The founder of Living Faith Church Worldwide, Bishop David Oyedepo, says he never campaigned for any politician or spoke on their behalf in the build-up to the 2023 General Elections in the country.
Oyedepo made this known while speaking to the congregation at the church’s headquarters, Faith Tabernacle in Ogun State.
The cleric was reacting to the leaked audio published by a media platform between the himself and the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, on the eve of the presidential poll discussing on the mobilization of Christians in Kwara and South-West states to vote for Obi.
He says he never spoke to any group of people on behalf of any politician
The Labour Party Presidential Campaign Council, LPPCC, has described the alleged leaked audio conversation between its presidential candidate in the just concluded election, Mr. Peter Obi and the Founder of the Living Faith Church worldwide David Oyedepo as a ‘deep fake.’
In the statement, signed by the head of Media Obi-Datti Presidential Campaign Council of the Labour Party, Diran Onifade, the viral video is another attempt by the ruling party to find relevance with the Nigerian public.
The statement says the All Progressives Congress’ desperation to grab and retain power by foul means has refused to go away more than a month after they have grabbed the election as they planned.
The Party says while it was toeing the constitutional path to retrieve its mandate, those who have truncated the wishes of the majority of Nigerians have recourse to mischief and endless subterfuge to continue to hold on to what they know does not belong to them.
