Following the vaccination of citizens with the AstraZeneca Oxford Covid-19 vaccine, it has been reported that Bishop David Oyedepo of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, aka Winners’ Chapel, declared that he won’t take the vaccine, adding that he wasn’t a guinea pig.
Making this known at the church’s Covenant Hour of Prayer programme, he described the vaccine as illegal and said though the world was confused about the situation, the church has the answer.
Oyedepo said “I have never seen a generation where you force people to take vaccines. It is inhuman; it is immoral sir. I’m not a lawyer but I don’t think it is legal. You can’t come to my house and want to give me injection. On what? Did I invite you? They are confused. But the church has the answer”.
Oyedepo further stressed that, “No apologies. There is a big, big bird in our land, saying ‘don’t take it, they are deceivers’. Let me see someone who will come and inject me. By who? Are you going to tie my hands? How? Did I invite you? I know you are quiet, you will hear more of it. My job is to expose the devil and tell his agents, ‘get off, we are not guinea pigs”.
