The founder of Winners’ Chapel (also known as Living Faith Church Worldwide) Bishop David Oyedepo in a telecast to a pre-Shiloh 2016 Convention gathering of the church monitored via satellite in Jos on Saturday, appealed to critics to stop criticising “Covenant university” his university fees.
Like he said:“One of such critic was smitten with a strange plague of chronic mouth odour over the act. He only received spiritual pardon following his confession and “my intervention before he was restored to dignity”.
HE further said that people criticising the university fee are ignorant of the fact that what students pay could not be compared with what obtained elsewhere that is short of facilities,he added that the issue of school fees charged by the university was a godly agenda to meet the demands of raising godly children in an environs conducive for learning.
Bishop Oyedepo said:
“The school fees has God’s approval and is in accordance with the quality of facilities provided by the university in meeting the educational needs of the nation,”.
He said the church in its pioneering role in pushing the frontiers of education with excellence had resolved plans to start offshore universities.
He prayed for resources for parents to always meet the demands of the time and declared the theme of this year’s Shiloh holding between Dec. 6 and Dec. 10 as “My Case is Different”.
Bishop Oyedepo, however, quoting from Matthew 24:6-8, 1Peter 2:9, Joel 2:2 and Mal. 4:1, said the current economic meltdown was predicted, but that committed Christians would be exempted.
He said a fully automated Bible press completed by the church would soon be launched.
