Officials of government in Nigeria has been accused of alleged looting of
the nations treasury, resulting to the failure of government in power to
pay salaries to workers and pensioners across the country.
This was made known by the prelate of Methodist Church Nigeria, His
eminence, Dr Emeka kanu Uche, which according to him only few are adjudged
to be free.
He said this while delivering a sermon during the burial of Pa William
Ibekwe Agupusi, the father of the Bishop of Methodist church Umuahia east
Diocese, Rt. Rev. Godfrey Agupusi which took place at Ihube-ikigwe, Imo
He blamed the increasing sufferings, hunger and non payment of salaries to
workers in Nigeria on godfathers who goes to government house every moment
to collect money from the government in power.
The prelate who spoke on the theme titled “finishing well” called on
politicians and all well meaning Nigerians to imbibe good character and
eschew all forms of evil, such that God will elongate their lives as done
to Pa Williams who lived for 111 years.
The clergy who described Pa Williams Agupusi as a man with good principles
and cheerful heart, noted that he lived his life very well and ended well.
“Instead of them to pay workers salaries, They prefer to have so many
godfathers who goes to government house to collect money. So, if you
collect that money, you have become a looter. Both of them are now looters
of government treasury.
“They go to government house to loot and so, the Local government workers,
pensioners, teachers and Principals will not be paid for many months.
“This attitudes is irrelevant, nonsensical, and idiotic. They are doing
that because they are not preparing for eternity” he stated.
Responding, the Bishop Rt. Rev. Godfrey Agupusi also called on politicians
to serve the nation and the people with good heart and eschew all forms of
bad character that would endanger the progress of the country.
He noted that his late father, Pa Williams served his community and church
with good heart, which according to him, was what elongated his life to
the tune of 111 years.
