Fatoyinbo backs Oyedepo, Says No Room For Laziness Among Pastors


Biodun Fatoyinbo, the Senior Pastor of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly

Biodun Fatoyinbo, the Senior Pastor of the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly,  has supported the sack of pastors from the church by the Founder of the Living Faith Church International aka Winners’ Chapel, Bishop David Oyedepo.

The news of the sack became popular on the internet after one Pastor Godwin claimed that he and 40 others were sacked because they failed to generate enough money for the church.

Bishop Oyedepo while addressing the issue before his congregation, described the pastors who were laid off as being unproductive and blatant failures’.

He also said “People are confused about our Ministry. I learnt some fellows said, ‘you know, they are not bringing income, that is why they asked them to go’. 

“We asked you to go because you are unfruitful. Unfruitful! Blatant failure. Doing what there?” 


Fatoyinbo declaring his support for Bishop Oyedepo took to his Instagram stating that laziness and unfruitfulness cannot be accommodated.

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?”

Fatoyinbo further made his stand known with an illustration from the Bible, “He spake also this parable; A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard, and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none.”

“Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none: cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground? And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it:

“And if it bears fruit, well: and if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down. Luke 13: 6 – 9.”

 Fatoyinbo also noted that laziness is not to have its place in the church and as such everyone is expected to live a productive life or step aside.
