Femi Fani-Kayode, a former aviation minister and thought leader in Nigeria, on Tuesday, January 17, 2017 visited the president and presiding bishop of Living Faith Church, also known as Winners Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo.
According to a Facebook update by Chief Fani-Kayode, he visited “God’s endtime general” in his residence in Canaanland, Ota, the headquarters of the global ministry.
“It was an honor to spend some time with one of the most courageous men in our country today at his magnificent home at Canaan land,” he wrote on Wednesday morning.
“Bishop David Oyedepo is one of God’s endtime generals and a great blessing to Nigeria and the Church. May God continue to use him mightily.”
“It is like son going to see his father; I went to see my father,” the evangelical leader told Naij.com.
“I am happy he is so strong and healthy; as strong as ever. He is a blessing to our generation, the body of Christ and the nation as a whole,” Fani-Kayode said.”

Bishop Oyedepo dominated headlines last week when a footage of a sermon he gave in 2014 condemning Boko Haram, Islamist terrorism, and the killing of Christians in Nigeria went viral. The story was given wings by the tensed situation in the country centred on the genocide of Christians by Fulani herdsmen in Southern Kaduna.
This media storm that followed included Islamic leaders in the country calling for the arrest of Bishop Oyedepo and other Christian leaders in the country who have spoken against the Jihadist killings of defenseless indigenous of Southern Kaduna.
Fani-Kayode is one of the Christian political leaders in Nigeria to speak out against the killings and call for the arrest of the Islamist perpetrators.
