President Goodluck Jonathan has joined Nigerian worshippers at the Winners Chapel, also known as the Living Faith Church to pray for peace in Nigeria.
The service was presided over by the general overseer of the church, Bishop David Oyedepo, who reportedly beseeched God to open hell-gate for the political opponents of the president.
According to a report by Pulseng.com, Oyedepo declared his unflinching support for President Goodluck Jonathan’s re-election bid.

Oyedepo reportedly also said: “I pray that God will grant President Jonathan the unusual grace to meet the demands of his office.”
Jonathan on his part addressed the congregation saying: “I don’t want to talk much before I am accused of coming to Church to campaign for election. I plead with you all to keep praying for successful and peaceful election next month.”

“There are various predictions concerning the election, but I trust God to take control of the situation. I commend Bishop Oyedepo for his commitment to the work of God and education, without education we can’t achieve much,” he added.
Oyedepo is one of the clerics supporting the President and has accompanied him on pilgrimage to Israel. He also reportedly witnessed a meeting between former President, Olusegun Obasanjo and Jonathan, along with the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Enoch Adeboye.
