COVID-19 meant to expose weapons of mass destruction, says cleric
Leader of the Brotherhood of the Cross and Star (BCS), Olumba Olumba Obu has declared that the COVID-19 pandemic was meant to expose weapons of mass destruction and futility of man’s knowledge in science.
He said even with military might, political power or influence, the pandemic had shown that man should no longer take pride in his innovations and accomplishments, but embrace the power of wisdom of God above all.
Deputy Spokesman of the BCS, Ogar Osim, disclosed this yesterday in Calabar, Cross River State, while briefing journalists on the second edition of Olumba Olumba Obu’s Public Lecture scheduled for Tuesday December 22, 2020 (today) with the theme: “Reflecting On The Unique Legacy In Africa.”
He said: “The one important lesson that man must learn from the ravaging pandemic is that no nation can survive it in isolation and humanity needs to come together and take care of each other, promote the brotherhood of man and acknowledge God’s universal fatherhood.”
Speaking on the event, Osim said the Guest Lecturer, Prof. Patrick Loch Lumumba of Kenya will speak on What Is Africa’s Ideology to revealed that Africa remained the richest continent in the world and that Western theology, mysticism and Eastern spiritual masters could not dispute its economic and spiritual significance.
He noted that the annual lecture, which would be attended by about 1500 people at the Cultural Centre and over 10,000 participants on zoom across globally, was designed as part of events to mark the yearly celebration of Olumba’s divine manifestation, which holds on every December 30 in Calabar.
