President Goodluck Jonathan on Friday Praised Bishop Oyedepo, the founder of The Living Faith Church Worldwide, who clocked 60 years on Saturday September 27, 2014.

The Nigerian President praised Bishop Oyedepo for what he described as his massive accomplishments and immense contributions to the education of Nigerian children.

In a statement, the Special Adviser to the president on media and publicity, Reuben Abati, said the president in a letter written to congratulate Mr. Oyedepo on his 60th birthday anniversary said his life was "truly worthy of celebration".

The letter went thus:

"I write on behalf of my family, the Government, and people of the Federal Republic of Nigeria to rejoice with you as you mark your milestone 60th anniversary.

Yours is, indeed, a life truly worthy of celebration. You have attained lofty heights not just as an accomplished selfless servant of GOD, but also in the committed service of community, country, and our own common humanity.

You have not only committed to giving your all in pursuit of the massively impactful propagation of the Word, you have also embraced the cause of providing quality education for our children.

As Almighty GOD continues to bless you with robust health and many more years of happiness, uncommon accomplishment, and fulfilling service, it is my prayer that you will continue to partner with us in our quest to re-position Nigeria for peace, progress and prosperity".

The president wished Oyedepo a very happy birthday.

David O. Oyedepo is reported to be the richest pastor in the world, affectionately called "Papa" by members of his congregation.

Mr. Oyedepo has been allegedly been banned from the UK, for allegations of "cynically exploiting supporters".

In a report by Daily Mail, Mr. Oyedepo's church took 16.7 million pounds in offering from members of his church and told them God would give them riches and good health in return.
