“2023 A NULLITY” SO SAYS “BISHOP DAVID OYEDEPO”- “Never will APC rule Nigeria again”.

Seems like you cannot remove religion from Politics and the power of it would be showcased glaringly come 2023 general elections. Let's wait and see!

Bishop David Oyedepo isn’t just one of the wealthiest men of God in the world, fact is that he is also the founder of one of Nigeria’s and Africa’s biggest congregations and by that alone, he is also a man of great and important influence.

His followers, who are his unwavering and vociferous supporters are in their tens of millions in and outside our shores.

And the thing is that they hold on to their (Daddy or Papa’s) every words, like they have actually heard commandments and directions from the God Himself. That’s quite staggering to say the least!

So when this highly influential, scorching and point-blank ‘presiding pastor of the Living Faith Church’ aka “Winners Chapel worldwide” makes any pronouncements, either directly or indirectly, his followers both in his immediate church and even outside his church, and by that we mean including affiliates, they would more often than not, follow without any reservations whatsoever, whatever he suggests and even dictates!

And so when he made a ‘profound pronouncement’ very recently stating that unequivocally that- “Never will APC rule Nigeria again”, it got major attention and that has stirred the hornets nest vigorously and stirred feathers too and those he pointed accusing fingers at- here referring to the APC, had better not discard his pronouncement as nothing or unimportant as it would be to their own peril!

Atleast a million to 2m votes or more is actually no joke! If he would demand that his followers shouldn’t vote for a particular candidate or party but should vote for another, that can count for a whole lot.

The flag-bearer for the APC for the Presidential election come 2023 is none other than “Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Adekunle Tinubu, the Jagaban Borgu”. So if Bishop David Oyedepo has said never again to the APC, then he is also referring to the Asiwaju by extension.

Are these his own words or what he can say without fear or favour that he heard from the God?

Bishop Oyedepo has never hidden his total dislike for the APC and by extension all of those in the party. So whenever he has had the opportunity he has never minced words in stating it as he sees it.

The Labour Party’s Presidential candidate, in the person of the former Governor of Anambra State, Peter Gregory Obi not too long ago visited the influential man of God and he was very well received with open arms. In a way, that may have said to many where the man of God’s support is leaning towards. And there are other very prominent pastors with outstanding followership also likes of David Ibiyeomie of Salvation Ministries, Paul Enenche of Dunamis International, Biodun Fatoyinbo of COZA and many others, who would also gladly tow the line of their mentor- Bishop David Oyedepo.

And also “Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye of RCCG” who is congregations alone must be the largest in Nigeria, must also be factored into the equation too, 1st he is a spiritual father to Bishop Oyedepo and then remember again too, that his spiritual son and a pastor under him, in the person of the VP Prof. Yemi Osibanjo had vied to carry the flag of the APC in the Presidential election for 2023 but was very well defeated by Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

So much like they all would have loved to say that the church isn’t partisan in anyway, it’s all just a smokescreen from their body language!

And then to now rub salt on the wound again, the APC candidate either by a mistake or what could count to be a genius stroke by him at the end of the day, is relying on a Moslem-Moslem ticket which via our primordial sentiments alone may just be a terrible mistake on the part of the APC and her candidate.

Speaking very strongly at his church recently, Bishop Oyedepo reminded the congregation that he had warned in 2015 against voting for the APC.

He then went further to say “It is now clear that when the wicked rule, the people mourn”.

He then went further again to say-

“I shouted this in 2015. I am not a propagandist. I am not a public speaker. I am not an activist. I am a prophet. You blindly went and brought in this wicked government”.

“Nigeria has never suffered evil like this in our history. And they still want to rule?


“After over 50 people were slaughtered, there has been no response till now. They are evil from head to toe. “

From all these unbridled vituperations above, does it then mean that the APC quest come 2023 is in jeopardy?
