Mr. Oritsejafor condemned what he described as “institutional corruption,” in Nigeria.
The President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Ayo Oritsejafor, has condemned the failure of governance in Nigeria which has lead to decay in major sectors of the economy.
Mr. Oritsejafor made the condemnation on Sunday at the dedication of the newly completed church building by the Good Tidings Bible Church International in Abuja.
The controversial religious leader condemned the endemic corruption in the country. He said the healthcare system in the country had failed while the standard of education was dwindling.
“How can people be stealing billions of Naira meant for Pensioners? Is it they don’t have the fear God.
“Why can’t we have an international standard hospital in Nigeria where people from outside the country could come for treatment?
“Look at our educational system; the standard is falling at an alarming rate,” Mr. Oritsejafor said.
The religious leader, who recently joined the ranks of billionaire pastors who own private jets, also condemned the incessant attacks on churches in Northern Nigeria, saying “How can people be bombing churches?”
In his remarks, the Senior Pastor of Good Tidings Bible Church International, Dayo Olutayo, thanked God for bringing the project, which commenced five years ago, to fruition.
He enjoined Nigerians to listen to God and obey Him for the progress of the country.
“Every country has trying moment. We are having our own at this period and just like we overcame other challenges, I believe that what we are going through now will be a thing of the past,” he said. “We pray for this nation to prosper and fulfill God’s purpose.”
