Bishop Fearon Blasts Oyedepo Over ‘Mad’ Comment On APC Voters by another1: 7:59pm On Dec 18, 2022
Chairman of Kaduna State Peace Commission (KAPECOM) Archbishop Josiah Idowu-Fearon has said that religious leaders must see themselves as instruments of unity despite their personal political preferences.

Bishop Idowu-Fearon was reacting to a statement credited to the General Overseer of Living Faith Church, Bishop David Oyedepo, ‘the number of people who vote for APC in 2023 will determine the number of mad people in Nigeria’.

Fearon argued it was wrong for any religious leader to tell his congregation to vote for any particular party.

He spoke on the sideline of a high level meeting of political parties, candidates and stakeholders for peaceful campaigns and elections in Kaduna State where 18 registered political parties, 14 governorship candidates and candidates for National Assembly and House of Assembly signed peace accord.

The event was organised by KAPCOM with support from Hope Action Progress, Legal Awareness for Nigerian Women (LANW) ActionAid, Christian Aid, Global Community Engagement and Resilient Fund (GCERF), SARVE and Global Peace Development (GPD).

The theme was: “Building consensus and mobilising collective action for peaceful 2023 general elections in Kaduna State”.

The Anglican Bishop was dismayed religious leaders wants to be seen as rulers, a situation he said is not helping the country and its democratic processes.

He said Nigerians must be allowed to vote their choices regardless of religion and tribe, stating “let candidates manifestoes and competence speak for them and not their religion or tribe.

Religious leaders are part of the political problems we have in this country, some of them want to be rulers which is a wrong concept bringing about unnecessary sentiments.”

Idowu-Fearon who expressed fear with the way political activities are going with candidates being viewed on regional basis, averred that the elections might be inconclusive in the first ballot.

On the agitation by the South East for the presidency, he said: “Nigeria is practicing democracy which requires negotiation and not threat of any kind, adding that politics should not be seen as a do or die affairs.

“Insecurity and burning down of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) office in the South East will only end up drawing the region backward politically if not addressed holistically”.

He said leaders of the region are certainly not doing enough to address the situation.

“As we approach the elections, the media must be objective, religious leaders must educate their members to vote based on competence and pray for the candidates because voting is a religious responsibility.

“Party candidates must be honest and should abide by the constitution and their campaigns must be issue based devoid of hate speeches and calumny, above all we pray for a violent free conduct of 2023 general elections,” he said.

Bishop David Oyedepo was right, How can one continue to do the same thing over and over and expect a different result, that's insanity.

Oyedepo is a Nigerian before becoming a pastor and as a Nigerian I think he has every right to speak as one.

We employed APC to help manage Nigeria due to what we felt regarding PDP maladministration but alas! APC did even worst.

Pastors spewing trashes from the pulpit all for personal interest and will sugarcoat it as if it's for collective good.

Interestingly Christianity is not nsogbu nsogbu herders religion as everyone act according to his/her personal convictions.

Our amiable archbishop knows nothing about politics if this is what he has to say about the SE and I'll say it to his face except he was quoted out of context.

The SE is NOT agitating for Nigeria's presidency. You elders and political elite don't get it because of tribal and political bigotry including Mr archbishop. The fact of the matter today is that one of the most qualified candidates for position of president happens to be an Igbo man which happens to be a crime in Nigeria because how can Omo Igbo be president of this country, Igbos are supposed to be silent doormats. The sadness of the political elite and tribal jingoists is that structureless Obi has touched the hearts of a vocal and enlightened youthful populace most of whom are first or second time voters. Bishop should be guided in his comments

The man of devil will lose again, just like his Jonathan adoption failed. God does not fail His people. Therefore, Oyedepo is of the devil. He will fail again.

He did not fail. We would have continued with Jonathan. Things won't be this bad. We have lost our best to Japa than ever before. Oyedepo was right before because APC regime is the worst. We just got it through the back door and we are paying dearly for it.


May the will of God happen. We humans are dumb.

The Supreme Monkey has always tried to stir up religious tensions in Nigeria which was why he has been attending churches everywhere.

Supreme Monkey Obi is not a unifier for the following reasons

1) He sacked non catholics in Anambra while he was governor of Anambra

2) He sacked all non Anambra indigenes from Anambra civil service

3) He persecuted and "deported ” northerners out of Anambra while he was governor

4) He has been going to different churches there by whipping up religious tensions in Nigeria

Oyedepo a bishop? A bishop of scamming the poor with his preposterous prosperity gospel preaching. He's still bitter over the defeat of his then preferred candidate Jonathan by the APC. No more free access to the villa. Nonsense!

Are you Igbo ?
I asked cos only Igbo can reason as madly foolish as you have reaoned.

If Gumi declared the number of you that vote Pandora criminal as the number of lunatics in Nigeria your Igbo foolish father would be running around the street naked like a deranged lunatic.

It is fools like you that will argue the likes of Ikpeazu Ugwuayi Kalu Orji Theodore Orji Peter Obi Elechi n co are beta governor to Tinubu yet you fools ain't running to their state but to Lagos state which Tinubu as been managing.
