As You Fight Corruption, Put Food on Our Table, Bishop Tells Buhari


Ernest Chinwo in Port Harcourt

As President Muhammadu Buhari continues his fight against corruption, the Bishop of the Diocese of Evo, Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Rt. Rev. Innocent Ordu, has called on the Federal Government to also take steps to fight hunger among the people.

He also called on Buhari to define the scope of the fight against corruption and also ensure that it was all encompassing.

Ordu spoke on Saturday during his presidential address/bishop’s charge at the first session of the third synod of the Diocese of Evo at St. Jude’s Anglican Church, Oginigba Deanery, Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State.

He commended Buhari for the fight against corruption but urged him not to be partisan in the crusade against corruption.

His words: “Within his one year in office, the new government of President Muhammadu Buhari has tried to redeem the image of Nigeria in the International Community through his vigorous fight against corruption.

We commend him for this and pray that God will use him to expose all those outside and within his government who have stolen dry the treasury of this country particularly against the backdrop of our being described as a “fantastically corrupt” nation by the immediate past British Prime Minister, Mr. David Cameron.”
