Bishop Oyedepo Orders Members To Bring Their PVCs To Church

Churches in Lagos State yesterday dedicated time to seek the face of God concerning next Saturday’s presidential and National Assembly elections.
They prayed for peaceful and non-violent exercise, as the pastors cautioned members on how to behave during and after the elections.
Many of the services monitored involved special prayer sessions for peace to reign before, during and after the elections.

At Global Harvest Church, Maryland, Reverend Victor Adeyemi led members to pray for peaceful polls and the enthronement of the will of God over Nigeria.
The 10th year anniversary service witnessed special prayer sessions in the two services for the will of God to reign over the elections.
At Daystar Christian Centre, Oregun, Pastor Sam Adeyemi urged members of the church to pray for “those who will fulfill God’s agenda to be elected .”
Pastor Adeyemi told his 20,000-strong congregation to pray against violence, bloodshed and for the will of God over the country.
At St. Gerald Catholic Church Soluyi, Gbagada, the cleric urged the faithful to vote according to their conscience.

He warned members against getting involved in arguments with anyone at the polling station and also to desist from any form of campaign for any candidate or political party on the day of the election.

However, it was a more dramatic scenario at the Living Faith Church, also known as Winners Chapel, where Presiding Bishop David Oyedepo asked members to come with their Permanent Voters Cards (PVCs).

The cards were used as a “point of contact” to pray for peace.

Bishop Oyedepo asked the congregation to pray that God’s will be done at all levels of the polls.

He prayed for wisdom for those in charge of the election, particularly officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

At many of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) branches in Lagos, prayers were said for the elections. One of the pastors, who declined to be named, urged the members to be conversant with the electoral laws before, during and after the elections, while he also urged them to get their PVCs.

Former vice presidential candidate of the defunct Congress for Progressive Change (CPC) and the founder of Latter Rain Assembly (LRA), Pastor Tunde Bakare, prayed for the success of the election.

He said: “May God Almighty ensure that Nigeria wins; may neither of the gladiators win, if the price we must pay for winning an election is losing the nation.”

Pastor Bakare also took a swipe at some delegates to the Constitutional Conference for “flagrantly distorting the truth,” about the outcome of the conference.

The cleric, who was an Ogun State delegate to the confab, berated Afenifere leader Chief Ayo Adebanjo, who was part of the Lagos camp, for saying he would not forgive the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Maj. Gen. Muhammadu Buhari, for what he (Buhari) did in the past.

He said: “The Yoruba went to the National Conference as a group, but when the March 19 meeting took place, the Deputy Chairman was in Ibadan, while the Secretary, that led the group to the confab, was in Lagos.
“The meeting in Lagos had a stain of unforgiveness. When I heard such sentiments as ‘I will never forgive General Muhammadu Buhari for what he did as a former head of state’, my heart sank.”

The pastor criticised the Ibadan group for “double standard”, saying it erred when it stated that the Yoruba did not achieve their aims at the confab.

Clearing the air on his earlier call for election postponement, Bakare noted that it was not a call for Interim National Government.
The cleric said he had lifted the “embargo” he placed on the election, noting that the “issues have been ameliorated by the shift” of the polls by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC).

Is he a card inspection agent? Why tell them to bring voter’s card,when he could have prayed without the card? Funniest thing is that some gullible folks would run along with the card to the church according to Daddy G.O. Religion is the biggest scam of the century.

If by chance Buhari wins this election, extremely hard times lies ahead for this country.

Definitely, the creeks will go haywire again, Buhari will send the troops to the creeks and together they will set the oil facilities ablaze.

While these persists, the oil producing companies will simply withdraw their personnel from the volatile region and all foreign investment will seize in all sectors.And even if the troops kill 90% of the militants, it will take just one militant, a dynamite and just one location along the multi- kilometre trunklines to continue to wreck havoc.

Fast forward to 2019, if we remain one country and without a civil war,, we will be an economic wreck with no allocations and salaries, no capital projects, no hope with dollar exchanging for 400 naira and we are worse off than we were in 2015.

Cos the truth is that without crude proceeds for now, Nigeria is finished.

And then, we’ll be screaming another ‘Change’ because we would have learnt a bitter lesson in the hands of the Fulanis, Tinubu and Saraki.And then we will ask…. Why were we this silly?

And before you quote me, make sure you outline in clear terms how you or Buhari will avert this obvious calamity staring us in the face

Only last week, they creek boys seem to have resumed activities by kidnapping at Yoho facility operated by Exxonmobil and have shut in 80KBD already. Are we ready for this for the next 4 years?

The entire world stands to benefit from a crisis in the Niger delta. Its not a coincidence that USA who abandoned us at the height of bokoharam is busy shouting for change in govt . Crises in the ND will reduce supply of crude to the Oil market and that would drive up the price of crude for producing countries…. But at Nigeria’s expense.

Nigerians…. Be Warned!!!

@laura: The real deal here is that bloggers and news editors are really obsessed with Oyedepo. Out of all the pastors they covered who prayed over the forthcoming election, they just had to use Bishop as the headline. They know many people would just see Bishop Oyedepo in the headline and immediately rush to their news.
