The Senior Pastor of Covenant Christian Center has responded to a post making the rounds on the social media that he post on how one can remain effective during a time like this was in response to Bishop David Oyedepo of the Living Faith (Winners Chapel International).
Pastor Poju released a statement on his social media handle, facebook precisely that his post has nothing to with with Bishop Oyedepo and that his post came in 48 hour before Bishop Oyedepo spoke, in his word from his official fb page, he said;
“My attention has been drawn to articles going around some websites that an article I wrote on how one can remain effective during these times was written in response to Bishop Oyedepo’s statement on the closure of Churches.
That assumption/inference is simply incorrect.Facts can easily be verified by checking time-lines. My article was written before Bishop Oyedepo spoke.
I do understand that certain narratives drive traffic to websites and sowing seeds of division does attract attention.I would like to make it clear and on record that my article was written 48hours before he spoke.
In the article I did emphasise that criticising other ministries and churches operations is not a sign of strength on one’s part so the article contradicts the conclusions being inferred.”
He ended his post by stating that he is not critical of other ministries and thus couldn’t have done what was alleged of him to do.
