The General Overseer of Living Faith Church, Bishop David Oyedepo has been dragged on social media for appointing his second son, Isaac as the national youth pastor of Youth Alive Fellowship (YAF), which is the youth arm of the church.
This comes after YAF, on Sunday via its official Facebook page, announced that the new youth pastor will take the youthful congregation to glorious heights.
“On the behalf of the Youths of Living Faith Church Worldwide, we say a big welcome to our National Youth Pastor, Pastor Isaac Oyedepo as he takes the Youth Alive Fellowship to the next levels of glory,” YAF posted.
The development did not sit well with some Nigerians who took to the comment section of the page to question why the bishop’s son must occupy such position.
But reacting to the appointment of Oyedepo’s son, a Facebook user, Chike Ogugwu wrote, “It’s his father’s business so,let him manage it well.”
Another user wrote, ”Family business, preparing him to take over. Papa, mama, pikin church, may God help us.”
Paul Waiyo, another social media user, described the appointment as a business decision, he said, “A Strategic Business Decision.Best way to go.”
Joseph Ogidiolu wrote, ”Family business enterprise that is based on family heritage.”
Christian Chukwudi said the young Isaac is being positioned by his father to take over from him some day. He wrote,“Gradually Positioning him to take over from him someday.”
For Chibedu Edoga, he wrote, ”Family business is the best, congratulations on your new promotion, every members of the family must be called by fire and by thunder.”
Their comments is coming shortly after the public was outraged following the naming of Jimmy Odukoya, son of late founder of the Fountain of Life Bible Church, Taiwo Odukoya as the replacement for his father.
