Oyedepo to youths:Nigeria will be great again

The Founder and General Overseer of the Living Faith Church Worldwide and Chancellor of the Covenant University, Ota, Ogun State, Bishop David Oyedepo, has reiterated his strong belief in the power of Nigerians to fix the socio-economic challenges confronting the nation, saying what is demanded is for the people to rise as one and play their parts in the business of nation building without fear or favour.

Oyedepo, who stated this on Friday during the university’s 15th Convocation ceremony, noted that only hard work by the people can make the nation great again, adding that nothing ever works without anyone at work.

According to the Bishop, the fact that his church, otherwise known as the Winners’ Chapel is globally recognised as the single church with largest congregation and with the largest single church auditorium is an indication of greater things to come from the country.

He told the newly matriculated students of the institution to aspire to join the army of youths already prepared to lead the much anticipated change in the country and the continent of Africa, saying the hallmark of the ivory tower are the discipline, doggedness and commitment of both the staff and students to liberate the people from the shackles of unemployment, illiteracy and backwardness.

He said: “As long as you continue to seek relevance, you don’t lose significance. Relevance should be the driving force behind everyman and I urge you all to seek relevance through hard work and commitment. “In my life, no one has ever written my speeches or books for me. I write and edit them. I do this in spite of my very busy schedule.

At least within the last three months, I have been visiting two nations per week, yet I do let myself down in the business of writing. I have already commenced the writing of my Leadership Volumes. You need to work hard and be spiritually engaged to excel. That is the only thing that can guarantee your success.

“Everything we have done here are products of these institutions. We do not look for ranking but we are being ranked high every day. Those are signs that Nigerians are capable of achieving global reckoning for good because we have what will solve our problem. We only need to be committed and united. We will make it and we will rise again.”
