Cleric blames nation’s woes on church

By Prisca Sam-Duru
LAGOS—Senior Pastor of  Soul Winning Chapel and President, Women Evangelistic Fellowship of the Federation, Rev. Edith Iloh, has said that the many woes facing the country were as a result of corruption in the church.

Rev Iloh, at a briefing  in Lagos, said: “The leaders have so destroyed Nigeria through the monster, which is corruption that nothing is working anywhere. The worse is that the church, which is supposed to be  redeeming  of the nation, is already deep in corruption.”

Iloh, the initiator of  Operation Hope project, a platform through which she caters for widows, orphans and the needy in the country, who turns 70, said: “Things have gone so bad in the country and it appears that the leaders have no clue on how to address it.”

She added that the church must rise up and preach about salvation rather than prosperity.
