Oyedepo’s prayers made me minister – Betta Edu



Betta Edu

The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation Betta Edu says her nomination as a minister was an answer to prayers by respected christian clergy Bishop David Oyedepo at Shiloh 2022.

Shiloh, an annual programme by Oyedepo-led Living Faith Church also known as Winners’ Chapel, attracts millions of Christian faithful in and around the country is held in the first week of December.

The Senate in early August, screened and confirmed Edu as a minister.

She is one of the youngest ministers in President Bola Tinubu’s cabinet, having been the National Women Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) prior to her nomination.

During the 2022 edition of the six-day event, Edu stated that the Presiding Bishop of the Living Faith Church, David Oyedepo, had prayed for her ambition to become a minister in the country.

“Church praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!! My name is Dr. Betta Edu and I came to thank God,” she said on Friday’s Hour of Visitation at the Canaanland premises of the Winners’ Chapel in the Ota area of Ogun State.

“Last year at Shiloh 2022, I prayed and told God that by the next time I come for the next year’s Shiloh, I want to be a minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“On the last day of Shiloh, just as I was walking out, I saw Papa, Bishop David Oyedepo, and I went to greet him and meet him as usual and I whispered to him, ‘Papa, I need you to pray for me. I have just one prayer request now’. And he said, ‘What is it?’ I said, ‘I want to come back to Shiloh 2023 as a minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria’. He put his hand on my head and he said, ‘It is done’. I stood up and I left.

“I came today to return all glory to God that in spite of all odds, today I’m a minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. One of the youngest in the Fourth Republic.

“People my age, are not at the Federal Executive Council of Nigeria in this Fourth Republic. But today, I can boldly stand here to say, ‘God did it’. I came to return all glory to God.”
