Founder and General Overseer of Living Faith Church, popularly known as Winners Chapel, David Oyedepo, says vying for the presidency in the 2023 race is a demotion for his personality.
The cleric stated this during a leadership summit transmitted worldwide.
Oyedepo in his statement said it is too late for him to contest the highest political position in the country.
The cleric called on the workforce of the church to be devoted to serving God.
“I believe in Nigeria and that is why I am still here, and still praying for Nigeria. But I consider it a demotion if I am invited to become the President of Nigeria. I am called for a global impact. I saw this in 1984.
“Even the devil knows that you can’t be genuinely sold-out to serving God, and not stand out in life.
“Since 1976, I have never missed a change of story.
“I was 19 years old when I prayed to God not to let me leave a village the way I get it. So I was 19 when I encountered destiny.
“I have not been tired of going out for God since 1976,” Oyedepo said.
