General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) worldwide, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, has said great expectations await Nigeria if government shuns selective punishment of corrupt officials.

He also stressed that anti-corruption moves must include not just jailing wrongdoers but also confiscating their loots to serve as deterrent.

Adeboye disclosed this, yesterday, at the month end thanksgiving service of the church, themed: ‘Great Expectations’, held at RCCG Headquarters, Throne of Grace, Ebute-Metta.

The cleric also seized the opportunity to pray for landlords, landowners, tenants and others, saying God is ready to turn things around when people seek His face and do the right.

Represented by Assistant General Overseer (Admin and Personnel), Pastor Johnson Odesola, Adeboye lamented the level of corruption in the country, blaming the trend on greed.

He said: “Corrupt Nigerians have made the country look like a rotten sepulchre which is decorated on the outside. Many evils, including the recent building collapse that claimed many lives, only expose the level of corruption and greed in the country.”

“Those that were involved in the building knew what to do. But because of the love of money, they deliberately failed to act. What a grave consequence followed their inaction.”
