Hate speech bill one of the craziest ideas ever ―Bishop Oyedepo

Founder and General Overseer of the Living Faith Church, Bishop David Oyedepo, has described the controversial hate speech bill as an attempt to silence Nigerians.

The Hate Speech bill, sponsored by the Deputy Chief Whip of the Senate, Aliyu Sabi Abdullahi, is supposedly to address issues of discrimination, hostility and violence in Nigeria.

Speaking at Shiloh 2019 tagged ‘Breaking limit, Oyedepo said “Hate speech is one of the most crazy idea 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.

“I don’t know if anyone loves Nigeria more than I do. Imagine they are not hanging killers, they want to hang ‘hate speakers?

“Anyways, that is dead already, if the wicked will not stop his wickedness God will stop his wickedness.”
