Presidential spokesperson, Femi Adesina has tackled Bishop David Oyedepo, founder of Living Faith Church Worldwide, for saying the 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 in 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 the difference between Accountant General (only alleged) and Auditor General. Like OBJ said long ago, we should begin to ordain our bishops.”
