General overseer of the ‘Synagogue Church of all nations, T.B. Joshua has revealed that 4,000 bottles of his ‘Anointed Water’ has been sent to Sierra Leone to spiritually empower the country to fight the Ebola virus disease.
The church posted on its Facebook page that a private jet had been chartered to convey the spiritual items to Sierra Leone and an additional $50,000 was also given in humanitarian aid to the victims of the disease.
Joshua also said during a church service that, the bottles of anointing water and financial aid was received by government officials of the Ebola afflicted West African nation.
He also criticised President Jonathan for declaring a state of emergency after only two deaths were recorded from the Ebola virus in Nigeria.
According to him, 2 deaths aren’t enough to warrant the state of emergency, which was declared by the President on Friday, 8 August.
He said, “All of this is propaganda. When a little thing happens, you exaggerate it because you are looking for funds. How much can the international community give to us that can redeem the name Nigeria we are soiling? A beggar always remains a beggar. Africa, stop begging – you have what it takes to solve your problems.”
Meanwhile President Goodluck Jonathan has approved a N1.9 billion special fund to combat the disease and the World Health Organisation (WHO) has declared a global health emergency on the Ebola virus disease.
