Will I Be Elected? – Bishop Oyedepo Speaks On 2023 Presidency
Founder and spiritual leader of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, aka Winners’ Chapel, David Oyedepo, has reacted to a series of declarations by politicians as the 2023 general elections draw near.
Speaking specifically on the 2023 presidency, Oyedepo while addressing his congregation during the Easter service on Sunday, said he always knew Nigeria was heading for a waterloo under President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration.
Naija News understands that Oyedepo has been a critic of the incumbent government since the All Progressive Congress, APC assumed power in 2015.
In his submission yesterday, Oyedepo said God had confided in him that the country was not heading in the right direction with Buhari as the president.
Speaking on the emergence of aspirants from various parties ahead of the 2023 elections, Oyedepo said it baffles him that Nigerians are with short memories.
He said: “There are people God confides Himself in. Not because of their experience or age but because of their heart for Him.
“I knew Nigeria was heading for a waterloo. He confided in me. They are under torture.
“Somebody commented recently, you know why Bishop stopped? He shouted and shouted, but they didn’t hear.
“What will I ever get from it? Will I get elected from it?‘ Oyedepo asked.
“I knew that in 1984, there is no position on this earth that I will fight for. I have taken a strong position in Christ. Now they are going again, deceiving you, what a people with a short memory,” the cleric added.
