T.B. Joshua asks Ebola victims to stay in their countries

TB Joshua

Obey the law of the land by not crossing the borders of your nation with Ebola virus.”

As panic continues to grow over the outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus, Temitope Joshua (popularly known as Pastor T.B Joshua), the Founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations, has directed Ebola victims to stay in their countries.

Mr. Joshua’s directive followed a plea by the officials of the Lagos State Ministry of Health and the Federal Government who visited his church, last Sunday, to seek his cooperation.

“What makes you a good citizen makes you a good Christian. There is a general law in every country that binds against Ebola victims from crossing borders,” Mr. Joshua announced on the church’s official website and Facebook page.

“Obey the law of your land and it shall be well with you. Obey the law of the land by not crossing the borders of your nation with Ebola virus,” he added.

Jide Idris, the Lagos State Commissioner of Health, who led the government delegation, said that the visit is one of government’s strategies to seek collaboration with faith-based organizations.

“We have our strategies that we intend to share with you,” said Mr. Idris, a medical doctor.

“Again, we need to know the resources you have here because whether it is one or two cases, if they are allowed to get out, it is a major problem. We are here to work together on how to contain this disease,” he added.

Mr. Joshua, the General Overseer of the Lagos-based church, is controversial for his claims of using divine powers to heal all kinds of ailments, prompting sick people from across Africa and the world to regularly throng his church.

Last week, Ituah Ighodalo, the Founder of Trinity House, sparked outrage on his Facebook page after he said that “the Name of Jesus” will cause the viral spread to stop.

The pastor had since come out to clarify that his Facebook post was merely a “message of hope and faith reminding us of the ever living words of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.”

At least 826 people have died from Ebola since January as the virus continues to spread across Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.

The Nigerian Minister of Health, Onyebuchi Chukwu, on Monday said that a medical doctor in Lagos has been infected with the deadly Ebola virus.

The unnamed doctor marks the second case of confirmed Ebola infection in Lagos after Patrick Sawyer, a Liberian, contracted and died of the ailment last month.

According to the Prof. Chukwu, 70 other people believed to have come into contact with the Liberian were being monitored.

Of the eight people now in quarantine, three show “symptomatic” signs of the disease, the health minister said.

    I was expecting him to say they should put in their respective countries, that he was coming to heal them there…
    Oloshi. Let him near any Ebola patient and prove his mettle, not just predicting predictable football games. Liars!

        No wonder President Biya of Cameroon expelled all fake Nigerian pastors from his country…
        after a woman who refused conventional treatment died in Redeem fake church. None of them has ever healed anybody, no of them ever will. Senseless Nigerians, don’t count on them to open their eyes. Mumudon indeed!

        The latest about EVD is that President Koromah of Sierra Leone sent an official letter to the ‘only annointed man of God’,Prophet TB Joshua requesting him to offer prayers to heal those affected by Ebola in Sierra Leone. In response, Prophet TB Joshua chartered an aircraft at the cost of £50,000 to convey a team of evangelist and 40,000 new annointed water to be administered on Ebola victims in the name of Jesus Christ , and also a cash gift of £50,000 for the victims. I strongly believe and convinced that

    Bishop, Ebola patients need prayers for healing not instruction to stay and respect the laws in the our countries.

      Do you understand the issue at stake? Lagos state Government is saying TB Joshua should his people to keep Ebola patients away from his Church. This is a government directive to him. Are you saying he should disobey a lawful directive by the state Government. Did he say he will not pray for them? I think many Nigerians like lawless religious fanatics. Now when they take it to the extent they start waging war against the state we will start crucifying them. TB Joshua has taken the right step here, people who must criticize at all costs should leave him alone.
