Acting President Yemi Osinbajo has berated gospel preachers for failing to support the Federal Government’s anti-corruption war by not preaching against the scourge.

Speaking at the 30th National Biennial Conference of the Students Christian Movement of Nigeria holding in Enugu, Osinbajo noted that preachers were preoccupied with preaching prosperity rather than righteousness.

He said “Very rarely do you hear our preachers talk about corruption from their pulpits. If a nation is not righteous nothing will help it.”

Osinbajo, according to the News Agency of Nigeria said that the problem with Nigeria was neither ethnicity nor religion but systemic corruption.

He said that corruption had been so entrenched in the country that if you dare challenge it, you will be in the minority.

He, however, challenged the youths to change the narrative and make the difference by checking the impunity of those that had stolen the resources of the country.

Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State commended the organisers of the event for a successful convention.

Ugwuanyi said that Christians needed such events in order to seek spiritual reformation and renaissance, considering the situation in the world.

He said that Christians also needed to contribute their quota towards promoting good living among Nigerians.

Ugwuanyi urged Nigerians to continue to pray for President Muhammadu Buhari and for the peace of the nation.

The National President of SCM, Rev. Eric Ighalo, commended Osinbajo for honouring their invitation..
