‘I’m Dangerously Wealthy,’ Bishop Oyedepo Says Doesn’t Need Govt Patronage

The founder and presiding Bishop of the Living Faith Church Worldwide a.k.a Winners’ Chapel, David Oyedepo, has replied those suggesting that his criticism of President Muhammadu Buhari is because he’s not benefiting from his government.

Oyedepo had been criticised on social media over the remarks he recently made regarding rumours that President Buhari was “dead” and had been replaced by one Jubril Aminu Al-Sudani, a supposed clone of the president.

The Bishop had recently told worshipers at the Faith Tabernacle in Ota, Ogun State, during a Sunday service, that the information in circulation that a “clone” of President Buhari was occupying the Presidential Villa was worrisome.

But reacting, one of Buhari’s media aide, Tolu Ogunlesi faulted Oyedeop, saying: “I know the Bishop has always detested PMB (it’s a free world, really, the right to dislike anyone is guaranteed constitutionally atink), but I don’t understand why he keeps going this far to peddle/amplify (from the pulpit) falsehood and disinformation about him. Really puzzling.”

Some social media critics had also faulted the Bishop for criticising Buhari and allegedly endorsing a purportedly corrupt Atiku Abubakar for the 2019 presidency, suggesting that the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) may have induced the Bishop with money.

In reaction, Oyedepo said, “I don’t share any booty from any government. I have a clear conscience. I am dangerously wealthy. I am rich, whatever I want, comes. That’s what they call wealth.”

The Bishop made the statement at the opening session of the 2018 Shiloh exercise. The message was titled “Heralding the Dominion Era of the Church”.
