The Spiritual father of the Cherubim and Seraphim Movement of Nigeria Worldwide Ayo Ni o (C&S ) Most Rev. Samuel Abidoye has advised president Muhammadu Buharii to make use of all the recovered looted funds in the country to create jobs for the teeming unemployed youths in the country
This, he said would go a long way of reducing high rate of unemployment among the teeming youths and also stem reported cases of ritual killings and other social vices in the country.
Rev. Abidoye who made the advice at the 77th annual conference of the church held along Ilorin- Ogbomoso road, Orile-Igbon said that, “the high rate of unemployed youths in the country has continued to be alarming and all efforts should be put on ground by the government to bring the situation into a barest minimum.”
According to him, â€œI want to say that, president Muhammadu Buhari should assist the unemployed youths in the country by making use of the recovered looted funds to create jobs for them in order to reduce the suffering being faced these unemployed youths.â€
Reverend Abidoye, who commended Buhari administration on recovery of looted fund from politicians, advised him not to relent, saying corruption had eaten deep into fabrics of the nation, while youth wandered streets in search of jobs.
He also called on Nigerians to support the administration in its effort at implementing people-oriented programmes aimed at making lives better for the people.
The nonagenarian, who condemned some church leaders in the country for always promoting preaching on prosperity instead of salvation, said that such act had increased love of money, criminality and materialism among Christian youth.
“Ritual killing and kidnapping are all because of quick money. It’s a wrong way to look for money. People should stop. What do they really want? When you can’t even take this money along when you die. We should think of nurturing our youth for future greatness since we will leave them behind when we’ve gone. If not they are used for war and other social ills when they are jobless or useless for nation growth”, he said.
He also said that church should lead by example, adding that display of affluence among some men of God had attracted devil into church, while calling on the rich ones to assist poor ones in the society.
Abidoye also called on Nigerians to give President Muhammadu Buhari second term in office for him to have the needed time to make the country great again.
“As far as I’m concerned, President Buhari is doing very well, what he has been doing since he assumed office with particular reference to the recovery of the nation’s stolen money had never been done by any government in this country before.
“In view of this, he needs more time to do this work very well in order to make Nigeria great again, so Nigerians should consider him for second term in office, letâ€™s give him time to do more,” he said.
The cleric also urged Nigerians to ensure that all hands were on the deck to make the country reclaim her glory as the true giant of Africa.
“We don’t need to go anywhere, we have everything in abundance in term of manpower and human development, we can all make Nigeria great again, “he said.
