Bishop Oyedepo who is the General Overseer of Living Faith Worldwide Outreach aka Winners Chapel is a respected minister of the gospel who has touched many lives.
The federal government had banned open worship and a gathering of over 50 people from the 20th of March, 2020 as one of the measures to reduce the spread of the dreaded coronavirus.
Against this instruction, Bishop Oyedepo reportedly held a church service today with over 1,000 members in attendance which is clear disobedience of the government’s instruction and even gave PROPHETIC DECLARATIONS. While his followers and other Christians are in support of this saying that God is greater than Coronavirus, others see this as endangering the lives of many and should not be tolerated.
A particular twitter user said “
“Winning the war against the plague of COVID-19” but he’s frustrating our efforts in this unanimous war by gathering thousands of people against government policy. You speak about “winning the war..” but you’re actually the mole in our camp!”
Another user said “I am a winners member and i strongly detest the fact that despite the world epidemic and cases recorded in Nigeria (LAGOS) my pastor Oyedepo still went ahead and held a service in a 50k seater auditorium… If there are any new cases traced to Winners, Oyedepo should be sanctioned”
Please share your thoughts on this, should the Federal Government sanction Bishop Oyedepo or is he greater than the law?
