The Chairman and General Leader of the Cherubim and Seraphim Movement Church (C&S), Surulere District, Lagos, Special Apostle Sunday Funsho Korode, has urged Nigerians to support President Muhammadu Buhari’s anti-corruption campaign.
The cleric, during a visit to The Guardian with top echelon of the church, commended the Buhari-led administration’s fight against corruption, adding that it is a sign of hope for the country.
He also enjoined Nigerians, irrespective of their faith, to pray for the President’s quick recovery.
While noting that the fight against corruption is a collective one, the cleric said: “We are good at buck-passing, but if every individual would decide to build a culture of excellence, the nation will be transformed.
“We cannot legislate corruption out of existence; we have to fight it.”
Korode added that part of the reason for the delegation’s visit to The Guardian was to thank the organisation for the good relationship it has enjoyed with it over a period of time, hoping that such continues to flourish.
He also used the opportunity to formally announce that the church had concluded plans to hold second yearly public lecture in memory of its late leader, Apostle Gabriel Fakeye, which also coincides with the celebration of his posthumous birthday today (March 11) at the church premises along Apapa/Oshodi Expressway.
He explained that former President Olusegun Obasanjo would be the Guest Speaker, with Rev. Fr. George Bako as Chairman of the occasion, while Chief Remi Omotosho would be the Special Guest of Honour.
On the Southern Kaduna killings, the cleric called on the federal government to muster the same zeal and skill it used to fight Boko Haram to address the issue.
He urged the government to engage the militants in a fruitful dialogue that would open the door for peaceful coexistence and economic growth in the country.
In his remark, The Guardian’s Executive Editor, Mr. Abraham Ogbodo, commended the church for the good work it is doing and charged the church in general to encourage their members to participate in governance with a view to eliminating evil people who have dominated the scene.
