We’re Not Guinea Pigs – Oyedepo Says He Won’t Receive COVID-19 VaccinePresiding Bishop of Living Faith Church Worldwide better known as Winners’ Chapel, David Oyedepohas said no one should be forced to take COVID-19 vaccine and asked if humans are now being turned to guinea pigs.

While Oyedepo said he won’t take the COVID-19 vaccine, he noted that the church has the answer to some of the challenges facing the world.

Nigeria commenced nationwide vaccination on March 5 after receiving 3.9 million doses courtesy of COVAX, global alliance against COVID-19.

As of April 16, the National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) said 1,081,548 doses of the vaccine have so far been administered across the country.

Speaking on Saturday during his church’s Covenant Hour of Prayer service, Oyedepo said it is immoral to force people to take the vaccine.

The cleric expressed that the church has the answer to some of the challenges facing the world, while he added that his job is to expose the devil and its agents.

He 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 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 added;

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’.

The cleric has in time past made some controversial claims and comments about the COVID-19 pandemic.

Over 160,000 COVID-19 infections and more than 2,000 associated deaths have been recorded in the country in the last one year, according to statistics by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control.
