Nigerian Pastors Never Preached Against Corruption – Yemi Osinbajo
Acting President Yemi Osinbajo has blasted Nigerian Pastors for failing to preach against corruption in the Country.
Addressing the congregations at the 30th National Biennial Conference of the Students Christian Movement of Nigeria held in Enugu, Mr. Osinbajo stated that preachers are more of prosperity than righteousness.
“Very rarely do you hear our preachers talk about corruption from their pulpits. If a nation is not righteous nothing will help it,” he said.
Mr Osinbajo stated that Nigeria’s real problem is not ethnicity neither is it the religion but systemic corruption.
He said corruption has taken over the country that if you dare challenge it, you will be in the minority.
He, however, urged the youth to change the narrative and make the difference by checking the impunity of those that had stolen the resources of the country.
“Our problem in this country is not ethnicity or religion; it is not about Christians or Muslims. Our problems are the same wherever you go in this country,” he said.
“The story of our country is about good and evil. It is about those that have left us in this condition by stealing our common resources.
“Do not let anyone deceive you.”
