Two prominent programme channels belonging to popular VLogger, Maureen Badejo, has been brought down by YouTube. A famous televangelist and general overseer of the Omega Fire Ministries, Apostle Johnson Suleman, had few months ago, complained to the Google-owned video sharing platform of Badejo’s consistent attacks on his (Suleman’s) personality and his evangelism works using YouTube platform. The man of God later approached the law court to compel YouTube including Badejo and others for redress. YouTube, in a written apology tagged ‘Outcome of Investigation’ to Suleman and seen by this medium, said; “Our internal team has completed their review and have taken appropriate actions in accordance with our policies, including the removal of videos that were found to violate our community guidelines. This has resulted in the termination of the channels, GIOTV Foundation and Maureenbadejosblog TV for violating our harassment and cyber-bullying policy. We hope that the confirmation of this policy enforcement may reduce some distress that has been caused to you, your family and your community. YouTube takes harassment very seriously and appreciates your collaboration to help keep our community safe.” In the lawsuit Number HIG/41/2021 instituted on Tuesday 14th of December, 2021 by Suleman’s legal counsel, Samuel Amune (Esq) of Omega Chambers, Apostle Suleman had asked the court for an order restraining Badejo and others from further defaming him while he asked YouTube to take down some hateful and disparaging materials published by Badejo and others via its platform. While demanding the sum of $1bn (one billion US Dollars) as restitution for the embarrassment and public odium the publications had caused him, Apostle Suleman also asked the court to compel the defendants to make video apologies and place a written apology for the offensive comments. Maureen, London based, has regularly been using her social media platforms tohaul insults at notable men of God, including Pastor Enoch Adeboye of RCCG, Apostle Johnson
Popular human rights lawyer, Barrister Festus Keyamo, has withdrew his services as counsel to the publisher of Sahara Reporters, Omoyele Sowore in the pending lawsuit instituted against Sowore by the founder of Omega Fire Ministries (OFM), Apostle Johnson Suleman at the Lagos state high court, Ikeja judicial division. Apostle Suleman had dragged Sowore to court for libel, seeking payment of damages to the tune of N1bn (one billion naira only). According to Suleman in his statement on oath, Sahara Reporters, which is Sowore’s online publication, published libelous materials against the man of God in March 2017, a defamatory publication that was given wide publicity, with the sole aimed to injure the reputation of Apostle Suleman. The matter which is pending before Justice Lawal Akapo has witnessed several twists and turns. Only recently, Keyamo filed a motion of preliminary objection asking the court to strike out the suit for lack of jurisdiction. He claimed that Apostle Suleman sued Sowore instead of Sahara Reporters. However, Osa Director (Esq), counsel to Apostle Suleman, averred that his client is at liberty to sue either Sowore or Sahara Reporters, or both parties jointly. Osa, therefore, prayed the judge to dismiss the application with substantial cost awarded against the defendant, Sowore, as he described the application as frivolous, lacking in merit, and a calculated attempt to waste the precious time of the court. In his ruling, Justice Akapo dismissed the preliminary objection and awarded a cost of twenty five thousand naira against the defendant. After the ruling which was described by Osa Director as ‘delivered with the clinical efficiency of a legal surgeon’, Keyamo tendered a letter before Justice Akapo seeking to withdraw his legal services to Sowore forthwith in the matter. It is unclear why Keyamo threw in the towel. Meanwhile, the trial of the matter has been set for June 2022.
Famous man of God, Apostle Johnson Suleman, has once again exhibited his gift for improving the lives of others by building, and donating a 7-apartment lodge, for members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) in Edo State. The building of the apartment blocks, we gathered, was jointly funded by Apostle Suleman and his wife, Reverend (Mrs.) Lizzy Suleman. While speaking at the handover ceremony of the blocks on Tuesday, March 29, 2022, the ‘Restoration Apostle’ declared that he and his wife mooted the idea to ease the accommodation challenges most corps members were facing, reiterating that giving is, to him, a privilege that comes with a sense of duty. “Donating to causes that one cares about does not only benefit the recipients, it can be deeply rewarding for the giver too, because of the fact that the gestures have positive effects on people’s lives,” noted the servant of God who is currently in Maryland, United States on a soul-winning crusade. Apostle Suleman who is the senior pastor and founder of the Omega Fire Ministries (OFM) has continued to impact lives positively through preaching and worship as well as donating charitably. He says he, particularly, loves giving to charity on a regular basis because he wants to make a difference and have a lasting, positive impact on others which can make them feel happier and more fulfilled.
