Corruption: Omokri fires back at Osinbajo for attacking Nigerian pastors

Reno Omokri, the former aide to ex-president Goodluck Jonathan has reacted to a statement credited to Acting President Yemi Osinbajo, where he knocked Nigerian pastors for not preaching against corruption.

Osinbajo on Saturday criticized Nigerian pastors for failing to lend support to the Federal Government’s anti-corruption war by refusing to preach against the scourge.

He stated this at the 30th National Biennial Conference of the Students Christian Movement of Nigeria holding in Enugu, adding that preachers were preoccupied with preaching prosperity rather than righteousness.
“Very rarely do you hear our preachers talk about corruption from their pulpits. If a nation is not righteous nothing will help it,” the Acting President had said.

Reacting, however, Omokri attacked Osinbajo for also keeping mute about the abducted Dapchi schoolgirl, Leah Sharibu, who is still held captive by the Boko Haram sect.

He tweeted: “Yesterday, Osinbajo complained that Nigerian pastors don’t support Buhari administration’s anti corruption war and berated them for not preaching against corruption.

“This is coming from a pastor VP who himself DOES NOT talk about Leah Sharibu.”
