“In Nigeria,we don’t have any state-of-the-art university. We don’t have any world class medical center. But do you know what we do have? We have state-of-the-art, world class, million-dollar churches. Now, don’t get me wrong, I am not saying praying for healing is a bad thing. We should all do it. But is it not better to be able to pray with your pastor and go and see a doctor as well? Isn’t that a better option?”
