Bishop David Oyedepo, the President of Living Faith Church Worldwide, on Thursday said Nigeria does not need a leader but a deliverer.
He made this remark during a sermon at the ongoing Shiloh programme at the church’s headquarters in Ota, Ogun State.
Oyedepo, who also lamented the current security and economic crisis, said he warned Nigerians against voting for the current government in 2015.
“I think I am prompted by the spirit we need to pray for this nation. I warned this nation in 2015 that we were heading for crisis and trauma, and many were washing their mouth. They are off today.
“God does not require consensus to raise a prophet. I saw a nation going down the drain, and I cried. There are many prophets of politicians who speak what they want to hear.
“I have been very silent, what we need now is not a leader, it is a deliverer. Almost nothing remains except the church that can be called a nation,” Oyedepo said.
In attendance was the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, at the night section of the Shiloh 2022 programme on Thursday.
