The deadly Ebola virus has become such a dreaded disease that people are taking precautions to prevent and curb the virus from spreading. One of them is Prophet T.B. Joshua.

Prophet Temitope Joshua, ppopular preacher and founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations was recently visited by a team of Nigerian health officials over the spread of the Ebola virus. He in turn directed victims to stay in their countries.

The visit paid by a team of Federal and Lagos state health officials was aimed at curbing the influx of foreigners who are victims of the deadly virus and might be believers or members of his church. The visit was also aimed at sensitising the members of his large congregation abouth the deadly virus as well as persons from the infected countries in their midst. 

Dr. Jide Idris, the Lagos state commissioner for health led the officials to the Synagogue church which as a headquarter, is one of the most populated churches in the city of Lagos, and is known in many countries in the world for miracles and is a popular destination for sick people and others who need divine healing. Hence, the need for the visit in order to fore-warn the synagogue prophet of the dangers of allowing Ebola victims seeking for healing into his country and into his church. 

 "We have our strategies that we intend to share with you. Again, we need to know the resources you have here because whether it is one or two cases, if they are allowed to get out, it is a major problem. We are here to work together on how to contain this disease". Dr. Idris told the prophet.

He also went on to say that the federal and state governments are working hard in the prevention of the virus from getting into the country, and so, because of the population of the congregation of the Synagogue as well as the influx of people, and the fact that he has some people from the West African sub-region as members, there might be the need to check people as well as raise the awareness of how deadly this disease is in order to enlighten the church, especially on other things such as prevention measures. Professor Adulsalami Nasiidi, the director of Nigeria Center for Disease Control (NCDC) who was one of the officials sent on this mission was also of the same opinion.

The commissioner mentioned that the visit is meant to sensitize faith- based organisations on the importance and need to co operate with the government in the prevention of the spread,as well as educating the worshippers to report health issues.

Taking cue from that, the famous prophet tried to advise victims and patients not to move from their country in search of him for healing. Speaking on the disease, he said "What makes you a good citizen makes you a good christian. There is a general law in every country that binds against Ebola victims from crossing borders" . The prophet announced on the official website pages of the church. 

"Obey the law of your land and it shall be well with you. Obey the law of the lamd by not crossing the borders of your nation with Ebola virus" He added.

The prophet T.B. Joshua  is famous for his claims of using divine powers to heal all kinds of ailments as well as to perform deliverances from diseases and demons. This has prompted sick people from across Africa and the world to regularly flood his church. 

"We are here to engage you positively. we know the powers of this House and your powers and we are duty-bound to protect you and your congregation. We have no doubt concerning the power God has given you; we cant do that, but we want to help make it work stronger". Prof. Nasidi, Director, Centre for Disease Control, one of the officials made this statement.

Meanwhile, the Federal and state government are still struggling to make sure that this deadly disease does not spread more than it already has. A reported case of a doctor having the Ebola virus makes it the second time we would hear of an Ebola incident in Nigeria. The doctor, which was said to have treated the late Patrick Sawyer, the American-Liberian who was infected with the disease, is not the only case. There are reportedly three other cases showing symptoms of the Ebola virus, and these three are among the eight who were quarantined, which are in turn among the about seventy which were feared to have come in contact or crossed paths with Sawyer.
