Prophet Samuel Abiara, the immediate past general evangelist of the Christ Apostolic Church, has claimed that corruption is an innate part of human beings and as such will not end in Nigerian till Jesus comes.
The respected cleric however called on Nigerians to support the government in power, noting that Rome was not build in a day.
Abiara also urged the APC led federal government to create jobs for the teeming unemployed youths of the country, Punch reports.
Speaking on the political situation of Nigeria, he said:
One cannot satisfy the world. Even if God gives rain, some people will say it is too much likewise if He makes the weather sunny. God appointed the people in power.
We should know that Rome was not built in a day. Before they got into power, things weren’t too good and they were expected to correct them in a hurry; in a day.
I am not a politician. I am neither a member of the Peoples Democratic Party nor of the All Progressives Congress.
We support any government in power. I appeal to Nigerians to be patient with them.”
He urged the federal government to “create employment for youths. There should be massive jobs to engage the youth massively because idle hands are the devil’s workshop.
I also want to appeal to the Niger Delta militants to stop destroying oil installations. Government should also enter into dialogue with them”.
Going further, Abiara spoke on the issue of hate speech, urging Nigerians to be mindful of their utterances.
“The Bible tells us to be careful of our tongue and what we say. Word is an egg, once it slips, it is hard to gather.
People should be careful of things they say because those things can be interpreted beyond the level they intended them.
Government also needs to be cautious in what they say to the people.”
The respected man of God however insisted that corruption will not end in Nigeria.
“There is no way corruption will end in Nigeria before Jesus Christ comes. There is corruption everywhere.
It is just that the way each country does theirs is different. But it seems the issue of graft in Nigeria is indescribable. It is disheartening the amount of money people steal in Nigeria. They stole so much and keep them in bizarre places.
Why do they do this knowing that one cannot live forever? I have come to realise that looters are only rich compared to wealthy people.
“The difference between the two is that those who steal public funds are only rich. They steal for their greed and self alone. But wealthy people work hard for their money.
They work so hard to empower people by establishing firms where many work. They are conscious that they have to leave legacies long after their death. For example, Alhaji Aliko Dangote belongs to the group of the wealthy.
He empowers many and establishes companies so many can earn a living. My advice to the greedy ones among us is that they should strive to do work that will speak well for them after death,” he said
