A little drama played out at the Lagos office of the Embassy of the United States when the founder of Faith Tabernacle in Ota, Ogun State and Living Faith Church Worldwide, otherwise known as Winners’ Chapel International, Bishop David Oyedepo was denied visa.
However, ace comedian, Abovi Ugboma, popularly known as Bovi got lucky this time around with the embassy as he was issued the visa but his wife, Kris Asimonye, was unlucky.
According to reports (not from iDonsabi), the embassy didn’t state any other reason except the standard default explanation that the Bishop did not qualify for visa renewal in its assessment and urged him to try again.

Heaven was later let loose, when the obviously flustered preacher and businessman, created scene whilst querying the grounds for his refusal, having been a regular visitor to the states as far back as the 1980s and had not violated any rules or committed any crime to have warranted being denied a renewal of his visa.
He later sent for his bodyguards to get his phones so he could make some calls, but the embassy allegedly told him he could not make calls within the precincts of the visa-issuing section of the embassy.

After some calls, he was later granted the visa via a referral.

The USA denied Bishop Oyedepo VISA and you are happy and laughing about it.
Remember you are planning to leave the country too.
That’s how people will laugh at you too when they deny you.
It’s not village people, its just reaping what you sow.

My Bishop Oyedepo was denied visa! Wow.
Seriously, Bishop Oyedepo can stay in his house and visa will come and meet him there but he observed protocols and went to the embassy.
One phone call to White house🏛🏛 and everything will be resolved.
