The immediate past General Evangelist of the Christ Apostolic Church, Prophet Samuel Abiara has affirmed that corruption will not end in Nigeria until the return of Jesus Christ.
Abiara, who recently handed over the mantle of leadership to Prophet Hezekiah Oladeji, said political leaders had looted the nation and kept in bizarre places.
He told Punch that, “There is no way corruption will end in Nigeria before Jesus Christ comes. There is corruption everywhere. It is just that the way each country does theirs is different. But it seems the issue of graft in Nigeria is indescribable. It is disheartening the amount of money people steal in Nigeria.
“They stole so much and keep them in bizarre places. Why do they do this knowing that one cannot live forever? I have come to realise that looters are only rich compared to wealthy people.”
Asked if the country is now worse than how the current administration met it, the cerlic said, “No, I don’t share in that view. One cannot satisfy the world. Even if God gives rain, some people will say it is too much likewise if He makes the weather sunny. God appointed the people in power.
“We should know that Rome was not built in a day. Before they got into power, things weren’t too good and they were expected to correct them in a hurry; in a day. I am not a politician. I am neither a member of the Peoples Democratic Party nor of the All Progressives Congress. We support any government in power. I appeal to Nigerians to be patient with them.”
