Christian Students Move To End Corruption In Nigeria



August 13, (THEWILL) – Christian Students under the auspices of the Student Christian Movement of Nigeria, have staged a march against Corruption in Nigeria.

Hundreds of students across the state took part in the march, which took them across major streets of Calabar.

The march was held to commemorate this year’s international youth day and in collaboration with the Priests, peace and Justice Initiative, as well as the MacArthur Foundation.

As part of the event, resource persons presented lectures to educate Christian youths on the role they have to play, as well as religious leaders in the fight against Corruption in Nigeria.

One of the resource persons, Dr Agbaji, in his presentation, said corruption has formed a branded name for Nigeria and is seen as a normal way of life for Nigerians.

Dr Agbaji’s presentation was titled, “The role of religion in the fight against Corruption in Nigeria and combating personal bribe.”

He argued that “Corruption in the church, self-centeredness and selfishness are the primary drivers of corruption, while indiscipline is the chief driver of corruption within and outside the church”, he said.

He posted that the problem is corruption is systemic and we must be deliberate in any kind of solution.

He urged pastors to preach against Corruption from the pulpit and also promote the 3S model, which is to shun corruption, speak against it and stand against it always.

In her presentation, Professor Angela Oyo-Ita, the Deputy Vice-Chancellor Academics of the University of Calabar said corruption “is a hydra-headed phenomenon but can be overcome by the church.

“I strongly believe that the church has the answer to corruption”, Professor Oyo-Ita said.

On his part, Rami Farouk, the co-vice chairman of the World Christian Association urged Christian Students to take a stand against corruption in all it’s ramifications.
