Bishop David Oyedepo of Winners Chapel has never hidden his emotion toward the government of President Buhari as he described Buhari’s Government operating under a curse.
The Cleric described the administration of Buhari as the worst in the history of Nigeria, adding its days were numbered.
Bishop Oyedepo disclosed this during the church’s service at its international headquarters in Ota, Ogun State on Sunday, as revealed by Punch news
He lamented about the incessant killings of Innocent People in Nigeria and the Government do nothing about it but make haste to criminalise hate speech.
The Punch also quoted him to have said: “The government in this country is making a draconian law – hate speech. They said if you speak hatefully, you have committed murder. Out of someone who says I will kill you and the one who kills, who has committed a crime? I don’t understand which kind of animal farm we live in.
“I said stop stepping on my toes and you said that is hate speech but somebody kills, and he is walking free on the streets. This is the most stupid and nonsensical ideal anybody can think of.
“I said you are bad and you said that is a crime. Must I say you are good when you are bad?
“In my view you are bad and you shouldn’t be a leader. I have the right to say so. As far as I am concerned, I am a true born and thoroughly-bred Nigerian, an intelligent one. In my view, this is the worst thing that has happened to Nigeria — this government. It is the worst and in fact, it is like a curse.
“I have been here for some time and I led the first prayer and fasting for Nigeria in 1979. I am not a baby in the affairs of Nigeria. This is the worst government, a government with no direction. Their days are numbered. I can tell you as a prophet that their days are numbered,” he said.
Bishop Oyedepo appeared to be one of the social critics of Buhari’s government and by criminalise the hate speech, he may be caught in the wed.
