“I have never belonged to any political party and will never belong to one.” – Bishop Oyedopo
The General Overseer of Winners’ Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo, has explained his role in PDP presidential candidate, Atiku Abubakar’s visit to former President Olusegun Obasanjo in Abeokuta.
The bishop who was criticized by some Nigerians for his presence at the reconciliation meeting. However on Sunday. Oyedepo, said he is an apolitical and peace-seeking leader.
He said “I have never belonged to any political party and will never belong to one. Wherever parties you are in, that is where I am in.
There is no party without winners in it, if you get to any party and you don’t see any winner in it, you better check out of there, even the one that has not being formed winners are there. Our goal is to secure the glorious destiny of our nation by paying whatever price it requires. I have never taken any dime from any political candidate in my life, I am a mediator.
The price of peace is far cheaper than the cost of war so what we are saying is let us talk this over don’t let us exchange blows. Let us be mature and be sincere, let’s give chance to reason and let the wicked turn from their wicked ways. We have to do it by appealing to people’s reasoning, does anybody here wants to see war? The 30 months war we fought, the effect keeps lingering, you won’t see war again in the name of Jesus.”
