By Dotun Omolaja, Lagos 

The presiding Bishop of Christ Life Church, Francis Wale Oke has called on President Muhammadu Buhari not to forgive any individual caught in his anti-graft war.

 

The cleric spoke on Tuesday while hosting journalist to a luncheon and a press conference to herald the 27th anniversary of the church coming up soon. 

According to him, President Buhari was not elected to forgive corrupt individuals, if he does it means he is covering up iniquity.

“This people have stolen our common wealth and they should be judged accordingly. They were entrusted with our common wealth and not to be voted in office to steal our money. 

“Due to corruption, our economy is bad, roads are dilapidated, hospitals are glorified mortuary and workers are been owed salary, and the masses are suffering” he said 

Bishop Oke stressed that looters in the country must pay for their wickedness, adding that government must not condone corruption at all levels. 

Commending President Buhari on his anti-graft war, he said all Nigerians needs to change their orientation and shun corruption in order for the country to progress. 

The cleric said all the recovered looted funds should be spend judiciously after joint public forum by national assembly members and civil society.

The soft target used for the simulation exercise is the International Conference Centre, Abuja and the agencies involved are the Army, Navy, Air Force, Nigeria Police Force, Immigration Service, Nigerian Customs Service, Federal Ministry of Health, National Emergency Management Agency, National Security and Civil Defence Corps, Federal Fire Service, and all other respondents.
