Coronavirus: Oyedepo Tackles Buhari Govt For Shutting Down Schools, Malls




The General Overseer of Living Faith Chruch, also known as Winners Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo, has berated the Muhammadu Buhari-led administration over moves to tackle coronavirus.

Naija News reports that most states alongside the federal government had ordered the closure of schools to contain the spread of COVID-19.

The Lagos State Government also ordered the cancellation of any gathering with more than 20 persons in attendance.

But, Oyedepo who held a service on Sunday and shunned government directive on religious gatherings, condemned government decision to close down schools.

Oyedepo said: “May God help our policymakers to make the right decision in finding the solution to this scourge called Coronavirus.

“How can you close schools and ask them to go home.

“You are sending them for where they are more secured to where they would be exposed to the disease.

“You are sending them away from where they are not more than 20 back home to go and sell pepper for their mothers in the market where there are more people.

“You block people from having access to malls in the name of preventing disease but you don’t know that the only disease that doesn’t have cure is hunger.

“May God help our leaders to make the right decision in search of a solution to this pandemic.”
