Enough of taking out Nigeria resources to enrich other countries, cleric tells politicians

By Eniola Daniel
The pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Reconciliation Centre, Province 67, Mushin, Lagos, Pastor Ademola Ojo has called on the political class to reconsider that looting Nigeria resources and keeping it outside the country is a way of enriching other nations and making Nigeria poorer
  Ojo made the call yesterday in Lagos when the church fete more than 1000 persons in its yearly charity work, tagged,  Expression of Love.
  In his words, “Today, we speak on mercy, that God is a God of mercy, that he will arise and have mercy upon us for the time of favour has come. I believe that those in the helm of affairs should have mercy on the country instead of putting the country’s resources in abroad, they should use it in Nigeria so that the populace can benefit, thereby reducing unemployment.
  “Our politicians must think of how to make things work, fix everything and make sure that the less privilege is happy because of them. They should not use their  position to enrich themselves alone but rather to minister to the needs of the people around them.  The money they take outside the country  will only help the countries they are taking the monies to
   On the charity, he said, “We had over 800 including children who benefited from this charity work in 2018, but this year, we have over 1000 persons. Today, we are giving out 200 pieces of Ankara cloths and other fairly used clothes, we are also giving out over 20 bags of rice and 13 bags of garri. We also gave out noodles and other items to the children because they too are part of the community that must enjoy the charity work of the church but next year will do it bigger and better than this.
   This is also an avenue for us to minister  to our environment as advised by the General Overseer of RCCG. We will not make a lot of senses if we are doing this bit by bit but we put our resources together so that we can minister to the people at large.
   On if CSR should be institutionalised in Nigeria, Ojo said, “I may say yes but it depends on the capacity of every organisation. There is hunger is on the high side in Nigeria, and if we close our eye, then one day, they may boggle someone’s house so, we need to minister to people around us so that we will be happy together.
