Gloria Doyle, A Gospel singer, actress and entrepreneur, lay helpless at the Intensive Care Unit of the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH), Ikeja, Lagos.

She said,
“Unfortunately, I was down financially and the hospitals were asking for N1 million for the surgery. I was like ‘N1 million? Where am I going to get that?’ So, I went to meet my pastor, Pastor Chris Okotie and requested for financial assistance of N1 million, but he declined. Later, the situation started deteriorating, so I went back to him again, and to my utmost shock, he said that he didn’t know me from Adam and so he couldn’t do anything for me. I was shattered! I was like ‘how did I get here? How could my pastor in whose ministry I believed so much leave me in the lurch?’ I was totally stunned.

Pastor Okotie reacts

Reacting to Gloria Doyle’s allegation of disowning and not willing to assist her, Pastor Chris Okotie has insisted that the singer is not a member of his church.

His spokesman, Mr Ladi Ayodeji said, Okotie who is the pastor at Household of God Church, Ikeja, Lagos, said that though, Gloria Doyle might have worshiped in his church on some occasions like many people do, he couldn’t recollect seeing her in church for many years.

“Gloria Doyle is not a member of the Household of God. She might have worshipped there on some occasions like many people who come in sometimes and go. Personally, I haven’t seen her in church for many years.

But she is definitely not a member. Moreover, I don’t know her at all and it is not true that she was ignored, because she made no contact with me. Nevertheless, we feel sorry for her present predicament and we’ll uphold (her) in prayer,” he said.

According to Gloria Doyle, she has contacted a hospital in the United States of America and plans are ongoing to get referral letters so she can travel as soon as possible. However, she needs the assistance of all people of goodwill.

She said,
“We have already contacted a hospital in the US and they are asking for $20,000 and I don’t have that. Now, we need referral letters from Nigeria and that is what we are working on now. However, I don’t have $20,000 and that is why I am using this medium to reach out to Nigerians to come to my assistance. Please, Nigerians I am in dire straits, don’t let me die,” 

she pleads. Gloria Doyle needs help fast as her doctors have warned that unless something is done pretty soon, her chances of surviving are very slim.

“As I speak to you, I am very scared! The doctors have told me that if I don’t have the surgery in the next one of two months, I may not survive. I don’t want to die. Nigerians, please come to my aid,” 

she pleads writhing in pains.

Meanwhile, kind-hearted Nigerians who want to assist Gloria Doyle can pay into her account number at GT Bank 0131748777.
