“No Room For Laziness” – Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo Defends Bishop Oyedepo Over Sack Of Pastors

Posted by on July 25, 2021 — Drop A Comment

Biodun Fatoyinbo, senior pastor of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), has defended Bishop David Oyedepo over the sack of 40 pastors from his ministry.

Oyedepo had come under fire after Living Faith Church Worldwide (LFCWW), his church, fired the pastors for not meeting certain growth benchmarks.

The cleric had earlier justified the decision to sack the pastors, describing them as “unfruitful and blatant failures”.

But his stance had further ignited the dust surrounding the matter, particularly on the social media.

In an Instagram post on Friday, Fatoyinbo dismissed criticisms trailing the church’s decision, arguing that there is no room for “laziness and unfruitfulness.”

Fatoyinbo, who shared a video of Oyedepo’s reaction to the matter, wondered if the affected pastors would have announced their sack on social media it they were dismissed by a bank.

“Question! ‘if you were fired in the Bank for not meeting up with your deliverables will you go on social media?” he queried.

Buttressing his point, the cleric also cited the biblical parable wherein Jesus condemned a fig tree for not producing fruit as expected.

“He (Jesus) spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none,” he added.

“Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground?

“And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it: And if it bear fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down. Luke 13 : 6 – 9.”

In 2019, Fatoyinbo had been in a legal battle with Busola Dakolo, a celebrity photographer, who had gone public to accuse him of raping her on two occasions when she was a teenager.

An Abuja court, however, dismissed Busola’s claims, ordering the photographer’s lawyer to pay N1 million fine for wasting its time and abusing judicial procedures.
