Poju Oyemade, head pastor of Covenant Christian Centre church has shared his thoughts on the scandal that has seen to the temporary resignation of Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo of COZA from his duties as leader of the church. In a recent post shared on the Instagram of Pastor Oyemade, he expressed his sadness of the turn of events and revealed that the right step is for Fatoyinbo to step aside and sort out the case before continuing as the pastor of the famous church. Oyemade stated that he had tried watching the clip of Busola Dakolo speaking her truth and it was very difficult for him to go through it. He however shared the steps he took in ensuring that the case is handled and certain decisions are made in order to prevent the body of christ from suffering. this is what he has to say:
“My position on the case. I have been asked by many well-meaning people about my position concerning the accusation of rape made against Pastor Biodun Fatoyinbo.

I could only watch the tape by Busola Dakolo for a few minutes, it was difficult to sit through it. From what I heard it is impossible not to be heartbroken and sympathise with her. She must have gone through a lot and then to sit to tape her experience must have been very painful.

She is today a wife and mother of three to have to relive a 20yr old experience.

I immediately contacted the spiritual leader in the Body of Christ I believe Pastor Biodun defers in authority to, to wade into the issue and bring about a decision.
He informed me his position. It was that Pst Biodun should first step down from the pulpit indefinitely, suspend 7days of glory and make a public statement. These he made known to him directly in an hour.
This should serve as the first step. He informed me that was the position and asked my opinion.

We had 3 objectives in mind.
1. Justice
2. Healing
3. Redemption.

I have been informed that the decision to step down and cancel the 7 days of Glory have been made.
It is apparent that the manner in which our Pentecostal Churches were/are born with an individual receiving a call directly from God and we all operating largely as independent bodies, our governing structures are not as strong as in the orthodox church settings with the exemption of Pentecostal denominations where you are appointed a pastor and can be easily sanctioned.
This, however, makes it imperative that we go an extra mile to show a high level of compassion and sense of responsibility for people placed under our care or else what has brought our great growth may be what will destroy us.

For those who have been abused and exposed in our independent pentecostal structures, I deeply apologise and we will seek to build stronger structures through peer reviews and in our relationships.
Thank you and God bless you”

God bless you pastor Poju Oyemade, thank God that we still have remnant believers, who still worship the almighty God, not those that have sold their souls to the devil. the big GOs and bishops are silent now, they pretend as if nothing happens, the likes of Adeboye, Oyedepo, Olukoya, Funke Felix, and so on, pretend as if they did not hear or see what is going on, if it is talk about tithing and offering now, you will see them fighting small kids that are trying to correct them over the internet. Talk ooooh  Biodun Fatoyinbo's god fathers and mothers, see the children you gave birth to in churches and religion, call all of them to order before people descend on you.There is power in people ooooooh, you better hear now. God is raising a people. Revolution is starting in the church, watch and see!!!
