Cleric calls for transparency in the fight against corruption

By Emmanuel Elebeke

 LAGOS —  VICE-PRESIDENT, Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, and General Superintendent of  Christ Holy Church International, Most Rev. Daniel Okoh, has called for transparency in the fight against corruption, saying there is too much politics in the fight.

 Okoh who spoke during the dedication ceremony of the Christ Holy Church headquarters cathedral and unveiling of her new personage at Olodi-Apapa, said it was only the removal of politics in the fight against corruption by the government that could move the country forward in her anti-graft war.

Okoh said though Acting President Goodluck Jonathan had never acted in any away alien to the constitution since he assumed office, he should be mindful of the promise he made to Nigerians that he would fight corruption to the logical conclusion.

 According to him, “Nigerians must be ready to seek the truth in their desire to have an enduring peace and for the nation to experience transformation and development.”

 Nigerians should not allow themselves to be deceived, but instead should see it as a burden to show others the way to truth and righteousness.”

Quoting St. Paul letter to the Corinthians, Arch Bishop Okoh said  “for a nation to experience true leadership and good governance, the leaders must be prepared to carry righteousness into governance and into other ways of their lives. We must carry righteousness into governance and into every  affaires of our lives,  in the communities and places of work.
