Jonathan dumps Oritsejafor

Abuja - President Goodluck Jonathan has replaced his erstwhile close friend and business associate, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor as the arrowhead of his re-election campaign among Nigerian Christians, reports NewsDay.

In his stead, President Jonathan has settled for President of Living Faith Church (Winners Chapel), Bishop David Oyedepo.

Jonathan believes Oyedepo’s church with with over 4 million members is of more political asset than Oritsejafor, who many believe has lost his political value due to the numerous scandals around him.

Aside Oyedepo, President Jonathan has also enlisted the support of popular pastors like Paul Enenche, Paul Adefarasin, Uma Ukpa
