Sack of 40 pastors: Cleric says Oyedepo and Winners Chapel are in order

A senior university lecturer and Head Pastor of Divine Favour Assembly Ministries, Mowe, Pastor Tayo Popoola has thrown weight behind Winners Chapel aka Living Faith Church Worldwide' Man of God, Bishop David Oyedepo, over the said sack of 41 pastors who were recently laid off by the church, in a controversial circumstances.

According to Pastor Tayo Popoola, "There is a disturbing snag in this story which has been my major concern in journalism over the years.It is disturbing because even tested and experienced journalists like Reuben Abati is echoing this angle the angle of tithes and offerings which were said to have fallen short, and not meeting up to expectation."

Popoola said that he read the sack letter which was forwarded to him, "I did not find a place where the church based their sack of the said pastors on money. It would amount to misinformation and distortion of facts for the media to interprete church growth index to mean generation of money. Why can't they ask Winners Chapel to expantiate what they meant by growth index? Why can't they request for their letters of engagement? Why can't they see the action as an internal affairs of the church?
What is the public interest in the news report?"

Popoola who is also a senior lecturer in Mass Communication, pointed out that, "the members of the public would be better served when the media carry out their job without sentiment, bias and animosity.

"More importantly, the spiritual angle to this matter is that if their motive is to bring the church of God into disrepute, God can sanction them. Rather than this media hype, it would have been better for them to quietly go and float their own ministry. They can even team up to do it," he advised.
