As presidential aspirants continue to emerge ahead of the forthcoming presidential election, Bishop of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, LFC, also known as Winners Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo, says he considered vying for the Nigerian President as a demotion.
Speaking during a leadership summit transmitted worldwide, Oyedepo, while charging the church workforce on need to be devoted to serving God, insisted that it is too late for him to be the nation’s President.
His words: “I believe in Nigeria and that is why I am still here, and still praying for Nigeria. But I consider it a demotion if I am invited to become the President of Nigeria. I am called for a global impact. I saw this since 1984.
“Even the devil knows that you can’t be genuinely sold-out to serving God, and not stand out in life.
“Since 1976, I have never missed a change of story”.
“I was 19 years old when I prayed to God not to let me leave a village the way I met it. So I was 19 when I encountered destiny.
“I have not been tired going out for God since 1976”.
He urged members of the church to pray for grace to be released on them for global impact for Christ.
