Bishop Oyedepo: Our Leaders Are Schooled But Not Educated

The Chancellor, Convenat University, Ota, Ogun State, Bishop David Oyedepo on Wednesday said that Nigeria’s leaders must be decisive in order to steer the country out of its current crisis.

Speaking at the world press conference to mark the 10th anniversary of the university, Oyedepo advises reorientation of leadership.
“Nigeria needs a complete overhaul. We have leaders who are schooled but not educated on the values of life. There should be reorientation of leadership.

“Moral decadence has eaten deep into the fabrics of our society. Our nation needs a complete overhaul.”
Bishop Oyedepo while reacting to the mob killing of four university students in Aluu, Rivers State, described the manner the students were killed as inhuman.

“Very soon, people will start eating up themselves. The whole chaos shows the level of insecurity in our nation.
“Our leaders need to wake up. Nothing works in this nation except politics.
“People want to gain political appointments. They care less about the people and more about themselves. This has now provoked restiveness in our youths.”

“It will take the grace of God for us to deal with the moral decadence eating our society.”
Oyedepo also urged parents not to hesitate to give their children good education. He said he had a vision to build four universities in Nigeria and three others in selected African countries before the end of 2013. Oyedepo currently has two universities in Nigeria.
