The United State Embassy in Nigeria has described as false report that it denied Bishop David Oyedepo, founder of Faith Tabernacle in Ota, Ogun state and Living Faith Church Worldwide visa.
Some sections of media (except Blueprint) had reported that the US Embassy denied Oyedepo Visa and that the preacher blew hot over the denial of visa.
But the US Embassy in Nigeria, in its verified Facebook page said the published report was fake news as it never happened.
“#FalseNews Alert! Be advised, the reports making the rounds about a visa being denied to Nigerian Bishop Oyedepo are false.
“If you have seen this manufactured item in the media, help defeat this #misinformation by communicating to everyone that it is completely false,” it said.
Also, the Living Faith Church, popularly known as Winners International, has denied media reports that Bishop David Oyedepo was denied an entry visa into the United States.
But in a statement on Friday, Chairman, Editorial and Media Board of Winners, Prof. Sheriff Folarin, debunked the report.
According to him, the Bishop was at no time denied an entry visa into the US.
He also explained that Oyedepo still has a valid US visa on his passport and would not have applied for another one on Thursday.
