Oyedepo hates Buhari – Femi Adesina

Femi Adesina

Femi Adesina, special adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on media and publicity, on Tuesday said clergyman Bishop David Oyedepo is “blinded by hatred” for President Buhari.

Mr Adesina’s tweet followed a scathing remark Oyedepo made on Sunday against the Buhari administration.

At his church’s headquarters in Ota, Ogun State, Oyedepo described Buhari’s government as the most wicked and corrupt in the history of Nigeria.

The bishop of Living Faith Church Worldwide said the Federal Government claimed to be fighting corruption, but its officials are very corrupt.

He added that the N80 billion allegedly laundered by the accountant-general of the federation, Ahmed Idris, would be enough to meet the demands of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU). Oyedepo erroneously called Idris auditor-general.

Reacting to the cleric’s comments, Adesina said “The bishop at Ota can’t even get his facts right. Blinded by hatred for PMB, he says Auditor-General stole N80bn.

“Pity! He doesn’t know the difference between Accountant-General (only alleged) and Auditor-General. Like OBJ said long ago, we should begin to ordain our own bishops.”

Oyedepo also boasted that terrorists cannot attack his church. He was reacting to the attack by gunmen on St. Francis Catholic Church in Owo, Ondo State on June 5 where at least 40 worshippers were killed.
