"It was nice seeing Mr Peter Obi in my church yesterday, I didn’t see him in Shiloh last year but I hope we see him again next year "

The post got reactions from some Nigerians who claimed that Peter Obi was not endorsed by the presiding pastor of Winners, Bishop David Oyedepo, while some claimed he was.

Favour Afolabi claimed:

If you are a Members of Winners Chapel, then it's apparent that you're not a true Son of Bishop Oyedepo!

Bishop has spoken up very openly against the People that are contesting against Peter Obi today for the last 10 years!
Perhaps, you're one those guys that jump around?

Another netizen with the handle, @Xty50560418, took a swipe at Afolabi and wrote:

You are a liar like obi, we prayed for Nigeria and against all enemies of Nigeria, who told u obi is not an enemy of Nigeria.
He said I welcome all of u let the choice of God win, who told you obi is the choice of God. It is obvious papa didn't like obi.

@Fosterejim commented that:

Our DADDY our spiritual Father have told us that the number of votes that APC will gets , will determined the M!AD people in NIGERIA
So if you're in Shiloh this year and still go ahead and vote APC, you don't need any other thing than to be in CHA!N

@yomyum90 said:

"I'm sure he said more than that in 2018 against APC and still we know which party won, even won inside Canaan city polling units. So, follow your daddy while others in the congregation follow their choices. Omo daddy "

Another member, @Akoredeebony, commented that:

How can anyone be this cheap? Do you think Bishop is foolish? Papa will never say anything like that. Papa is not Obidense but a Bishop.
