Biodun Fatoyinbo, Senior Pastor of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly, has thrown his weight behind Bishop David Oyedepo, founder of the Living Faith Church International aka Winners’ Chapel on the recent sack of 40 ministers from his worship centre.

Addressing the issue while speaking to his congregation, Oyedepo confirmed that the pastors were dismissed for ‘unfruitful, blatant failures.’

Fatoyinbo took to his Instagram to back Oyedepo’s stance, stating that there is no room for laziness and unfruitfulness.

He wrote, “No room for laziness and unfruitfulness. Question: If you were fired in the bank for not meeting up with your deliverables, will you go on social media?”
