Bishop David Oyedepo, the founder of Living Faith Church Worldwide, also known as Winners’ Chapel, has called for the President of Nigeria to resign.
Bishop David Oyedepo spoke to members of his church in Lagos about his concerns about Muhammadu Buhari not doing enough to curtail violence towards Christians in the West African nation. Stating the numerous killings going on in several parts of the country and the president’s neglect, the only way out is to resign.
“Even our Islamic friends in the north are calling for the president to resign. In his statement, he raised a question, “are we going to watch and see one system destroy a whole nation? Enough is enough.”
According to research by Christian Solidarity Worldwide, Muslim Fulani herder militia perpetrated at least 106 attacks on communities in central Nigeria in the first quarter of 2018 alone, claiming 1,061 lives.
He said Mr Buhari “is openly pursuing an anti-Christian agenda that has resulted in countless murders of Christians all over the nation and destruction of vulnerable Christian communities”.
Echoing this, Bishop David shared his advice to the Muslim president.
“The most honourable thing for any non-performing leader is to resign,” he said.
“That’s my word for Mr President – resign. Get out of the place.”