Senior Pastor of Omega Fire Ministries, Apostle Johnson Suleman, has added more to the list of his charitable gestures by building a medical centre to care for members of the public at the cheapest fee. Called ‘OFM Medical Center’, one of the doctors in charge, Dr. Ifijeh Patrick, said that the hospital will offer both antenatal and delivery services at a 50 percent discount, as Apostle Suleman would settle the 50 percent balance. “It provides professional healthcare services to Nigerians at very affordable rates, in fact, what makes this medical center very remarkable is that it provides world class healthcare to Nigerians, especially those who cannot afford these services, Ifijeh stated. The hospital project is one of the activities planned to celebrate Apostle Suleman’s 51st birthday which comes up this week Thursday, 24th of March, 2022, and it is his regular way of displaying the fact that his evangelism is not just about providing spiritual solutions to healthcare issues but also empowering and providing several humanitarian services in healthcare. Also, Apostle Suleman launched a restaurant where about 1000 people are being fed daily. This second generous initiative called Joliz Kitchen, was declared open on Saturday 19th of March, 2022. According to the servant of God, Joliz Kitchen will help cushion the effect of the biting economic conditions plaguing the people as “we have a duty to help many families have access to both quality healthcare and food to survive.”
The founder and senior Pastor of the Omega Fire Ministries (OFM) worldwide; Apostle Johnson Suleman, has encouraged persons with internal drive towards a vision or destination not to be dispirited by antics of the devil. Suleman, whose 51st birthday celebration comes up on Thursday 24th of March, 2022, advised true Christians with divine missions not to quit but continue to be change agents irrespective of plots by evil-minded people. The teaching by the ‘The Restoration Apostle’, as Suleman is fondly addressed, hints at the fact that all spiritual leaders do face attack, both spiritual and physical, but the devil especially loves to bring down men with visions and missions. “Not only are you attacked from within, but you are constantly being bombarded from the outside because the devil is seeking to destroy you through your sense of sight, thus you must valiantly face the challenges, however formidable, in order to live out your faith,” he opined. His words; “The biggest promise God gave to Abraham was to address the biggest challenge in his life. The value of a star is in its shining. The interest of God in a man's life is what arouses the interest of the devil. The more prophetic word on a man’s life, the more battles he will experience,” the cleric stated, adding that “the devil is not really angry at man, but he is angry at the assignment God has sent him, and anytime the devil attacks an individual, it's to question what God has said about the individual.” While urging spiritual leaders not to be weary, Apostle Suleman reminded them that the key to a prevailing church or nation is having the right spirit in place, warning that Hell has unleashed a coordinated assault against spiritual leaders and, therefore, men of God should protect themselves with the shield of prayer if

Hundreds of participants seeking divine restoration thronged of the crusade tagged ‘Mighty Turnaround’. The Accra programme is one of the series of globalsoul-winning and life restoring campaigns championed by Suleman to direct attention to Jesus Christ. Via the OFM’s broadcasting arm, Celebration TV, thecrusade, as usual, is being beamed live to a global audience, with believers acrossAmerica, Europe, Asia and Africa, sharing in the blessing. As the crusade progresses to come to an end today, many souls are said to be making decisions to accept Jesus as their saviour, while many more areresponding to the Gospel and wonderful miracles that are happening. “We are having an incredible move of God,” declared an elated participant, adding that it is hard to adequately describe how miraculous the events happening in Accra are. Meanwhile, few hours before Apostle Suleman mounted the podium for the Monday teaching, prayers and blessings, the ‘Restoration Apostle’, paid a courtesy call to the presidential palace, the Golden Jubilee House, where he met with President Nana Akufo-Addo and his deputy, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia. At the meeting which was also witnessed by other senior Ministers of OFM like Revr. Kingsley Aigbe; Revr. Fidelis Ayemoba and Pastor Divine Omoregie, Apostle Suleman commended the leadership style of President Akufo-Addo, describing him as a man of faith. He then assured his hosts of his continuous resolve to offer prayers for positive transformation for the leadership and people of Ghana.
