How Oyedepo’s Living Faith Pastors Send Fake Church Attendance, Offerings To Headquarters To Keep Their Jobs – Another Pastor Spills




Another pastor has spilled some alarming actions that some of the pastors at Oyedepo’s Winners Chapel do so as to keep their positions unperturbed.

According to the pastor who spoke on condition of anonymity, these pastors have a colloquy with the senior church ministers who make deductions from their salaries and remit them back to the church as offerings for the non-existent congregations.

He added that this lead to the sack of a number of pastors who couldn’t follow the same practice of sending fake church attendance figures and church offerings to the state headquarters to keep their jobs.

The pastor spoke Sahara Reporters;

He said, “Well, they (Living Faith) planted over 10,000 churches before the end of 2020 and they celebrated it. After this were the different issues of no church hall and other necessary materials for the pastors to work. But some senior Pastors keep telling lies that we (the employed pastors) should be patient with them.

“While this was going on, we must send reports of the churches to the headquarters through the area church. This was so that they would believe the church existed. Now, guess what number a pastor without church hall would send.

“But wisdom was what the senior pastors were asking us to use because, Oyedepo could not be everywhere to check. What wisdom was that? Send good figure as the number of the attendance of your assembly; then put money to it from your salary. At the end of the month, half of the money you put would still be paid back to you to support the church you claimed existed. Nobody would ask you how you spend it and all your needs will be attended to quickly from the state headquarters.

“They call it father and son relationship in the Winners family. It is not by mouth but by envelopes that have cash inside. All these were what we were facing; no church hall and other things but attendance must prove that the church was growing.

“Those of us who could not do that were called lazy, fools, unfruitful, and so on.”

EPL: Gary Neville names five Man Utd players that shouldn’t be starting together

Former Manchester United captain, Gary Neville has named Cristiano Ronaldo among five Red Devils players that should not be starting together.

According to Neville, Ronaldo, Paul Pogba, Jadon Sancho, Mason Greenwood and Bruno Fernandes should not be starting together for Man United because they lacked ‘workhorses’.

The former defender said this while reacting to Man United’s Premier League 4-2 defeat to Leicester City on Saturday.

Leicester defeated Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side at the King Power Stadium, thanks to goals from Youri Tielemans, Caglar Soyuncu, Jamie Vardy and Patson Daka.

“Their performances are nowhere near good enough, at the moment when they play half-decent teams, they are going to struggle,” Neville told Sky Sports.

“The performances have been shoddy all season. It’s scrappy and scruffy to watch. So when you play against a team with a methodology, you are going to get pulled apart. They got pulled apart against Villa, pulled apart against Everton, pulled apart by Villarreal.

“We have seen a team that’s been picked today with Greenwood, Sancho, Pogba, Ronaldo and Fernandes in that team.

“I wouldn’t want to be a defender in that team. I would love them as players but not all in the same team. There are not enough workhorses. The current squad is unbalanced.”
