BREAKING: Olofa of Offa responds to Peter Obi’s controversial phone call with Bishop Oyedepo

Oba Mufutau Gbadamosi Esuwoye II, the Olofa of Offa, has voiced his opinion on leaked audio of a conversation between Peter Obi, presidential candidate of the Labour Party, and Bishop David Oyedepo of Living Faith Church Worldwide, also known as Winners Chapel.

Obi was heard pleading with Oyedepo to assist him in garnering votes from Christians in the SouthWest and Kwara State.

He also mentioned that he had visited the Olofa, who had stated that no presidential candidate had ever paid him a visit before.

Oyedepo is from Omu Aran, Irepodun local government area of Kwara State, which shares a border with Offa.

Obi stated to Oyedepo that the East and Middle Belt were both in a favorable position, but he expressed concern about Kogi, Kwara, and Niger.

“I went to Kwara and visited Olofa of Offa who told me that nobody had ever come here, with you no problem but the Christian community in Kwara and Niger, and I am also working in Kogi same way”.

Despite the widespread outrage over the issue, Olofa asserted that his name had been incorrectly tied to the political machinations.

The monarch, through his Principal Private Secretary, Olayinka Kadri, issued a statement in his name “Our attention has been drawn to a leaked audio conversation between the Labour Party Presidential Candidate His Excellency, Mr Peter Obi, and the General Overseer of Living Faith Church (Winners Chapel) Bishop David Oyedepo which is making the rounds on the internet, and the insinuations from the so-called “exclusive” tape where the name of our royal father was mentioned and wrongly associated with the political mudslinging and intrigues.”

“It is pertinent to state here that the throne of Offa Kingdom is a sacred and revered stool which should not be desecrated on the altar of political shenanigans and disinformation.

“The Olofa of Offa who is a highly respected first-class monarch in Kwara State is father to all irrespective of your religious, ethnic, or tribal colouration.

“His desire for unity, peace, and progress of our dear country is unassailable. We hereby condemn this malicious and mischievous anecdote aimed at discrediting the revered stool of the headquarters of Ibolo Kingdom and advise the general public and mischief makers to refrain forthwith from unguarded manipulation of facts and disinformation.

“HRM Oba Mufutau Muhammed Gbadamosi Ajagungbade I Esuwoye II has always welcomed everyone to his domain irrespective of their status with open arms and felicitations, and would continue to do so,”
