Ahead of the 2019 elections, the founder and presiding bishop of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, aka Winners’ Chapel, David Oyedepo, has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to resign over failure to halt killings in the country.

Bishop Oyedepo made the call on Sunday at its headquarters in Ota, Ogun State. The videos was also posted on the church YouTube page “Zion Television” on the 23 June, 2018.

He said he was not partisan, he would not be alive and not talk about the massacre of Nigerians, especially in the Middle Belt, by suspected Fulani herdsmen.


The cleric, categorically, said that Nigeria will never be a Fulani republic.

He added that the way things are going he is not going to be tired.

Bishop Oyedepo who preached on the theme: “Enough is enough” said Nigerians must wake up and push this evil back.

He decried that not one of the herdsmen has been brought to book till date.

According to him: “When I was talking in 2015, people were saying my own was too much, now everybody can see what’s happening.

“What has moved forward in anybody’s life? You don’t know it’s war. Why are they attacking the Christian communities? Why has nobody been arrested? I can tell you this, the authorities and the powers that be are behind them.

“I will never be partisan; Jesus got me out of it in 1984. But I will not be alive to see innocent people massacred.”

“Forever, I stand on the fact that no government has the authority to collect land from those who own it and transfer it to another person because on the other side (presumably the north), it never happens.

“We must wake up and push this evil back. Not one of those so-called herdsmen – they are jihadists – has been brought to book till date.

“Herdsmen don’t shoot; they have been here all along. They are just taking cover under the herdsmen to assault innocent citizens. They wake up in the night and slice innocent children to pieces. Yet, you have a government in place. What!

“The most honourable thing for any non-performing leader to do is to resign. The most honourable thing is to resign. That’s my own for Mr President. Resign! Get out of office! Even our Islamic friends in the North are calling on him (Buhari) to resign. Because that’s the noblest thing to do. Or are we going to look at one system destroy a whole nation?”

Oyedepo also warned Nigerians against the ceding of land to the Fulani herdsmen for ranching, as proposed by the federal government.

He added that the country will remain a secular nation till Jesus returns.

“It’s not just (about) land, it’s (about) heritage,” he said.
