APC’s attack on Oyedepo, a new low

The APC has stooped to a new level of low, even by their standards, given the recent tirades from their camp and band of supporters against Bishop David Oyedepo of Living Faith Ministries Inc., following Sunday’s service which had President Jonathan in attendance.

In their desperate attempt to sway the electorate, they have vindictively alleged that the prominent cleric threatened to open the gates of hell on those who are opposed to the President and took to social media to respond irresponsibly to statements that they instigated, thereby prompting a string of messages criticizing the Bishop.

Contrary to the dubious and attention-seeking allegations, members of the church said the Bishop actually made the statement in reference to those opposing Nigeria and urged the church to pray for peace to reign in the country and for the conduct of a violence-free 2015 polls without a mention of the campaign for President Jonathan.

But still, the APC continue to peddle and encourage unfounded criticism against the cleric without so much as an independent clarification of the actual statements made.

All this, having not too long ago celebrated the sermon of the controversial Catholic priest, Rev. Fr. Matthew Mbaka who took to ranting to his congregation against President Jonathan.

The President however spoke only briefly during the service, commending the Bishop for his contributions towards educating the young ones and thanked the people for their prayers which he said will help the nation overcome its challenges.

“A number of people are predicting quite a number of things. But, I know that God Almighty is in control of our lives,

“The elections of next month will be peaceful and the nation will move in the direction that we want,” he said.

”I don’t want to talk too much before the say I came here to campaign,” the President said, eliciting laughter.

“I want to thank you for everything you have been doing.”
