Archbishop urges Nigerians to tackle corruption, selfishness




Most Rev. Henry Ndukuba, the Archbishop Metropolitan and Primate of the Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion, has called on Nigerians, including leaders, to make sacrifices in order to build a better nation.

Ndukuba made the call in an interview with newsmen on Sunday in Abuja.

He said Nigerians must also address the menace of corruption to free resources for the development of the country.

According to him, Nigerians should support the leaders to deal with corruption holistically for national growth.

“If we don’t kill corruption, corruption will kill us.

“We must deal with selfishness in leadership because whenever you give people the opportunity to serve, they will begin to think of what they will gain and not what they can offer,” he said.

Ndukuba said that the Easter celebration was to commemorate the suffering, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ.

“It is a new dawn in the fact that God has done what He alone can do, He is the only one that can turn things around.

“In the midst of this economic hardship, it’s require that we should be faithful and turn away from our wickedness,” he added.

The Archbishop who expressed hope for Nigeria’s future, drew parallel between Jesus’ resurrection and the potential for transformation of the country.

While admonishing Nigerians not to give up, he assured them that “there is light at the end of the tunnel”.

“We do not give up because it’s night or people are suffering, no, as Jesus rose from the dead, God will turn things around for our nation.”
