I was invited for a peace meeting, not Atiku’s endorsement — Oyedepo

Bishop David Oyedepo said on Sunday that he did not endorse the Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party Alhaji Atiku Abubakar for the 2019 presidential election.

Oyedepo, who is the President of the Living Faith Church, aka Winners Chapel, said he was invited to former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s residence for a peace parley.

He made disclosure during a Sunday church service in Canaan Land Ota, Ogun State yesterday.

He said: “I am aware Winners are in every political party in Nigeria but I don’t belong to any party. I was only invited to make peace. I don’t force myself on people because I am too busy.”

He, however, lamented the rising rate of killings in some parts of the country especially in Plateau State.

His words: “The recent killings in Plateau State is a moral assault on our nation. Nobody is qualified to be morally right, if he does not have feelings for loss of lives. I know how many times I cried over the killings in Nigeria. Some people claimed responsibility and nothing happened to them.

“The effect of the 30 months civil war is still with us. We won’t see war again in Nigeria. Those who want to see it, will be cut down.”
