As Church members languish in penury… Oyedepo Emerges Only Nigerian with Private Multimillion Dollar Tarmac @ MMA2 min read
A lot of people who have been following the activities of this man of God, who sits atop an auditorium that can accommodate 50,000 worshipers at a go, know that he is not new to controversies, the latest of which we are bringing your way in this edition.
How can one describe a situation whereby our loving Daddy GO is having a swell time while thousands of his followers who cannot afford just two square meals a day still look for money to contribute every Sunday to the already filled pocket of the GO? Take this for instance; the whole world already knows that Oyedepo is one of the few African pastors to acquire a private jet, but what they don’t know is that apart from owning a private jet, the landlord of Canaanland situated at Ota in Ogun State, owns a private tarmac as well!
The tarmac which operates under the name “Dominion Aviation” for the fear of being linked to Oyedepo, we gathered, is the only private tarmac in the whole of Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Lagos which in essence means Oyedepo is the only Nigerian that takes off and lands at a private tarmac!
The question that arises here, however, is why this kind of expensive and frivolous lifestyle from a man of God in the face of the biting economic situation and hardship being faced by most Nigerians, his church members inclusive while in the actual sense of it, the billions of naira constantly wasted on all this frivolity can actually be deployed into other meaningful uses that will better the lot of the masses?

Let’s get something very clear, Oyedepo has not come to put his hands in anyone’s pocket to take out money ! Plus, he hasnt come to drag anyone from their home to be in his church so as to worship!!!!!! People without faith and knowledge are so numerous that they confuse their giving unto the Lord as giving to the GO !! Somewhere in Malachi, the Bible says bring your tithes and offering unto me so that there will be enough in my house and. …..try me if I will not open the gate of blessings unto you that there won’t be room enough and rebuke the devourer for your sake…… choice is yours if you wanna keep faith with the word of God and take him on on his words or you wanna take pastor Oyedepo on ; children of God need to stay focused and know who they are dealing with….Give according to what you can afford, and if you can’t afford nothing, ask and give thanks to God and believe he will bless you well enough to be able to give if you would love to give…..
Well, all one has to do is look at the example the “mega-churches” of America presents to the world.
“And there came a certain poor widow, and she threw in two mites, which makes a farthing. And He called UNTO HIM His disciples, and saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That this poor widow hath cast more in, than all they which have cast into the treasury: For all THEY did cast in of their abundance; but she of her want did cast in all that she had, EVEN all her living.” Mark 12:42-44.
And so it goes today, that the riches of the pastors in today’s megachurches are dependent on the congregations’ poor.
