The founder and presiding bishop of the Living Faith Church Worldwide aka Winners Chapel, David Oyedepo has reiterated that he has never campaigned or spoken on behalf of any politician during elections in Nigeria.
The clergyman made this known while speaking on the subject of faith at the church’s headquarters at Faith Tabernacle, Ota hours after an alleged audio recording of the Labour Party presidential candidate, Peter Obi, pleading with the cleric to help instruct Christians in South West Nigeria to vote for him surfaced.
Oyedepo said he never spoke to any group of people on behalf of any politician.
He added that all political parties sought his prayers and advice before the election and he availed them.
“I have never campaigned for anybody or spoken on anybody’s behalf and I will not do that till I go to heaven.
“There is no (political) party in this country that 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 cleric has, however, been a strong critic of the ruling All Progressives Congress.
