Bishop David Oyedepo, General Overseer of Living Faith Church Worldwide has countered the advice earlier given by Paul Adefarasin who told his followers to have a Plan B regarding their stay in the country in case things get worst in the country.
Oyedepo in his sermon yesterday told his congregation at the church’s headquarters in Ota, Ogun State, that though things are bad in the country, he will not flee.
He said: “If there is a crisis in this nation, I will be the last to leave here.
“Don’t rob nobody, don’t cheat on anyone. Don’t outsmart your business partners. Don’t swear falsely. Don’t take bribes. Favour is the companion of all that fear God and favour shall be your companion from now.
“Flowing in favour demands the doing of righteousness. You know there is the appropriation of righteousness that people emphasise today, but don’t be deceived, he that doeth righteousness is righteous. The doing righteousness: favour!
“There was an explosion of favour, until the time that his word came. The word of the Lord tried him.”
His comments came shortly after Pastor Paul Adefarasin of House on the Rock asked his members to have a plan B regarding their stay in Nigeria.
Adefarasin said Nigerians should have escape plans out of the country should things degenerate.
Adefarasin was quoted as saying, “No country in the world history has ever survived two civil wars. You could be in fright and running for your dear life any day from now if this thing does not come to an end.
“My personal encouragement to leaders and government on all sides is that it is not time to be partisan. It is time to sit down and dialogue.
“I urge you all to have a plan B and start making moves on how to leave this country. I know you have faith, I have faith too but I have a plan B.
“With technology, I can speak to you from anywhere in the world.
“Get yourself a plan B. Whether that’s an Okada to Cameroon or a flying boat to Seme Border. Do whatever you can to see you leave this country.
“Just get your plan B because these people are crazy. The leaders we have, they are all a bunch of jokers.”
