Oyedepo carpets Nigerian leaders, says they’re intellectually bankrupt

Nigerian leaders have been carpeted by a world-renowned gospel preacher, Bishop David Oyedepo, and founder, Living Faith Church Worldwide, who stated that ‘many of Nigerian leaders are intellectually bankrupt.

Oyedepo, who spoke at the 20th inaugural lecture of Covenant University on Thursday, a high standard institution of higher learning, founded by Living Faith Church, lamented on the degree of lack of capacity, courage and character exemplified by Nigerian leaders, the Vanguard has reported

According to him; ‘It is unfortunate that many of our leaders are intellectually bankrupt. When confronted with some of these beautiful initiatives, it is very shameful that they often don’t know the meaning. And if they don’t know the meaning, how will they go about implementation?”

I have often said it that our leaders lack three Cs, – capacity, courage and character. Where is the capacity when you are bereft of intellect required of a leader? Where is the courage when you don’t have the political will to follow through with policies that will improve governance?

“And where is the character when all they are thinking is how to win election as many times as possible while ignoring developmental initiatives?’ Oyedepo asked, and the above questions are to be answered by Nigerian leaders.
