The presiding Bishop of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, David Oyedepo has lent his support to the ongoing #Endsars protest that has spanned almost two weeks. Oyedepo while speaking during the first service said President Muhammadu Buhari was leading a regime with no regard for human lives.
He said, “We have been having spates of protests across the nation. Every man has a right, legitimately so, to express their displeasure and pains. Everybody has! I kept quiet for a while because in 2015, I warned this nation VEHEMENTLY, CONSISTENTLY because I saw the dangers ahead and you can tell!
“The most gruesome season in the history of this nation is the last 5 years, where lives have no value: wanton killings here and there. NOW THEY HAVE FACED THE YOUTHS. And because they don’t know who is next, they have a right to say: ENOUGH IS ENOUGH. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.
“Any system that has no value for human lives is irrelevant. If they were killed when they were youths, will they be where they are today? And now, it will be a sacrilege to shoot the protesters who are not looting, who are not ravaging.
“I’ve been one of the few voices in the last five years, telling these men and women, “until you push a goat to the wall, you won’t know it has teeth to bite.” I AM HERE TO SAY THE YOUTHS HAVE THE RIGHT TO SAY NO! I wish they said it with me when I was shouting in 2015. I wish they did, they won’t be in this trouble today. So I have my moral reasons for being quiet. I was grievously attacked. You see, prophets are not opinion leaders, they are the mouth piece of God.
“What we need is mercy! God won’t send you warnings through an angel. He sends you warnings through Apostles and Prophets. I warned you at the risk of my reputation! And I’m glad that God has vindicated Himself. Check the history of Nigeria, there has been no time of massive loss of lives than the last 5 years including slaughtering people in Church, including beheading a CAN Chairman with video. My God!
“Well the bad news for every wicked soul, behind these wanton killings is that your judgement has come. The Animal Farm of George Orwell is far more civilized than what we are seeing. How many know George Orwell here? IT’S OVER!!!!
“Please understand that we own this nation together. No one owns this nation more than another, whether you are from North West or South West or East West, wherever you may be from. You don’t own this nation more than any other person.”
