Some weeks back, Bishop David Oyedepo, the presiding Bishop of living Faith Church world wide AKA Winners Chapel, Paid a visit to his hometown in Omuaran, kwara state. Bishop’s Oyedepo home town is a small village located in Omuaran In kwara state.
According to the viral video on youtube, the Bishop who was welcomed with a chorus of praises and women dancing with heart felt joy on sighting the Bishop. A group of male singers poured eulogized praise on the bishop.. Bishop David Oyedepo was spotted dancing to the beats of the drum, as he was welcomed to his home town. .Watch the below;
Women from the town also sang for him, after which the Bishop oyedepo prayed for the them all. Omuaran is the Community Oyedepo hails from in Kwara, North Central, Nigeria. The Bishop also has his residence inside Landmark University, Omu Aran. The residence serves as his base when he visits Landmark for Inaugural lectures, Convocation and Matriculation addresses, when he comes to just preach and most likely during TTG etc.
He most likely generally stays here when visiting his community. It is also important to note that Bishop visits his hometown very regularly for various reasons and appears to be quite close to the past Olomu of Omuaran – Oba Charles Ibitoye who joined his ancestors of recent.
Noteworthy is the fact that it was Oba Charles Ibitoye who convinced Oyedepo to bring some colleges of Covenant University to Omu Aran. Oyedepo agreed but later chose to bring a full fledged university to Omu Aran.
Today, Landmark University has over 400 Omu Aran indigenes working the PPD of the University. There are also presumably hundreds more working at the University farms.
The Health Center in Landmark is also very big and serves both the University and the community.
My last visit to Omu Aran had me talking to indigenes and they were all unanimous in the fact that Oyedepo had contributed a lot to their community. The house also probably serves as the base of other Members of the Governing Council of the University.
