OYOGist.com has learned that the Founder of Salvation Ministries, Pastor David Ibiyeomie has joined other religious leaders who believe that the COVID-19 global pandemic does not exist in Nigeria.
Pastor Ibiyeomie while speaking in jest after one of his May 17, 2020 Sunday services in Port Harcourt suggested that Coronavirus is probably an advanced stage of Malaria.
The Clergy who made reference to comments by the founder of DAAR Communications (AIT/Raypower), High Chief Aleogho Raymond Dokpesi that he was treated for malaria during his isolation period at the Gwagwalada COVID-19 Treatment center, said Nigerians are sick of malaria and typhoid and not Coronavirus.
Pastor Ibiyeomie also made a mockery of the COVID-19 strategy adopted by Nigerian Governors leading to the closure of borders, places of worship and other measures to combat the spread of the virus. He facetiously advised the Federal government to spread funds to other states, “so they can stop all these Lockdowns.”
