Embarrassingly, Nigeria Sets A New Record On Corruption Every Year – Onuoha
Rt. Rev. David Onuoha
Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Okigwe South, Rt. Rev. David Onuoha, has expressed worry over how deep corruption has eaten deep into the country, as he says it is posing a serious threat to our corporate existence as a nation.
The cleric said this in his address at the second session of the seventh synod of the diocese held at Saint Matthew’s Church, Umuezeala Nsu, Ehime Mbano local council area of Imo State.
“It is no longer news that our country sets a new record on this every year and all efforts at reducing the incidences of this national embarrassment succeeded only in the breach,” the bishop lamented.
“The issue is not these mind-boggling annual revelations. What should disturb us as a nation are the denials, the reb*ttals and deliberate refusal to acknowledge an obvious fact”.
Speaking further, Onuoha said: “What this clearly indicates is that this nation and her leaders are not in a hurry to fight this malaise. That we are in a society where funds meant for projects and services that will benefit all and make for national growth are brazenly stolen by a privileged few and still people from the same society appear to quarrel with views of massive corruption in Nigeria calls for a great concern.”
He however advised Nigerians to pray for the country and shun corruption always.
