The Founder and Presiding Bishop of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, Dr. David Oyedepo, has advised the Federal Government to obliterate the part of the newly-signed amended Companies and Allied Matters Act, 2020 that gives the supervising minister the power to remove the board of trustees of churches without recourse to the court.
Bishop Oyedepo made this known while delivering a sermon at the Faith Tabernacle, Ota in Ogun State during the first service on of the church after COVID-19 lockdown on Sunday.
He said, “In the document, they said the registrar-general can remove the trustees without recourse to the court. Don’t try it. This must be from somebody who woke up from the wrong side of the bed after dreaming. The person must have drafted that aspect in the bill as their custom is.
“I am 51 years old in this thing (Christianity), don’t try it. I have been with Jesus for some time and I am sent as a prophet to nations. That a minister can remove the trustees and close the accounts of the church is.“You don’t know the strength of any man until you molest his wife. The cheapest way for a leader to lose respect is to insult the wife of his worker. He will tell you to take your job and insult you thoroughly.
