The General Overseer, Laughter Foundation Cathedral, Pastor Gbenga Oso, has appealed to the Federal Government to use the recovered money from corruption to create employment for millions of unemployed Nigerians, particularly the youths.

The cleric, while briefing the media yesterday on the 20th anniversary of the church scheduled to hold on March 12, 2017 at its headquarters in Oregun, Lagos, expressed concern over the rising rate of unemployment in the country.

He advised the government to urgently put the recovered money into use for the benefit of the people.

According to him: “Economic recession has placed millions of Nigerians in hardship and the situation is being worsened by the high rate of unemployment across the country.

“We should be prayerful to God for a divine intervention in the crisis confronting the nation.

“For the Church, recession is never a threat because its financial base is divine. No recession can stop the Church from achieving whatever it wishes to achieve.”
