Supreme Head, Cherubim & Seraphim Unification Church of Nigeria, His Eminence, Prophet Solomon Adegboyega Alao, has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to exercise ruthlessness in the fight against corruption.
Prophet Alao made the appeal while speaking to reporters at the weekend during the retreat of the National Council of Prophets and Prophetesses of the Church held at Seraph Land, kilometer 40, Lagos/Ibadan expressway, Maba, Ogun State.
While pointing out the damages corruption has caused in all the facets of the society, he noted that it is only a President that is ready to fight it with iron hands that can succeed in curbing the trend.
Prophet Alao added that Nigerians are confident in Buhari as they believe he would do more to fight corruption, terming it as the reason why they voted him for second term.
According to him, “The little he did in the area of fighting corruption won him the second term but he needs to be ruthless now and fight it without being partisan. The issue of several millions of hard currencies found in an Ikoyi property should not be swept under the carpet. Nigerians must know the outcome of their investigation on it and another huge cash found at Kaduna airport”.
While describing corruption as ungodly, the man of God urged all God-fearing Nigerians to support the President in fighting the hydra-headed monster being blamed for many socioeconomic problems of the country.
Stating that Nigeria is sick, both physically and spiritually, he urged the Prophets and Prophetesses of the Church to pray for the country.
According to him, “We cannot underestimate the power of prayers in solving our problems in this country. It is the prayers of the faithful that keep us together as one today. We must be the moral compass to our teeming youths who engage in social vices and most importantly pray for the President and all our political and traditional rulers to do what is right in alleviating the suffering of Nigerians”.
He also charged the council to purge itself of bad eggs that give bad image to the church and be more determined to work hard and win souls for Christ.
