The General Overseer, Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries, Dr Daniel Olukoya, has said that Coronavirus is real.
Speaking at the unveiling of the renovated UNILAG Senate House Basement on Monday, which was financed by him, Olukoya appealed to the federal government to create more awareness on coronavirus, adding that some people did not believe COVID-19 existed.
“I think 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 know that it exists, so we should not joke with it. People should obey all the rules, protocols and most importantly we should pray that this pandemic will be wiped off. This is strange to us in microbiology,” Olukoya said.
