Gospel According to Johnson Suleman


Funke Olaode

The General Overseer of the popular Auchi, Edo State-based Omega Fire Ministries International (OFM), Apostle Johnson Suleman is one of the leading Christian clerics who does not mind firing direct salvos at the leadership of the country.
He has been particularly critical of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari. In the days leading to the 2015 presidential election and after the election was lost and won, he clearly showed his support for former President Goodluck Jonathan.

Suleman, whose ministry has 49 branches spread across Africa and Europe, insists that men of God should dabble into the affairs of a country in a bid to participate in the process that will guarantee peace, social and economic progress. Preachers, he said, should not only be concerned about preaching sermons but also to generate ideas for transformation and national growth within the ambit of God’s commandments.

As a popular figure in the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Suleman who would rather not be dragged into its crisis, particularly the leadership tussle that almost tore it apart before the last election, but he agrees that reforming CAN is a good idea.

Fondly called ‘God’s Oracle’ by his followers, Suleman believes that things should be done with the spirit of excellence. Suleman is known for encouraging Christian leaders to push for positive change in the society.

At his church’s recent 12th Holy Ghost Convention, there were manifestation of healing on every side and special miracles. This is a continuation of the ongoing Raw Power miracle, prophetic and healing world crusades which also took him to the American city of Philadelphia.
A very busy man, he strikes a good balance between the ministry and his family by creating time for his family.
