Founder of Synagogue Church of All Nations, Pastor Temitope Joshua, who was recently visited by a team of Nigerian health authorities over the spread of the deadly Ebola disease, has directed victims to stay in their countries.

Speaking on the deadly disease, Joshua 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,” Mr. Joshua announced on the church’s official website and Facebook page.
“Obey the law of your land and it shall be well with you. Obey the law of the land by not crossing the borders of your nation with Ebola virus,” he added.
Jide Idris, the Lagos State Commissioner of Health, who led Idris, in his address during interaction at the premises of the Church, said he visited the Church because of its recognition as an international Christian centre whose congregation comprise people from all over the world including the countries of the West African sub-region which have already been affected by the Ebola disease.
