The General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye, has banned delegates from Ebola-hit countries such as Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea, from attending the on-going church’s National Convention.
Adeboye, speaking during a visit of the Joint Task Force of the Federal and Lagos state governments yesterday, said no delegate from the Ebola-infected countries showed up, as they were not allowed.
He said the decision was to prevent the spread of Ebola Virus Disease (EVD), in Nigeria.
Adeboye told his pastors that all those who fasted for 100 days the last time should have no fear of Ebola, as the disease would not get to them.
He however warned pastors to avoid laying hands on anybody they suspected have full blown Ebola as they might contract the disease.
The team, led by Lagos state commissioner for health, Dr. Jide Idris, said the visit is to adopt precautionary measures, by not allowing people from the infected countries to come to the church’s convention, which usually attracts thousands of participants from all part of the world.
