Bishop David Abioye, the second in command to Bishop David Oyedepo of the Living Faith Church, has warned the Muhammadu Buhari government against persecuting men of God.
Recall that Buhari had in August 2020 signed the amended Companies and Allied Matters Act (CAMA) into law.
Speaking during church service on Sunday in Kaduna, Bishop Abioye warned the government against enforcing the CAMA law.
According to the cleric,CAMA would bring doom to Nigeria if the church and the fathers of faith are sidelined.
Bishop Abioye said: “There are a lot of progress going on in this commission and several other ministries over which wicked people in this nation are unhappy and putting a different kind of rules and laws in place just to stop the church, but they’re already late.
“Take away certain men of God from this nation; everything will be in shambles.
“Every state in Nigeria collects the tax, where is the development? Where are the hospitals? Where are the roads and schools?
“People who are working and making things happen should be appreciated not castigated. Leave Pastor Adeboye, Bishop Oyedepo alone.
“Leave all our spiritual fathers alone. Leave our fathers alone. Find out what God is using them to do and if you can’t applaud them, stomach your anger, stomach your reaction, stomach your pain.
“How many private universities do we have that do not go cap in hand to begging money from the government and yet salaries are being paid regularly?”
