David Oyedepo has said President Muhammadu Buhari should resign following wanton killings by Fulani herdsmen.
Oyedepo is the founder and bishop of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, aka Winners’ Chapel.
This was revealed In a YouTube video posted in the church’s official page after the cleric made the statement on Sunday at its headquarters in Ota, Ogun State.
Though Oyadepo said he was not partisan, but added he would not be alive and not talk about the massacre of Nigerians, especially in the Middle Belt, by suspected Fulani herdsmen.
He spoke on the theme “Enough is enough.”
Stating: “When I was talking in 2015, people were saying my own was too much, now everybody can see what’s happening. What has moved forward in anybody’s life? You don’t know it’s war. Why are they attacking the Christian communities? Why has nobody been arrested? I can tell you this, the authorities and the powers that be are behind them.
“I will never be partisan; Jesus got me out of it in 1984. But I will not be alive to see innocent people massacred.
“We must wake up and push this evil back. Not one of those so-called herdsmen – they are jihadists – has been brought to book till date. Herdsmen don’t shoot; they have been here all along.

“The most honorable thing for any non-performing leader to do is to resign. The most honorable thing is to resign. That’s my own for Mr. President. Resign! Get out of office! Even our Islamic friends in the North are calling on him (Buhari) to resign. Because that’s the noblest thing to do. Or are we going to look at one system destroy a whole n
He continued, “I’m going to say this and I’m not going to be tired. This (Nigeria) will never be a Fulani republic. That is not our terms of the agreement. It will remain a secular nation until Jesus returns. It’s not just (about) land, it’s (about) heritage.
“Forever, I stand on the fact that no government has the authority to collect land from those who own it and transfer it to another person because on the other side (presumably the north), it never happens.”
