David Oyedepo, has come under fire from a section of Nigerians for
making a declaration that Nigeria is moving forward despite the
challenges facing the country.
Bishop David Oyedepo was alleged to have
threatened to open the gate of hell on those opposing the former
president Goodluck Jonathan in the weeks leading up to the 2015 general
The founder of the Living Faith Church
(LFC), reportedly made the declaration in a telecast to the local and
international assembly of the church workers recently.
The bishop also said the emergence of
private tertiary institutions, championed by the church, has helped to
right moral codes in the country’s educational system as well as help to
eradicate cultism and activism.
But it appears the comments of Oyedepo
who was close to the administration of Goodluck Jonathan, has attracted
the ire of some Nigerians who have accused him of making empty promises
not backed by the bible.
Others attacked the bishop for running a private university that many of his church members cannot afford to send their kids to.
