Obi urges political leaders to use public money for good
• Muoka Urges Clerics To Pray For Peace
Former Anambra State governor and Vice presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Mr. Peter Obi has implored Christians to pray for those in authority to judiciously use public funds to better the lives of poor Nigerians. Speaking, yesterday, at the ongoing Mgbidi 2019 Crusade by the Lord’s Chosen Charismatic Revival Ministries in Imo State, Obi said he was at the event to be part of the Chosen family, as well as receive prayers.
He said: “Let me start by thanking our dear father in faith and General Overseer of the Lords Chosen for the wonderful work he is doing in helping to build a better society. We ask Almighty God to guide and continue to bless the Chosen family.
“As you have heard, I have never missed any event organised by the church, even when I was governor, and since l left office, I have attended the church’s events in Lagos and here. Last year, I was here and so, I didn’t come here for any other reason than to be part of this prayer and this family.
“As I leave, all I ask from you is to pray for our country and leaders, so that God will touch our hearts to use public money for public good.”The General Overseer of the church, Pastor Lazarus Muoka urged clerics and Christians to pray for peace. Muoka, who fielded questions from journalists, said the responsibility God bestowed on ministers was to cry unto Him for a change. He noted that though men of God cannot go to Sambisa Forest, but they can depend on prayer for a total change. Mouka also argued that righteousness is the key that could end corruption and other forms of wickedness, such as killings, electoral rigging and fraud.
