Since Bishop Oyedepo criticized the newly signed CAMA law, he has been the topic of discussion . His Church’s financial records has leaked.
NAIJA NEWS NG reports that the Clergy vowed that nobody can appoint Trustees over his church.
In response to Oyedepo , the Personal Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie, said Oyedepo’s church has been complying with similar law in the United Kingdom but is kicking against it in Nigeria .
Onochie said he will have to create his own country to live the way he wants.
Onochie said: “I hope this is not true. If it is, Oyedepo will have to manufacture his own country and live by his own laws.
“As long as he lives and operates within the entity called Nigeria, he will live by Nigerian rules and laws. He will do as he’s told by the law. Enough of lawlessness”.
Yesterday a Twitter user , Dr. Olusesan published the Winners Chapel United Kingdom’s financial records which revealed the Oyedepo founded church was under investigation in the UK from 2013-2014 .
