|David Ibiyeomie: Quoted Out Of Context. by caringsce(m): 10:18am On May 20, 2020|
On the 9th of May, 2020, at exact 10:09PM I posted an article on the Health Section tagged “Salvation Ministries Donates Medical Equipments To Help Fight Covid-19 In Rivers.” Unfortunately, it didn’t make front page.
Few days ago, I saw another post on nairaland front page on how David i Ibiyeomie said there is no Coronavirus in Nigeria. He was severely bashed for making such “reckless statement”. What most of you didn’t know was that he was deliberately quoted out of context, which has recently become a norm in the media space.
To set the record straight, David Ibiyeomie never implied there’s no Coronavirus in Nigeria. Does it make sense that the same man that approved the donation of 4 Ventilators, 2 Auto-analyzers, 13 Solar panels, 2 child warmers, 2 Phototherapy and 6 ICU beds for the fight against Covid-19 will come back to say there’s no Coronavirus in Nigeria?
He said from the testimonies of most Covid-19 survivors, one can point to the similarity of the virus to that of malaria. Most survivors were treated with Anti-malaria drugs and Malaria has been endemic in Nigeria for such a long time, and as such Nigerians have been immune to it.
He also echoed the sentiment of most Nigerians that the figures are highly doctored to facilitate corrupts officials in siphoning money, while calling on Federal Government to also provide grants to other States like they did to Lagos and Ogun to reduce tension.
Whether you believe it or not, people have sent their testimonies to the Church on how they were healed of Coronavirus, which was aired via Salvation TV and all media arms of the Church. The Church acknowledges the potency of the virus, and have on different occasions provided palliatives and aid to both State and Federal institutions in the Country to help in its fight against this global threat.
Finally, let’s try and free our hearts from hate. Religious Leaders, though cannot claim to be flawless, but are also not the problem of the common man. We gain nothing by trying to pull others down!

Nairaland moderators are highly biased. A thread was created to credit the Church for donating, it didn’t make front page. Another thread was created and the words of the MOG twisted, it made front page. Oh! I just remembered Seun is an atheist.
