– Bishop Oyedepo Says He Has No Interest In Politics
Founder and presiding Bishop of the megachurch Faith Tabernacle, Bishop David Oyedepo dismisses rumor of ever going into politics.
The out-spoken man of God during his regular Sunday service said that he considers it a demotion if invited to become Nigeria’s president while also reflecting on how God asked him if he was interested in the post as far back as in 1984.
In his full speech, Bishop Oyedepo said:
“Then whatever I tell you to do, do it. Don’t run around: whatever I tell you to do, do it. Don’t muse about: whatever I tell you to do. Don’t do what they do: do what I tell you to do.
“1984! Do you know that’s what led me to say, I will consider it a demotion… and I’m saying it again, some are very upset about it, that’s their problem.
“I will consider it a demotion if I were invited to be the President of this great country. It’s a great country, it’s a great honour for anyone to be President but that’s not where I belong. I belong to ‘above all nations.
“Angry or happy, there are more than 100 nations now hooked on to this service; and we all belong there together. That’s where we belong. Some can see it, others can’t see it: They say I don’t believe it, I just need food, water and eat, drink and die. I don’t need above all nations.
“I’ve said it before the highest concentration of giants in this generation will emerge from this platform. If you are one of them, let me hear your loudest Amen. The same way, this Church did not need any human help to get to where we are, you won’t bow to any devil to scale any height in your life.
“I will consider it a demotion if I were invited to be the President of this great country. It’s a great country, it’s a great honour for anyone to be President but that’s not where I belong. I belong to ‘above all nations,” he said.
