I endorse Atiku because i dont belong to any political party—Bishop David Oyedepo

The General Overseer of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, also
known as Winners’ Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo, has said he
does not belong to any party.
Bishop Oyedepo, while giving his Sunday sermon titled: “Covenant
day of open doors” said his goal is to secure a glorious destiny for
Nigeria.
The bishop had earlier been criticised by some Nigerians for his
presence at the reconciliation meeting that held between former
President Olusegun Obasanjo and the candidate of the Peoples
Democratic Party (PDP), Atiku Abubakar, in Abeokuta last
Thursday.
Two other prominent clerics, Hassan Kukah and Ahmad Gumi, who
had also been criticised for attending the reconciliatory meeting
have also explained why they were in Abeokuta.

However on Sunday Mr Oyedepo, while he did not directly explain
why he was at the parley like his colleagues, said he is an
apolitical and peace-seeking leader.
“I have never belonged to any political party and will never belong
to one. Wherever parties you are in, that is where I am in. There is
no party without winners in it, if you get to any party and you don’t
see any winner in it, you better check out of there, even the one
that have not being formed winners are there.
“Our goal is to secure the glorious destiny of our nation by paying
whatever price it require. I have never taken any dime from any
political candidate in my life, I am a mediator. The price of peace
is far cheaper than the cost of war so what we are saying is let us
talk this over don’t let us exchange blows.
“Let us be mature and be sincere, let’s give chance to reason and
let the wicked turn from their wicked ways. We have to do it by
appealing to people’s reasoning.
Does anybody here want to see war? The 30 months war we
fought, the effect keeps lingering, you won’t see war again in the
name of Jesus.”
Mr Oyedepo was pictured on Thursday with other religious leaders
who accompanied Mr Abubakar to the residence of Mr Obasanjo
who had earlier vowed not to support Mr Abubakar.
After the meeting, the Ogun born politician forgave Mr Abubakar
and endorsed him for president.

Can the south east (Igbo speaking tribe) produce the next Nigerian President come 2023?
