode says he has seen videos of the founder of Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN) Prophet T.B. Joshua healing thousands of COVID-19 patients via satellite.
In a post on Instagram on Monday, Mr Fani-Kayode wrote that the World Health Organisation has acknowledged and commended the preacher’s work.
“I watched in amazement how God healed thousands from 43 nations through prayers by satellite on Emmanuel TV by Prophet T.B. Joshua over the last one month. The satellite was connected to COVID-19 isolation centres in those countries & after prayers the patients were healed,” he wrote.
“The doctors looking after them at the centres and the patients themselves testified to this. Even the World Health Organisation has publicly acknowledged and commended the good work he is doing and TB himself has said that the prayers must be coupled with the taking of the necessary medication and that all COVID protocols must be observed and strictly adhered to. He said that the medical and the spiritual must go together.”
Joshua had in July called on governments and international bodies to get coronavirus patients in isolation centres connected to his Emmanuel TV cable channel in order for them to receive divine healing.
Bishop David Oyedepo of Winners’ Chapel had also claimed to cure COVID-19 patients.
A controversial US-based doctor and pastor Stella Immanuel who claimed that hydroxychloroquine is a cure for coronavirus is the latest of preachers to lay claim to coronavirus cure.
In his post, Fani-Kayode said it is time for Nigeria to join millions of people in the world to benefit from the work God was doing with Joshua.
“I challenge the Federal Government to hook him up by satellite through his Emmanuel TV to isolation centres in Nigeria as well and see the result.
“More than ever before we need the healing touch of God to deliver us from this evil plague and we have someone that can provide that through prayer on television right here in our shores. Millions all over the world are tapping into this great anointing and blessing but some Nigerians remain skeptical and cynical,” the ex-minister wrote.
