Bishop Oyedepo Denies Campaigning For Peter Obi

The Founder of the Living Faith Church, Bishop David Oyedepo, has denied ever campaigning for any politician, including Peter Obi ahead of any election in Nigeria.
Speaking today, April 2 at the church’s headquarters in Ogun State on the subject of faith, the Bishop stressed that he never spoke to any group of people on behalf of any politician.
“Nobody had ever told me what to say in this world. No. I have never campaigned for anybody or speak 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 for 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. If you still come again, I will still tell you, it doesn’t change.”
Yesterday, April 1, an online newspaper, Peoples Gazette, had released an audio recording in which Peter Obi solicited the support of Oyedepo to help get votes from Christians in South-West.
Obi, who is former governor of Anambra State, said in the audio that the votes were needed because the 2023 presidential election was a religious war.
“Daddy, I need you to speak to your people in the South-West and Kwara, the Christians in the South-West and Kwara. This is a religious war. Like I keep saying: if this works, you people will never regret the support,” he said in the audio.
The audio attracted criticism for Obi, with some of his supporters saying it was doctored.
