FG Warns Bishop David Oyedepo.
The federal Government of Nigeria has warned the owner of living faith church also known as winners chapel.
The federal Government has told Bishop David Oyedepo of the living faith church to go and create his own country where he can do any how he likes, create his own laws and live by it.
Before now, Bishop David Oyedepo made some comments on federal Government regulation. This didn’t go down well with the Government which made the presidency give him a stern warning. By saying that he is against the Government.
Bishop David Oyedepo said it is no longer coronavirus, it is now anti church virus. He added that how will the government open markets for 6 days in a week and churches for 2 days.
President Muhammadu Buhari earlier signed the Company and Allied Matters Acts, CAMA into law on August 7, 2020, and the CAC intends to apply the law in churches.
Under the law, religious bodies and charity organisations will be strictly regulated by the registrar-general of Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) and a supervising minister.
CAMA provides that the commission may by order, suspend the trustees of an association or a religious body and appoint an interim manager or managers to coordinate its affairs where it reasonably believes that there has been any misconduct or mismanagement, or where the affairs of the association are being run fraudulently or where it is necessary or desirable for the purpose of public interest.
While addressing members of his congregation on Sunday, Oyedepo said such laws were borne of out the government’s jealousy about the prosperity recorded by the church.
