You’re blinded by hatred for Buhari – Femi Adesina hits Oyedepo for saying Buhari government is ‘the most corrupt regime in the history of Nigeria’
Presidential spokesperson, Femi Adesina has tackled Bishop David Oyedepo, founder of Living Faith Church Worldwide, for saying Buhari government is ‘ the most corrupt regime in the history of Nigeria’.
Oyedepo who spoke at a church service on Monday June 13, had accused the government of not caring about the welfare of the citizens, especially students. He also averred that the N80bn suspended Accountant-General of the Federation is accused of diverting, could have been channeled to meet the demands of the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
The cleric said;
“Many children are out of school. There is nothing to pay to get them to school. We saw some folks in Covenant that we had to help out to graduate. N30,000, first class graduates can’t get the money under this wicked government, selfish, self-centered.
“What a fight against corruption. You were all deceived. You can’t be in corruption and fight corruption — the most corrupt regime in the history of Nigeria.
“You heard of auditor-general, N80 billion. All they need to pay for the universities to be up and running is less than N80 billion. Are they interested? Their children are not there.”
Reacting to this, Femi Adesina said Oyedepo couldn’t get his facts right because he’s been “blinded by hatred for President Muhammadu Buhari.” He also claimed that the cleric doesn’t know “the difference between Accountant General (only alleged) and Auditor General”.
“The bishop at Ota can’t even get his facts right. Blinded by hatred for PMB, he says Auditor General stole N80bn. Pity! He doesn’t know difference between Accountant General (only alleged) and Auditor General. Like OBJ said long ago, we should begin to ordain our own bishops.”

Muslim-Muslim ticket: Tinubu breaks silence, reveals running mate’s region
The All Progressives Congress, APC, presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, has reacted to rumours of picking a Muslim as his running mate.
Tinubu, who condemned such rumour, said he intends to pick a Northern Christian as his running mate. He gave the clarification while addressing journalists at the APC governorship rally in Ekiti State yesterday.
Tinubu distanced himself from the rumours, stressing that the carriers were undemocratic elements that are already threatened at his imminent victory in the coming presidential election.
“The VP slot belongs to the Northeastern region and particularly the Christians, but consultations are yet ongoing as to who will be decided,” he said. Tinubu assured Nigerians that no group, institution or person can impose a running mate on him.
