Winner Chapel General Overseer, Oyedepo Breaks Silence On Leaked Audio

Bishop David Oyedepo, Presiding Bishop of the Living Faith Church, has responded to a viral audio clip purported to be a conversation between him and Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate in the recent election.

According to the Daily Trust, Oyedepo reacted on Sunday morning while speaking at his church headquarters in Ogun state.

This comes just hours after a news platform published an audio recording in which Obi allegedly told Oyedepo that the presidential election in 2023 would be a religious war.

Oyedepo stated that as a man of God, he has never campaigned for any politician in any election in this country. The bishop claimed that he has never canvassed support from any group for any politician seeking for public seat.

Hear him, “Nobody had ever told me what to say in this world. No. I have never campaigned for anybody or spoken on anybody’s behalf and I will not do that till I go to heaven. No (political) party in this country didn’t come to me for prayers and advice.

I advised them, some, they didn’t take. Those who chose to take it, they see results; those who said no, they are going about it (laughs). If you still come again, I will still tell you, it doesn’t change.”

The alleged audio recording has drawn criticism for Peter Obi as many Labour Party supporters claimed that the video was doctored. A Labour Party member, Kenneth Okonkwo however claimed that Obi was taken out of context by critics.
