The Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF) has called for the immediate arrest of Bishop David Oyedepo.
Bishop Oyedepo, the General Overseer of the Living Faith Church Worldwide aka Winners Chapel held a Sunday church service at its headquarters after the Federal government placed a ban on large gatherings to curb the spread of the Coronavirus outbreak.
On Wednesday evening, a statement by Yerima Shettima, AYCF National President, said the cleric was still walking the streets of Nigeria freely despite flouting the federal and state governments’ ban on large gatherings over the coronavirus outbreak.#
The statement reads;
“Pastor Oyedepo has openly shown not only his disdain for the rule of law but also the value of human life. He has chosen to endanger the lives of many of his innocent followers by deliberately refusing to be guided in face of this global pandemic
“We therefore challenge Pastor Oyedepo to tell us if he did not take advantage of his closeness to Vice President Yemi Osinbajo in this flagrant disobedience to Nigerian laws and the United Nation’s Charter on the safety of human lives.
“He owes this nation full explanation for being the only Nigerian to indulge in creating a gathering of the Ibadan Canaan magnitude, when the restriction of movement is respected all over world because of the current pandemic.
“We therefore share the view of all prominent Nigerians that this Pastor should be promptly arrested for endangering the lives of innocent Nigerians, recklessly using religion as a cover.
“We hope the Nigerian security agencies will swing into action so that the prompt arrest of this callous clergyman would serve as a deterrent to others”.
George Floyd’s Daughter Speaks Out About Her Dad For The First Time
George Floyd was at his daughter Gianna Floyd’s side from the moment she was born into the world.
Floyd, who had just got off work received the call that Gianna, now six years old, was due to be born. A tired Floyd slept through hours of mother Roxie Washington’s painful labor. It was Gianna’s entrance into the world that would finally awaken him.
“She cried and he heard her,” Washington told “Good Morning America.” “They wiped her off and they gave her to him. I mean that was his baby. He wanted that moment though. He really really wanted that moment. He looked forward to that.”
Now Gianna feels an emptiness following her father’s death. In a recent interview, “she said she wants people to know “kinda that I miss him.”
Washington described Floyd as a supporter that did everything for their daughter.
“He just wanted her to have the best,” Washington said. “We were struggling so he did what he had to do as a man and he had to come here [to Minneapolis] to work. And he said I’m going to come back and get y’all.”
“I mean, that was his baby. He loved his little girl,” Washington said.
”And Gianna loved him. If you ask Gianna Floyd what her father was like, she’ll tell you that he was fun and played with her.
“He would put her on his shoulders,” Washington said. “She didn’t have to play with nobody else because daddy was gonna play all day long. And they played. They had fun.”
Washington was informed of Floyd’s death by her niece, and a close friend of Floyd’s would later confirm it.
“I watched it only for a moment,” Washington said of the bystander video showing Floyd’s death. “I couldn’t believe that somebody was on him like that. And then in that moment, you know, because I loved him so much I wanted to help him or I wish I could’ve been there to help him. And just hearing him begging for his life.”
In addition to the recent death of her mother, the death of Floyd is hard to talk about for Washington, especially with their daughter. But she faced that conversation when Gianna knew something was wrong.
“I had closed the door so I could watch the news. I went in the room and I said ‘Gianna, why did you open the door?’ She said ‘Something’s going on with my family,’” Washington told ABC News’ Eva Pilgrim. “She said ‘I hear them. I hear them saying my Daddy’s name.’”
Washington says she still hasn’t found the words to explain how her father died.
When asked what she’ll like to become, she said ““I know what I want to be when I grow up,” Gianna called out. “A doctor. So I can help people.”
I’ll Reopen Synagogue Church When I Get Instruction From Holy Spirit — TB Joshua
The founder of the Synagogue Church of All Nations (SCOAN), Prophet T.B. Joshua, said Wednesday that he was waiting for an instruction from the Holy Spirit to open his church.
Joshua spoke in response to the Federal Government’s guidelines for reopening religious centres.
Federal and State governments shut most worship centres in most of the country in the wake of the novel coronavirus pandemic.
The Presidential Task Force on the pandemic said Tuesday that places of worship had been identified as a major avenue of potential COVID-19 SPREAD.
PTF National Coordinator, Dr. Aliyu Sani, who announced the guidelines, added: “It is better to stay at home and worship than to go into a place of worship.”
Responding to the government’s advice, Joshua said in a statement that he would reopen SCOAN when God asks him to do so.
He said: “Don’t forget there was a revelation three times concerning the church closing.
“That same God, we are waiting to hear from on when to reopen – when things will go back to normal – as usual. God’s time is the best. We are waiting at His feet for that time. We are tarrying for the Holy Spirit’s instruction. Pray without ceasing.
“Meet us as usual on Emmanuel TV until we hear from God when to reopen, the same God who gave us the prophecy three times about the church closing. It is God’s work, not our work. Here, our thanks go to the authorities for understanding. Jesus is Lord!”
