Bombshell: Nigerian Churches Are More Corrupt Than APC Government, I Have My Facts – Obasanjo

Ex-President, OBJ might be right on his assertions on the issue of Church and Corruption. But to tell me that Churches are more corrupt than APC is mind-blowing. All the same, you will know why he said so after reading this article.

Former President, Olusegun Obasanjo, has on Saturday, taken a swipe on Nigerian Churches, for contributing to the rampant cases of corruption across the country.

Speaking on Saturday at the Convention of Victory Life Bible Church International, in Abeokuta, Ogun State, Obasanjo said fighting corruption should not be a one-off affair because it would bounce back with vengeance.

Obasanjo, who was represented at the event by Femi Olajide, the Chapel of Olusegun Obasanjo Presidential Library’s Christ the Glorious King Church, called on the Church to clean its Augean stable, in order to restore its holiness.

“There is no doubt that all our institutions have been tarnished by the brush of corruption,” Mr. Obasanjo, a Retired Army General, said in his speech titled: “The Role of the Church in the Fight Against Corruption in Nigeria.”

“If the Church as an institution, does not take the bribe or get involved in other corrupt practices, the behaviour of some of our men of God, leaves much to be desired.
“They not only celebrate but venerate those whose sources of wealth are questionable. They accept gifts (offerings) from just anybody without asking questions. This gives the impression that anything is acceptable in the house of God.

“But if Jesus can chase out those buying and selling from the temple with the declaration that, ‘My house shall be called the house of prayer, but ye have made it a den of thieves,’ then it is time to stand up against corruption.”

“Our present day ‘money changers’ and ‘merchants’ must be chased out of the Church, and put to shame in the larger society.

“While miracles, signs, and wonders are the expectations of true believers, such must be based on righteousness. To preach that one can acquire wealth without labour, is not only deceitful, it is a call to corruption. It is false preaching and it is sinful.
