Mr Joshua Chukwudi, a senior minister of God’s Kingdom Society (GSK), has called on Nigerians to avoid acts of corruption in order not to hinder the progress of the country.
Chukwudi made the call in an interview with Newsmen in Kuchiaku, near Karu, Nasarawa State, on Monday.
He said corruption and evil acts had been delaying the development of Nigeria and that if these were not stopped, it would be difficult for the country to progress.
Chukwudi urged the citizens to be law-abiding to fast-track national development.
“As Christians we are supposed to be the best in terms of character in the society.
“Similarly the Bible enjoins us to fear God and live peacefully with our neighbours,’’ he said.
He said that members of GSK believed that Jesus Christ, the Redeemer of mankind, was born in October over 2,000 years ago.
Chukwudi said the Freedom Day Divine Service, which the church held on Sunday, was meant to teach people the importance of Christ’s coming and called on people to be humble and peaceful like him.
Chukwudi called on all Nigerians to be united and live in peace so that the country could develop.
He said that the coming of Christ would bring perfect peace on earth and urged the people to look for the peace given by Jesus.
