Bishop David Oyedepo of the Living Faith Church (Aka WINNERS CHAPEL) has said he won’t take the COVID-19 vaccine being administered across the country.
Oyedepo, who spoke during the church’s Covenant Hour of Prayer programme, said the world was confused over COVID-19 and that the church has the answer.
According to Oyedepo: “I have never seen a generation where you force people to take vaccines. It is inhuman; it is immoral sir. I’m not a lawyer but I don’t think it is legal. You can’t come to my house and want to give me injections.
“On what? Did I invite you? They are confused. But the church has the answer. Did you see any outbreak of virus here? How will it enter the gate? Will it come through the air? How?
“One woman just got down after that injection in Kaduna. What kind of life? Are human beings now turned to guinea pigs? The world is confused but the church is triumphing.
“So, the triumph of the church will humble the pride of the world. They don’t know what to do, sir. In the last days, the church will be reigning in power and glory. That is God’s agenda.
“No apologies. There is a big, big bird in our land, saying, ‘don’t take it, they are deceivers’. Let me see someone who will come and inject me.
“Are you going to tie my hands? How? Did I invite you? I know you are quiet, you will hear more of it. My job is to expose the devil and tell his agents, ‘get off, we are not guinea pigs.”
Oyedepo is an unabashed Covid sceptic, and voiced his opposition to the lockdowns imposed to curb the spread of the virus.