*Open Free Food Restaurant to Feed 50,000 Persons Yearly Sunday, February 6th 2022 was a day of dance, praise and unlimited joy for members of the Omega Fire Ministries (OFM) worldwide, as they celebrated the ministry’s the 18th year of spreading the gospel across the world. For the august occasion spearheaded by the founder and senior pastor, Apostle Johnson Suleman and his beautiful wife, Reverend (Mrs.) Lizzy Suleman, all members, old and and young were beautifully dressed in different yet colourful attires. The choristers also were in their best elements as they sang out their hearts just as the church’s main auditorium was filled to the brim. Ahead of the songs and dance, the congregation was charged into a protracted prayer session by Apostle Suleman who is fondly addressed as ‘The Restoration Apostle’ while at every interval, the congregation broke into aggressive praise and worship sessions. Along with the OFM’s partners and friends who joined in the celebration of the momentous occasion, Apostle and Reverend Lizzy Suleman who dressed elegantly in their best, later cut the cake to mark the anniversary. As they jointly cut the giant cake, the servant of God reminisced on the journey, positing that 18 years was certainly a reason to rejoice as it means much more to him and members of the OFM given the countless lives God has touched through his leadership as well as the faithful prayers, love, sacrifice and giving. Meanwhile, Apostle Suleman has taken his act of charity to another remarkable level. He is launching a restaurant where people of all categories will be fed for free. While announcing the new project during the OFM’s ‘Ebenezer 2022’ programme, the servant of God said “feeding the poor for free is the right way to use money rather than throwing money around.” According to him, the declaration is not just an evangelical promotional slogan, but a revelation of the heart of God and
With its epochal healing and life restoring crusade tagged ‘Wonders Without Numbers’, Omega Fire Ministries (OFM) worldwide, the restorative ministry of Apostle Johnson Suleman, has continued to record hundreds of thousands testimonies. From last year December till Saturday January 1, 2022 when it kicked off the New Year edition aptly titled ‘Hand of God’, shouts of joy and renewed hope have been filling the air as a blast of God’s healing power ripples through the multitude and breaking physical and regulatory barriers across countries of the world. It is, therefore, not surprising that the OFM has become a hub of hope, miracles, and outstanding testimonies for believers who regularly participate in the healing programmes. At the ongoing programme, many testified of various kinds of healing. One of the participants spoke of the financial miracle he experienced after watching the programme on the television on January 14. “I decided to check my account balance after watching ‘Wonders Without Numbers’ and I noticed that the sum of N368, 000 had been deposited from my former place of work that I was not even expecting at all.” Another participant, Timilehin, who resides in Germany, said; ‘I want to thank God for helping me with my city registration in Germany. After so much administrative delay, I began to mention this case whenever I joined the (OFM) prayer meeting. And to my surprise, the certificate I was told that I still needed to sign some documents for and had to bring an interpreter along with me for the collection, was sent to me by post without the need for further signatory or the interpreter.” In his testimony, Chidera from Lagos, praised God through the healing from a severe waist pain he suffered from soccer training. According to him, he was unable to breathe well but on Friday morning
Of all the mysteries that shouldn’t be mysteries, why most churches remain small is perhaps the greatest. Probably, there are a few church leaders who want to keep their ministry small, or who don’t care about growth. But the Senior Pastor at the Omega Fire Ministries (OFM) worldwide, Apostle Johnson Suleman, is making a difference. Aside from speaking regularly about upholding faith and holiness which has caused his ministry’s phenomenal growthacross nations of the world, he is one of the few servants of God who actually want to reach more people, who want to see their mission fully realised, byreaching as many people as possible through sheer giving. On Sunday the 9th of January 2022, a middle-aged woman who has served as the family cook for ten years, was all of a sudden during the day’s service called out and handed the documents of a house! According to a witness, the woman was so shocked she could not laugh nor cry at the blessing as she reportedly went down in appreciating the servant of God. Apostle Suleman, while handing over the house documents, stated that the woman has been his house cook for over 10 years without blemish. Besides, he emphasised, she contacted the Anointing from him, offers prayers and prophesies accurately to people and also holds crusades across Edo State, her base. Apostle Suleman said that the house given to the woman was originally given to the church through one of the woman’s successful divine missions. His words; “Recently, the cook held a crusade in Agenebode town in Edo State. During the crusade, she called out a woman and prophesied accurately to the woman about her daughter who is based in the US and gave her a prophetic word and prayed for a seven-fold restoration. And God honoured her words and the prophecy came to pass. Following the prophecy, the US based daughter and her mother decided to bless the church with the house.” Giving his reason for
Nothing is as beautiful as a man of God going beyond the pulpit to shower love on the people especially during the festive season. He is actually making them have the feeling that they are indeed valued and that God loves them. A few days before Christmas 2021, servant of God and Senior Pastor at the Omega Fire Ministries (OFM) worldwide, Apostle Johnson Suleman, began with his regular sharing of love by blessing members of the public with various kinds of gifts including cash, foods and expensive materials. As one of the God-given Christian leaders, Suleman has always engaged in charitable giving which undeniably is a huge motivating factor that spurs many to give. Such an act from men of God like Suleman is also a big reason why individual giving in Nigeria has continued to rise despite the country’s slow economy. He did not stop at that, a day before Christmas, Apostle Suleman had visited hospitals in Edo State where the headquarters of his Ministry is located, to pray for the sick for quick and divine healing while he also donated millions in cash for their treatment and restoration afterwards. Also, a day after Christmas, a young boy born with sealed lips enjoyed the mercy of God through Suleman who prayed and have the boy’s lips open, to the shouts of Hallelujah by worshippers at the capacity-filled post-Christmas special service at the OFM headquarters. Asked what informs his passion for regular giving, the ‘Restoration Apostle’ posited that, “God wants to love the world through us and the world needs to experience God’s love through us. Love is our propelling force, love is our heartbeat, it powers every move, every action and inaction. Love is the express reflection of God’s heart. That should explain why we make sharing our priority.” Outside charity, Apostle Suleman
