Anglican Bishop on the Niger, Rev. Owen Nwokolo has called on the president-elect, Gen. Muhammed Buhari, to maintain his campaign promises of fighting corruption in Nigeria.
Nwokolo, who spoke after Easter service at the All Saints Cathedral, Onitsha, said that corruption had been the bane of this country and Buhari made it a campaign issue, saying that he should fight the cankerworm head-on so as to liberate the country from its menace.
The Bishop also told Buhari to ensure the maintenance of existing infrastructures in the country, which he said had gone into deplorable state.
Bishop Nwokolo specifically noted that most of Nigerian roads were death traps and that the impact of the privatisation of power was yet to be felt by Nigerians, urging the president-elect to frontally address this infrastructural deficit in the country.
He said that Buhari should strive to build Nigeria to truly be Africa’s most leading economy, which he said had only been in words because of absence of basic infrastructure, growing unemployment and poverty.
He said that Buhari had been known to be a disciplined, noting that that was one of the factos that helped him in winning the election and urged him to bring to bear his disciplined disposition into the leadership of the country.
Earlier in his sermon tagged ‘He is Risen,’ Bishop Nwokolo charged Christians to be vigilant and dedicated to the service of God by living pious life that would bring glory to God and honour to the church.
He said that the celebration of Easter was a reminder that the lord had risen and to that extent Christians should not dwell in doubt and fear, which have been the most potent weapons the devil use to weigh Christians down.
