Bishop David Oyedepo, the founder of Living Faith World Outreach Ministry, is now the richest Nigerian pastor, according to Forbes magazine.

Oyedepo is officially said to be worth over N23 billion, a blogger with Forbes, the American magazine that keeps record on the world's rich.

Bishop Oyedepo's wealth believe that N23 billion is a gross underestimation of the wealth of a man with a publishing company, two universities, four private jets, with a hangar at the Lagos airport and hundreds of thousands of worshippers nationwide who pay tithes, offerings and voluntary donations.

Reports gathered that, Oyedepo once received a single donation of N400 million from a business tycoon based in Lagos.

Oyedepo also owns several homes in London and the United States, according to the report.

Mfonobong Nsehe,the Forbes blogger, said that the official wealth of five Nigerian pastors, including Oyedepo's, is between N31 and 37 billion.
