Okah picks hole in Buhari’s corruption fight, as Flock of Christ holds convention March 12
By Okies Veeky
BISHOP Simeon Okah, Bishop, Flock of Christ Mission, Enerhen, Uvwie Local Government Area has picked holes in the anti-graft war of President Muhammadu Buhari , just as he call on the Federal Government to publish the names of those who have looted Nigeria’s treasury.
The Cleric also disclosed that the 2017 week-long, Annual World Convention of the church kicks-off on Sunday, March 12, 2017
Bishop Okah, who spoke to The Urhobo Voice, said that the anti-corruption fight of President Muhammadu Buhari will be meaningless if the names of looters are not published. He said that the anti-graft war of Buhari was not thorough as many individuals who are in his cabinet and are alleged to be corrupt were still walking the streets as free men.
The Bishop of Flock of Christ Mission lamented that politicians who have decamped to ruling APC from other parties are being giving protection by the APC, saying this has made the anti-graft war of the APC selective in meting out punitive measures.
He noted that corruption is killing the country and that if something drastic is not done quickly, Nigerians will continue to wallow in abject poverty, adding that leaders in the country needed the fear of God and wisdom to govern Nigeria.
While appealing to Nigerians to pray for President Buhari’s health, Okah commended Vice President Yemi Osinbanjo for holding fort for the President, adding that Prof. Osinbanjo has done marvelously well from the way he has handled the country in the past one month.
Bishop Okah also lamented that Nigerians do not learn from history, noting that if care is not taken, the APC will do worse than the PDP judging from the way the APC is handling the President’s health status.
According to Bishop Okah, “Nigerians do not believe in history. Some school of thought say, history repeats itself but history does not repeat itself in my own philosophy. If you refuse to learn from history then you will continue to make the same mistake again and again. The history of Yar’Adua should be fresh in our mind. We all know that the problem of this country since the 70s is corruption. God has blessed this country with anything that you can call blessing. But why is it not working? It is because of corruption. Are you not aware that our sons and daughters who are in other countries are doing well?”
He said the carnival-like World Convention is going to focus on the youths in the country because, according to him, a time is coming when Nigerian youths will rise against all the corrupt leaders in the country.
Bishop Okah added, “This convention is one of the biggest gathering of Christians in the country and the South-South part of Nigeria, It’s a world convention that would attract prominent preachers from across the globe, various renowned artists would perform and we are full of great expectations. We are concerned with the future of the Nigerian youths; the future of the Nigerian nation rests upon them, so let’s join hands to bequeath a sound country on a sound footing to them.
“Let’s prepare them for the take over and I believe that in no distant time, the youths shall rise up to the challenge of flushing out these corrupt leaders that has ran the country aground.”
