COVID-19 is real, don’t joke with it – Olukoya

MFM Founder Daniel Olukoya

General Overseer of the Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries (MFM) Daniel Olukoya has called on Nigerians to take the coronavirus pandemic seriously and not go about believing the disease does not exist.

Speaking on Monday while inaugurating the remodeled foyer of the University of Lagos senate building sponsored by him, Olukoya said as a microbiologist and a preacher he could confirm the virus is real.

“The first thing is to convince the populace that it is real because some people don’t believe it exists. But I am a man of God and I have prayed for so many people with the same infirmity and I know that it exists.  So, we should not joke with it.  People should obey all the rules.  And most importantly, we should pray that this pandemic will go away,” he said.

UNILAG Vice-Chancellor Prof. Oluwatoyin Ogundipe thanked Olukoya for being a worthy alumnus of the university.

Ogundipe said Olukoya had in the past donated a research laboratory to the university.
