The founder and the Presiding Bishop of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, Bishop David Oyedepo of the Winners’ Chapel has said during his Saturday’s Covenant Hour of Prayer Programme that he won’t be taking the COVID-19 vaccine and he has no apologies for doing so and his insistence on staying away from the vaccine, because he is not a human guinea pig.
Bishop Oyedepo said to him it is inhuman, immoral and may be illegal for the government to force people to take the vaccine. He said the world at the moment is confused and the church is the only answer. Further noting that it is his job to reveal the devil and its agents which the COVID-19 is one of the devils handwork.

Nigeria after receiving delivery of the COVID-19 vaccine in March, of 3.924 million doses of the AstraZeneca. The National Primary Health Care Development Agency revealed on Friday night April 16, that 8,439 has shown some signs of negative side-effects after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, with over 1 million doses of the vaccine already doled out across the country.
Nigeria has recorded over 160,000 COVID-19 infections and more than 2,000 related deaths.
But the cleric 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 an injection. On what? Did I invite you? They are confused. But the church has the answer.
“Did you see any outbreak of virus here? How will it enter the gate? Will it come through the air? How? One woman just got down after that injection in Kaduna. What kind of life? Are human beings now turned to guinea pigs? The world is confused but the church is lighted. So, the triumph of the church will humble the pride of the world. They don’t know what to do, sir. In the last days, the church will be reigning in power and glory. That is God’s agenda. “
Oyedepo said he owed no one an apology for rejecting the vaccine, adding that he would expose The Devil and his agents.
Oyedepo said, “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’.”
