Hunger, not coronavirus most devastating problem in Nigeria, says Bishop Oyedepo


President of Living Faith Church, otherwise known as Winners Chapel, has said though Coronavirus is deadly, hunger is the most devastating disease in Nigeria.

Oyedep, who made this assertion during the second service, Sunday morning at his Church, Canaanland Otta, despite government instruction against such gathering in the face of the coronavirus pandemic, affirmed that although coronavirus is deadly, hunger is more devastating in the country. 

According to him, “When someone is hungry and doesn't see food anywhere, it is instant death. Hunger is the most devastating in Nigeria.

“We cannot be stopping one problem and leave nine others out. We should fight all of them together. In the hospital, people die daily of fever.

“It is not just the Coronavirus, but the negative severe events. We need help in this country because if  a market woman contacts it, it spreads. Same thing too in our transport system where people lap, and fall on each other in a bus.” he said .

He commended all authorities involved in the fight against this virus, and prayed that our leaders find the right solution as the whole world is finding solution to fight the pandemic.
