C&S leaders at The Guardian, urge support for Buhari
Korode made the appeal when he led other leaders of the church to The Guardian’s corporate office at Isolo, Lagos.He commended the Buhari-led administration in the fight against corruption, describing the regime as a sign of hope for the nation.
The cleric, who was received by the Executive Editor, Abraham Ogbodo, said he was at The Guardian to announce the second yearly public lecture of the church’s late leader, Apostle Gabriel Fakeye. The lecture held last Saturday.
He said: “We want to use this medium to pray for Buhari so that he could continue with the good work that he had started with members of his cabinet.
“We also commend his effort over the years in having the courage to challenge the hydra- headed corruption in the country.” While urging Nigerians to join in the fight against corruption, he stressed: “If every individual decides to build a culture of excellence, the nation would be transformed, especially as corruption cannot be legislated against but frontally addressed.
Korode said the public lecture also coincided with Faleke’s posthumous birthday.Worried about the incessant kidnapping and armed robbery in the country, Korode appealed to government at all levels to address the issues.
He urged the authorities to focus their attention on the criminalities on the Ore, Lagos and Akure roads among others.The cleric called on credible Nigerians to participate in politics, adding, “If we fold our hands, evil people would continue to rule.”
Ogbodo commended the cleric and urged him to encourage its members to participate in governance so that the ruling class could be stopped from oppressing the electorate.
