Bishop Oyedepo, the President and head of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, otherwise known as Winners Chapel, has asked President Buhari to resign.
The pastor has said that the President is a non-performer and should honorably resign and get out of office.
This he says, is due to the insecurity facing the nation thanks largely to the Fulani Herdsmen who have laid waste to many lives in various parts of the nation.
In a YouTube video posted on the church’s account, Bishop Oyedepo was preaching a message called ‘Enough is Enough’ and he said: “When I was talking in 2015, people were saying my own was too much, now everybody can see what’s happening. What has moved forward in anybody’s life? You don’t know it’s war. Why are they attacking the Christian communities? Why has nobody been arrested? I can tell you this, the authorities and the powers that be are behind them.
“I will never be partisan; Jesus got me out of it in 1984. But I will not be alive to see innocent people massacred.”
Bishop Oyedepo went on to call the Fulani Herdsmen jihadists. he said; “We must wake up and push this evil back. Not one of those so-called herdsmen – they are jihadists – has been brought to book till date. Herdsmen don’t shoot; they have been here all along. They are just taking cover under the herdsmen to assault innocent citizens. They wake up in the night and slice innocent children to pieces. Yet, you have a government in place. What!
“The most honourable thing for any non-performing leader to do is to resign. The most honourable thing is to resign. That’s my own for Mr President. Resign! Get out of office! Even our Islamic friends in the North are calling on him (Buhari) to resign. Because that’s the noblest thing to do. Or are we going to look at one system destroy a whole nation?”
Bishop Oyedepo added that the proposed ranching system being proposed by the Federal Government is one that should be resisted by Nigerians.
“I’m going to say this and I’m not going to be tired. This (Nigeria) will never be a Fulani republic. That is not our terms of agreement. It will remain a secular nation till Jesus returns. It’s not just (about) land, it’s (about) heritage.
“Forever, I stand on the fact that no government has the authority to collect land from those who own it and transfer it to another person because on the other side (presumably the north), it never happens.”
Recall that the church called for a 7-day fast to pray for the terrorized soul of Nigeria
