Resign, get out of office! – Oyedepo to Buhari

The founder and presiding bishop of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, aka Winners ’ Chapel , David Oyedepo , has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to resign over persistent Fulani militant herdsmen killings .
In a YouTube video posted by the church’ s official page , the cleric made this call on Sunday at its headquarters in Ota , Ogun State.

With this development , Oyedepo has joined other notable clerics – including the Archbishop of the Roman Catholic Church , Abuja , John Cardinal Onaiyekan ; and a former Archbishop of the Catholic Church in Lagos , Cardinal Anthony Olubunmi Okogie – who have asked Buhari to quit his position over failure to secure the lives of Nigerians .

The cleric told his congregation that although he was not partisan , he would not be alive and not talk about the massacre of Nigerians, especially in the Middle Belt , by suspected Fulani herdsmen .

Speaking on the theme , “ Enough is enough , ” he said , “ When I was talking in 2015 , people were saying my own was too much , now everybody can see what’ s happening . What has moved forward in anybody ’ s life ? You don’ t know it ’ s war . Why are they attacking the Christian communities ? Why has nobody been arrested? I can tell you this, the authorities and the powers that be are behind them .

“ I will never be partisan ; Jesus got me out of it in 1984 . But I will not be alive to see innocent people massacred .
“ We must wake up and push this evil back . Not one of those so- called herdsmen – they are jihadists – has been brought to book till date . Herdsmen don’ t shoot ; they have been here all along. They are just taking cover under the herdsmen to assault innocent citizens . They wake up in the night and slice innocent children to pieces . Yet, you have a government in place . What !

“ The most honourable thing for any non -performing leader to do is to resign . The most honourable thing is to resign . That’ s my own for Mr President . Resign ! Get out of office ! Even our Islamic friends in the North are calling on him ( Buhari ) to resign . Because that ’ s the noblest thing to do . Or are we going to look at one system destroy a whole nation ?”

Oyedepo also warned Nigerians against the ceding of land to the Fulani herdsmen for ranching , as proposed by the Federal Government .
He said , “ I ’ m going to say this and I ’ m not going to be tired . This ( Nigeria ) will never be a Fulani republic . That is not our terms of agreement . It will remain a secular nation till Jesus returns . It ’ s not just ( about ) land , it ’ s ( about ) heritage .

“ Forever , I stand on the fact that no government has the authority to collect land from those who own it and transfer it to another person because on the other side ( presumably the north ) , it never happens . ”
