Lagos State Govt warns TB Joshua to avoid welcoming Ebola Victims
The Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Jide Idris and other government officials has visited Pastor TB.Joshua’s Synagogue to advice them against opening their doors to people from West African countries with the disease.
Mr. Idris said; “We have our strategies that we intend to share with you. 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.”
Another member of the delegation and Director, Centre for Disease Control (CDC), Professor Abdulsalami Nasidi said; We are here to engage you positively, we know the powers of this House and your powers and we are duty – bound to protect you and your congregation. We have no doubt the power God has given you, we cant do that, but we want to help and make it work stronger.
Reacting to their visit, Prophet Joshua, promised to work with government by suspending most of his major church healing programs and also said, he would visit those countries than allow their residents come to Nigeria.
In his words: “I am ready to work with you. I love my country and I will be ready to work with you. Even if it is a rumour, there is need to secure our environment to ensure that it is safe.”
