The General Superintendent of the Deeper Life Bible Church, Pastor William Ikumuyiwa has pledged that Church In Nigeria will help President Muhammadu Buhari in waging war against corruption which he said is against God.
Pastor Ikumuyiwa who was once be a university don noted that corruption is a sin against God and called on religious leaders to teach their members to live a righteous and godly life.
“The church cannot solve the problems of the whole country, but obviously we can solve part of the problems. We, who are preachers in churches should help our people to understand that corruption is
an evil thing, a sin against God, a sin against society and a sin against humanity in general.
“Therefore, our ministers in the churches should preach to help the people live a commendable, righteous and godly life.”
“But everybody is not in church. Other leaders of religious groups should influence people who come to their places of worship, whether christians or not to see that we all join hands together to combat corruption.”
The cleric who spoke to newsmen in Kaduna shortly after holding a revival crusade in the state expressed optimism that the new government of President Buhari and Vice President Yemi Osibanjo will change Nigeria.
He believed that the duo will bring about the change they promised Nigerians during their campaigns.
“With the past records of the President as well as the Vice President, I believe they meant what they said during the campaigns and I want to say they will really focus on the drive to bring the change they actually spoke about and I believe we will see change.
”The emergence of Buhari as President was ordained by God and l urge the President to rule with the fear of God.
“Anyone in position of government is there by the ordination of God, and so should rule with the fear of God. We should look at whatever mistakes the past government made and see how to sincerely correct those mistakes and not only to dwell on the mistakes but move us forward so that we can have a better country for a new generation of Nigerians.” [myad]
