I became minister after bishop Oyedepo prayed for me – Betta Edu

The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs and Poverty Alleviation, Betta Edu, revealed that her nomination as a minister was a direct response to her prayers during the Shiloh 2022 event.

Shiloh, a yearly gathering organised by the Living Faith Church (Winners’ Chapel), draws millions of Christian faithful across the country and occurs in the first week of December.

Reflecting on her experience during the six-day program in 2022, Edu shared that the Presiding Bishop of the Living Faith Church, David Oyedepo, had prayed regarding her aspiration to become a minister in the country.

She expressed her gratitude during the Hour of Visitation held at the Canaanland premises of the Winners’ Chapel in the Ota area of Ogun State, stating, “Church, praise the Lord! Praise the Lord!! My name is Dr. Betta Edu, and I came to thank God.”

“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.”
