The Nigerian Humanist Association has thrown out a challenge to Nigerian ‘Man of God’ Apostle Suleman to heal just one person of coronavirus and receive $1,000.
According to a statement from the group, men of God have been talking about their miracle powers for too long – it’s now time for them to prove it.
The challenge comes after Apostle Suleman petitioned the Nigerian government to allow pastors to enter COVID isolation centres.
According to him, if they are granted access they can heal some of the people there.
That triggered the Humanist Association of Nigeria to throw out a challenge.
“I am challenging the founder of Omega Ministries, Apostle Suleman to demonstrate his so-called gift of healing under agreed medical and scientific conditions,” Leo Igwe, President of the body said.
“I ask Suleman to heal a person with a confirmed case of COVID-19 and get a thousand US dollars. This challenge has become necessary because Apostle Suleman has in a recent video, urged the government of Nigeria to allow him and other pastors with the gift of healing into the isolation centres so that they could pray and heal those who have been infected by the virus.
“This request should not go unattended. Suleman specifically said that the gifted pastors could heal 18 out of 20 COVID-19 patients. This is a reasonable number. Isn’t it?
“And in a recent tweet, Apostle Suleman affirmed that (his) God was bigger than the Coronavirus. This challenge is for Suleman to heal, not 2 or 3 persons, not 10 or 15 patients but one person with a viral infection.” Igwe added.
