On the heels of President Donald Trump of the United States revealing his intention imposing a travel ban on seven countries including Nigeria, false report emanated today that Bishop Davido Oyedepo was denied a US visa.
In denial of the report, the US Embassy in Nigeria reacted to the story that the General Overseer of the Living Faith Church Worldwide a.k.a Winners Chapel was denied a visa by the Lagos office of the United States Embassy on Thursday, January 30.
Via its Twitter page, US Mission Nigeria wrote:
“#FalseNews Alert! Be advised, the reports making the rounds about a visa being denied to Nigerian Bishop Oyedepo are false. If you have seen this manufactured item in the media, help defeat this #misinformation by communicating to everyone that it is completely false.”
People are wondering why the US embassy denied bishop oyedepo visa but granted Bovi;
Well, it’s obvious that America does not want a motivational speaker to come & cash out on their citizens at a tough time as this but would welcome a comedian who can make sad Americans smile. pic.twitter.com/NZtX4h1BDW
