Is this a typical case of healer heal thyself?
In his heydays or better still the heydays of his then quite popular ministries, he was one of those pastors (men of God (god) then that was larger than life, who was seen or perceived as an enigma of a sort.
He bestrode the pulpit like a colossus, preaching his brand of prosperity message with strong point. He was dashing in his well sewn, well starched, properly worn outfits, selling his style of the gospel and maybe because of his dexterity of delivery and his obvious gift of the garb, he had tens of thousands, some claimed hundreds of thousands, maybe millions of followers around the globe-Nigeria, USA, UK, South Korea etc. He was a miracle ditching pastor, a prosperity message preacher, who always spoke about his conviction with outspoken & enlightened pride.
In those days he was one of the more popular televangelists of note. He actually walked what he preached, as a then prosperity minister, who comfortably cruised around with the array of the lastest machines on wheels then, that used to dazzle all comers. Those machines then had numbers like Zoe 1, 2, 3 etc with all the trappings & security personnel surrounding him, all armed and more all about him. He was the ultimate flamboyant preacher. When he came anywhere, it was like the President or king or Governor himself was the one visiting. There were those then, who used to wonder about how come the God was somewhat partial to some and blessed them with far more than they needed, with such abundance, while others were just struggling to patch it up and make ends meet.
To be on TV and regularly at that too, is not chicken feed at all. So one must understand the kind of money that could have gone into being a popular TV person then, the way Pastor Anwuzia then was.
But fast forward now to a few years afterwards, to about a decade or more now and so shocking to see that things have since gone totally south so quickly and maybe terribly too! The ministry, the church has since gone under and none existent, not to be heard again or just in whispers.
Alas, the same very popular man of God, who was a delight to watch as he did his thing then, a contemporary of the late equally flamboyant Rev./Apostle Gabriel Oduyemi of the Bethel Ministries Wonder City, Lekki, one who supposedly had the gift of impartation and other gifts/virtues that helped others is now unbelievably at the receiving end! No more Zoe ministry and then his health has fallen terribly, with him supposedly having liver & kidney problems and having the need to be flown abroad for urgent top class medical attention!
It hasn't been an easy time for many years for Pastor Anwuzia. A few years back, it was claimed then that assassins went after him reasons for that wasn't clear & now it's a debilitating health issue that he is battling majorly to survive, while it is claimed he is bedridden.
