Former Aviation Minister, Femi Fani-Kayode, has reacted to comments made by the General Overseer of the Living Faith Church, Bishop David Oyedepo over the controversial hate speech bill.

Speaking at Shiloh 2019 tagged ‘Breaking limit, Oyedepo said: “Hate speech is one of the craziest ideas ever and it’s dead already.”

“Hate speech is one of the craziest ideas ever. You say something truthful about them and they call it hate speech? You can’t silence a man of God because he is called by God’’. He said

“A prophet is answerable to God only, what God tells him, he will say. You cannot stand for God and be a loser.”

Anyway, that (Bill) is dead already. Prophets are the conscience of the nation”- Bishop David Oyedepo.
