The government of President Muhammadu Buhari is the worst in the country’s history, declared the Presiding Bishop of Living Faith Church Worldwide, also known as Winners Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo.
He also considered the hate speech bill sponsored by Senator Sabi Abdullahi to be the most ridiculous.
Oyedepo spoke on Sunday in a sermon during the second church service at the Tabernacle of Faith, Ota, Ogun State.
He regretted that while the government planned to crack down on hate speech, it was allowing the killers to be freed.
Assassins should be dealt with and not hate speakers.
According to him: “The government of this country is making a draconian law – hate speech. They said that if you speak with hate, you have committed murder.
“From someone who says that I kill you and who does, who committed a crime? I don’t understand what kind of animal farm we live in.
“I told you to stop tiptoeing and you said it was hate speech, but someone kills and he is walking freely on the streets.
“This is the most stupid and meaningless ideal that anyone can imagine.
“I said that you are bad and you said that it is a crime. Should I say that you are good when you are bad?
“In my opinion, you are bad and you should not be a leader. I have the right to say that. As far as I’m concerned, I am a real Nigerian born and intelligently raised.
“In my opinion, this is the worst thing that happened to Nigeria – this government. It is the worst and, in fact, it is like a curse.”
He added: “I have been here for some time and I conducted the first prayer and fast for Nigeria in 1979. I am not a baby in Nigeria’s affairs.
‘This is the worst government, a government without direction. Your days are numbered. I can say as a prophet that their days are numbered. “
