Cleric blames Nigeria’s woes on poor wealth distribution
Nigerian-born Archbishop of Christian Community Ministries International in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Emmanuel Chukwu Emmanuel, has faulted Nigeria’s wealth distribution system, saying it is responsible for its economic crisis.
The cleric, whose church hosts the largest African congregation in Sao Paulo, is in Nigeria on a missionary trip to establish two branches in Asaba and Owerri.
Speaking recently, Emmanuel said the essence of Christianity was epitomised by the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, adding that if Christ had not resurrected, there would have been no hope for humanity.
He, therefore, urged Christians to trust God at all times, because God has never failed to fulfill His promises; hence his advice to Christians not to worry about the current economic recession.
“There is hardship in the land because of the lack of fear of God. Africa is the richest continent in the world, but does not know how to manage its wealth because the leaders are not God-fearing. They do not believe in the wisdom and knowledge of the distribution of wealth.
“A situation where one man is richer than the country is wrong and that is because of wrong distribution of wealth. There is no magic to advance the economy if our leaders do not know how to distribute the wealth through investments in the country.
“When we stop being greedy and think about our brothers, infrastructure will be better than what we have presently.
