According to popular religious media outfit Church Gist, Oyedepo bought the new helicopter with his money, unlike the previous aircraft he had.

The new aircraft is part of moves by Oyedepo and the Winners’ Chapel to evangelise to the world.

Also, the new helicopter, which is in a Lagos seaport for clearance, could fly from Nigeria’s commercial centre to Maiduguri or from Lagos to Abuja and back to Lagos without a need to refuel.

The new helicopter may have been produced by the Leonardo Helicopters (formerly Agusta Westland) and also either the Trekker or GrandNew series.

Concise News understands that Bishop Oyedepo never ceased to speak about how he was inspired by missionaries who visited his hometown of Omu-Aran, Kwara State, in helicopters while he was a kid.

This is as he claimed that God showed him in a vision in April 1982 that he would be flying around the world carrying the gospel of Jesus Christ.

The Winners’ Chapel, later on, bought its first aircraft in March 1996 for missionary purposes.

Prophetic Declaration

Bishop Oyedepo had earlier released the prophetic declaration for the week at the church’s Ota, Ogun State headquarters.

Speaking on the theme of Sunday service, Bishop Oyedepo said the anointing of God is what makes room for exploits.

He noted that with the anointing, barriers are broken and exploits become a natural phenomenon.

The clergyman, therefore, declared to the congregants that “The door shut against your career must be forced open now!

“By this anointing, Your obstacles will be turned to miracles! The door the enemy has shut against your marital destiny must be blasted open today!

“Whatever is not of God in your body tormenting your life, shall be flushed out now! May every of your act of obedience provoke God’s manifest presence in your life!

“I declare your era of open doors now! Every closed door against you is opened up today!”
