US never denied Bishop Oyedepo entry visa ― Winners Chapel

Recent claims that the general overseer of Living Faith Church popularly known as Winners Chapel International, Bishop David Oyedepo, was denied an entry visa into the United States is false, the church has said.

This is according to a press release signed by Prof. Sheriff F. Folarin, Chairman, Editorial and Media Board LFCWW (Winners’ Chapel Int’l).

The general overseer was rumored on Thursday, January 30, 2020 to have been denied an entry visa into the US and created a scene at the US consulate in Lagos for being denied the visa.

But according to the press release, “the Bishop renewed his visa, last year, without any initial denial or drama, or scene. He was also not at the embassy or consulate yesterday or even anytime this year,” the statement read.

Bishop Oyedepo was said to have been in Canaanland all through the week and applied for a visa last in 2019, which was last year, as he was issued the visa without delay.

“The Bishop renewed his visa, last year, without any initial denial or drama, or scene. The Bishop was not at the embassy or consulate on Thursday or even anytime this year,” the statement read.

However, according to the release, “the church had gotten in touch with the US Embassy whom they said were equally surprised like the church about the news.”

The church further encouraged the media to be diligent before rushing to press and try to reach the church from time to time, whenever items try to pass through the rumor mill.

The release ended disclosing that Bishop Oyedepo is a good friend of the US government and has a very good relationship with the US Embassy and Consulate in Nigeria, as he is a social entrepreneur, who has touched so many lives in Nigeria, Africa, the United States and all around the world.
