*Bishop Oyedepo (left) and President Buhari whose government has been described as most wicked in Nigeria’s history
Apparently angry with the near lack of governance and direction, which have led to everything falling apart in the country with every section calling for restructuring and even secession, the Presiding Bishop of Living Faith Church Worldwide also known as Winners Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo, has described the regime of the President, Muhammadu Buhari as the worst and most wicked in the history of Nigeria.
Oyedepo while delivering a sermon during the second service of the church at the Faith Tabernacle, Ota, Ogun State said that the hate speech bill being sponsored by Senator Sabi Abdullahi of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC) was the most ridiculous bill anyone could think of. The bishop said while the government was seeking to criminalise hate speech, the Fulani herdsmen, bandits and Boko Haram insurgents who kill others at will are left to walk free on the streets of Nigeria as if Nigeria is a lawless country.
The angry man of God said, “The government in this country is making a draconian law – hate speech. They said if you speak hatefully, you have committed murder. Out of someone who says I will kill you and the one who kills, who has committed a crime? I don’t understand which kind of animal farm we live in. I said stop stepping on my toes and you said that is hate speech, but somebody kills, and he is walking free on the streets. This is the most stupid and nonsensical ideal anybody can think of. I said you are bad, and you said that is a crime. Must I say you are good when you are bad?
“In my view you are bad, and you shouldn’t be a leader. I have the right to say so. As far as I am concerned, I am a true born and thorough-bred Nigerian, an intelligent one. In my view this (Buhari’s government) is the worst thing that has happened to Nigeria —It is the worst and in fact it is like a curse. I have been here for some time and I led the first prayer and fasting for Nigeria in 1979. I am not a baby in the affairs of Nigeria. This is the worst government, a government with no direction. Their days are numbered. I can tell you as a prophet that their days are numbered.”
