• Buhari gets booster dose of Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine
General Superintendent of Deeper Life Bible Church, William Kumuyi, has reaffirmed that COVID-19 is real following personal observation with his junior pastors.

It “is real”, the cleric said, noting, however, “God has a solution for every problem.” He, nevertheless, advised people to comply with safety rules and precautions.

He spoke in Lagos, yesterday, during an interaction with the media, ahead of the church’s global crusade, which started yesterday.

Tagged, ‘Great Miracle Explosion’, the event will run till December 26 at the Deeper Life International Conference Centre, Km 42, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

Responding to questions on the virus, Kumuyi said: “From my observations, I know that COVID-19 is real; it is not fake. It is not a politically arranged thing. It’s real.

“We’ve had people who had real COVID situations and they were in isolation. In fact, one of our men, one of our pastors, was about passing away. According to him, he had said his last prayer because in that isolation, he had seen other people dying.

“I knew about it and I called him on phone and prayed with him. Within, I would say, one hour, he was completely healed. He went to the toilet, got up by himself, came by himself, and the Lord brought him back to life.”

He said also that in America, a child contracted the virus at school and infected six family members but was healed after a prayer through the phone.

“Just this week, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, one of our leaders was in isolation and it was COVID-19. They called on phone and I prayed. I got their text yesterday that everything is all right.”

On the crusade, he said: “I believe there will be a turning around for lives and families and for our nation.”

MEANWHILE, President Muhammadu Buhari, yesterday, received the booster dose of Pfizer BioNTech vaccine administered by his Chief Personal Physician, Dr. Suhayb Rafindadi.

Thereafter, Director General of National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA), Dr. Faisal Shuaib, signed the President’s vaccination card at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Shuaib said Buhari was leading by example, being one of the first to receive the booster shot, while at the same time passing a message to Nigerians that the vaccines are safe for all and efficacious.

He appealed to citizens who are still in doubt to embrace the vaccines, adding: “The evidence is there. Over eight million Nigerians have taken the vaccines safely. They are well. They are going about their normal businesses and what we’re seeing from data is that COVID-19 is now mostly a disease of the unvaccinated.

“Out of every 10 people that have died, data shows that eight of them were unvaccinated. So, there’s a greater likelihood of dying from COVID-19 if you’re unvaccinated.”
