According to him, one of the most frustrating things about being a disabled person in Nigeria is that everyone who sees you feels they have the call to heal you.

Debola seems to be addressing issues where pastors intend to heal the sick even when they know it is impossible. He said that the name of Jesus is being used by pastors to command disabled people like himself to stand up and walk but in most cases, the miracle does not happen.

He said that the use of God’s name with intention to heal the sick but fails makes God looks bad.
