In 1993, he became a bishop in the church, and he’s currently heading the church Goshen branch in Nasarawa.

However, speaking at the ongoing Shiloh, Oyedepo extolled the followership qualities of Abioye.

According to Oyedepo: “If this man leaves Living Faith one second the devil will celebrate in hell, he’s solid with me day and night by genuine passion for soles to be saved as a lifestyle.

“He can tell you more stories; he’s been with me on borrowed motorbikes in the valleys and on the mountains.

He follows me so hard; some occultic powers said if you can’t get the church, get the man,” but they testified that he was far above the sky, where they can’t locate him.

Do you have value for God’s presence? Then engage with passion; don’t be a social member of this church, or won’t pay you.”
