The founder and overseer of the Living Faith Church/Winners Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo, has reacted against the controversial hate speech bill.
Speaking at an annual event held in his church, Shiloh, Bishop Oyedepo spoke against the hate bill, urged Nigerians not to give in to the hate speech bill as proposed and he accused the government of failing to meet the yearnings of the people and as such, wants to frustrate those it thinks are critical.
“If the road is bad, they cannot say the road is bad? You cannot silence a prophet,” he declared asking if the country was progressing or retrogressing.
“Let’s join hands together and evil shall not prevail.” He mocked the government saying it fails to act against those he considered as killers, but wants to deal with those speaking out.
The Bishop described the hate speech bill as one of the craziest ideas ever in Nigeria.
“I don’t know if anyone loves Nigeria more than I do. Imagine they are not hanging killers, they want to hang ‘hate’ speakers? “Anyway, that is dead already if the wicked will not stop his wickedness, God will stop his wickedness,” Oyedepo said.
