What other calls do you have?
I teach people the reality of redemption, empower them and touch lives by the power of the Holy Spirit. I also prepare the saints for the coming of Christ and plant churches.
How many churches have you planted so far?
I want to plant churches in 120 countries of the world. But, currently, I have six branches, three in Nigeria, one in Houston, New York and Michigan with great testimony everywhere.
It is said you are one of the Nigerian pastor making waves in America, what is the secret?
The secret i s God and affecting the lives of those who have love and passion for the gospel. Through that may lives have been transformed through preaching the word of God in ministry, and there were miracles.
What challenges are you facing making exploits in America?
As a result of what God is doing through me, many became envious and jealous. At a point, my co-pastors ganging up against me. But that did not deter me from moving forward because God is in control.
How did you get into the ministry?
My salvation experience and call to the ministry was unique, itinerant, and a divine visitation. I was born with sickle cell anaemia and lost my father in 1994. Now, I am enjoying God’s wealth and divine health from God who healed me from sickle cell anaemia by changing my blood group to A A. Despise my bitter experience while growing up, I did not lose focus or got discouraged.
How long have you been in the ministry?
Well, I have been in the ministry for about 28 years now.
How has it been since then?
So far so good. It has made me a renowned minister of God with Apostolic unction of healing, accurate prophecies with solutions and a deliverance minister. I am also a solicitor and facilitator by heaven’s mandate. In fact, I am so passionate about the works of the kingdom, nation building and have the mission to Impact Kingship and banish slavery. I rounded up a prophetic programme recently, where I revealed with precision the past, the present and the future occurrences in the lives of some of my members.
As your name implies, you have been a source of blessing to many lives, who do you give?
I give mainly to the needy and committed people, as being led by God.Recently during one of my programmes titled; ‘You cannot fight for God’, I gave over 10 cars to ten members in my ministry, and over 22 cars out of my ministry. The cars were gifts from people. Recently, I got a 2019 Mercedes Benz E400 convertible during my birthday.
How would you describe giving?
Giving is the secret to prosperity. I do not just believe in talking, as a pastor, I believe in praying, and being a physical blessing to people.
