Bishop Oyedepo reacts to Leaked Audio, Declaring, ‘I Never Campaigned For Any Politician’


David Oyedepo, Presiding Bishop of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, stated on Sunday that he has never advocated for or spoken on behalf of any politician during any election in Nigeria.

The cleric mentioned this while speaking on faith at the church’s headquarters in Ota, Ogun, less than 24 hours after a media platform (not Frank Talk Now) claimed that Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi called the cleric on the eve of the 2023 presidential election to help instruct Christians in South West Nigeria to vote for him.

While not explicitly addressing the alleged leaked phone conversation between him and Obi, Bishop Oyedepo stated that he never spoke to any group of people on behalf of any politician.

Prior to the election, all political parties requested his prayers and advice, which he provided.

“Nobody had ever told me what to say in this world,” he explained. No.

“I have never campaigned for anybody or speak on anybody’s behalf and I will not do that till I go to heaven.

“There is no (political) party in this country that didn’t come to me for prayers and for advice.

“I advised them, some, they didn’t take. Those who chose to take it, they see results; those who said no, they are going about it (laughs).

“If you still come again, I will still tell you, it doesn’t change.”
