The Osun state branch of Bishop David Oyedepo’s, Living Faith Church (Winners Chapel) is set to distribute foodstuffs to workers in the state who have not been paid for the past 7 months.
PUNCH reports that Osun State Pastor of the Church, Olumuyiwa Emmanuel, on Sunday made a passionate appeal to members of the church to start bringing foodstuffs and money to assist members (workers) who are civil servants.
The Pastor said, ”There are people among us who are civil servants and who have not been paid for about seven months. These people need our help especially at this time.
”Whatever you have, begin to bring them to the church from tomorrow. Bring foodstuffs and money. We must be our brothers’ keepers. Don’t bring clothes; this is not the time for that. There are people who slept on an empty stomach last night and we must not pretend that we don’t know. Bring foodstuff and money; they will be distributed to those of them who need it next Sunday.
”We are going to reach out to them effectively and maximally because nobody must suffer in our midst”.
Osun state Governor, Rauf Aregbesola has been unable to pay state workers for the past 7 months.
