Bishop David Oyedepo Revealed | “LAZINESS is Black Man Greatest Challenge”

David Oyedepo, Presiding Bishop of the Living Faith Church Worldwide, has declared that the greatest challenge facing the black man today is not intellectual bankruptcy, but laziness and inability to task his thinking faculty towards realising assets that will benefit his immediate environment.

Oyedepo who is also the Chancellor of Covenant University (CU) Ota, Ogun State, challenged academicians to ‘stop being merely bookish and start grooming thinkers’.

Delivering the keynote address at the 54th meeting of the Committee of Deans of Post Graduate Schools (CDPGS) in Nigerian Universities at CU premises, the cleric said his experiences with those in the academia shows that many of them are simply so proud of having become authority in their chosen fields.

He, however, noted that that is not enough as they need to go a step further by indoctrinating in young scholars the art of thinking out ideas which would address some of the challenges plaguing the black continent. The four-day event which began on Monday, would end today, The Nation reports.

Oyedepo said global solution providers such as Albert Einsten, Isaac Newton, and The Wright Brothers among others, once had a brainwave in their time which led to great revolutions in their respective fields. He warned Nigerians that repeated complaints would not work; but that they should battle their challenges headlong.

He said: “Everywhere I go in Nigeria today, everybody continues to complain that things are not working; but who will start how things will work and when? That person is you and that time is now; and post graduate education should serve as a platform for inciting our students into thinking solutions. Today, it is thinkers that rule the world and we should be development-oriented in things we do.”

To make that difference, Oyedepo challenged the deans to start thinking out of the box, saying that is what would propel them to imbibe same culture into their students. “Leadership is not being in the driver seat, but adding values.”
