Nigerian feminists come for Bishop Oyedepo over marriage comments

Nigerian feminists come for Bishop Oyedepo over marriage comments
.
.
The Nigeria Feminist Forum has c*ndemned the founder of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, Bishop David Oyedepo’s recent remark on feminism and marriage.
.
.
Recall that during a recent sermon, the clergyman warned women against joining the feminist movement as he stated that feminism would lead to fr*stration and d*vastation.
.
.
Reacting to the remark in a statement issued on Thursday, August 12, the NFF, through its Communications Officer, Angela Nkwo, said its members were not happy with Oyedepo’s view.
.
.
The group advised Oyedepo to focus on suggesting solutions to how the challenges confronting Nigeria could be subdued.
.
.
“Casting huge aspersions on being a woman, its definition and expectations therein when he advised women against joining the feminist movement because it leads to fr*stration and d*vastation; contrary to the claims spread by people, feminism is about demanding gender equity, justice and access to equal resources for everyone, which will benefit families, communities and the wider society as a whole.
.
.
The cleric’s comments justified the notion that women do not lead branches of the church popularly called Winners chapel, this c*ndemnable as women form a followership of the congregation.
.
.
We need to ask the eminent cleric, did feminists and the coalition’s cause the unpr*ductivity of his pastors, or the ins*curity and high inflation that have enveloped the nation?,” the statement reads in part.
