Many concerned Nigerians now say he is not a true man of God.
The tuition fees charged by the Covenant University have continued to spark up controversies and even Cool FM’s On-Air Personality, OAP, Freeze, has joined the league of Nigerians calling out to the pastor.
It will be recalled that the popular pastor had said the critics were acting in ignorance and risked incurring the wrath of God.
Oyedepo said the issue of school fees paid by students of the university was a godly agenda to meet the demands of raising godly children in an environment conducive for learning.
“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.”
But reacting to his warning, Freeze lambasted Pastor Oyedepo on his Instagram page @daddyfreeze, saying:"Dear Pastor, please show me where in the bible God spoke of school fees, let alone ordained or 'approved' the price.....Dear Nigerian sheep, follow the shepherd, not the butcher..."
Another Instagram user, @dalacrimwrote: “Jesus healed people without collecting shingbai and here is another deceiver claiming school fees has God’s approval. After building an empire with masses’ contribution.
“I just hope the real God will disgrace all these evil people in public, hiding under the name of God and extorting money from poor people.”
