The Personal Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie, has taken on the Presiding Bishop of Living Faith Church Worldwide, popularly known as Winners Chapel, Dr. David Oyedepo, over his criticism of the Companies and Allied Matters Acts.
Oyedepo had on Sunday criticised the aspect of the Act that seeks to regulate the activities of religious bodies.
He said: “The church is God’s heritage on earth.
“Molest the wife of somebody and you will see the anger of that person.
“The church is the bride of Christ.
“You know how a strong man is when you tamper with his wife.
“The church is the body of Christ.
“We are under obligation to give warnings to wicked rulers so we could be free from their blood.
“The church works on the pattern delivered by God not the pattern of man.
“Government has no power to appoint people over churches.
“This is a secular nation.
“The church is the greatest asset of God in this country.
“Please be warned.
“Judgment is coming.
“The Lord says I have been still but now I will arise.
“Anybody that is in this deal is taking poison.
“This will never work.
“I am waiting for a day when anybody will appoint a trustee over this church….”
In response to Oyedepo on Monday on her Twitter handle, Onochie tweeted: “I hope this is not true.
“If it is, Oyedepo will have to manufacture his own country and live by his own laws.
“As long as he lives and operates within the entity called Nigeria, he will live by Nigerian rules and laws.
“He will do as he’s told by the law.
“Enough of lawlessness.”
