  • In Nigeria, there have been many strategies and mechanisms to alleviate poverty yet the country continues to exhibit high rates of poverty. Corruption remains the most critical obstacle to poverty alleviation and economic development in my country - Nigeria. Over 70% of Nigerians live in abject poverty. Corruption in Nigeria has its root in permissive culture. Our behavior towards money is our main problem in Nigeria. If we fail to deal with our behavior through proper advocacy and some good reorientation programs, Nigeria cannot be fine.

    Many people in the country, have improper and slavery attitudes toward money & wealth. We have so much people with dishonest behaviors, unstable minds, ever ready to trick or deceive, and carryout unlawful acts for material gain. The federal government may succeed in building strong institutions but may not be able to deal with the root cause of poverty in the country. Fraudulent behaviors are too common in the Nigerian society.  

    Corruption in Nigeria is deeply rooted in greed for money, wealth, & power. 

    Church can help solve this problem. Nearly 50% of Nigerians are Christians. Church has no reason to be quiet about this evil called - corruption.

    The Bible says:                                                 

    Open thy mouth for the dumb in the cause of all such as are appointed to destruction. Open thy mouth, judge righteously, and plead the cause of the poor and needy (Proverbs 31:8-9).

    Defend the poor and fatherless, do justice to the afflicted and needy. Deliver the poor and needy; rid them out of the hand of the wicked (Psalm 82:3-4).

    Christ did not just preach the good news, advocacy is also found in His Ministry (Luke 14:13) (Matthew 19:21).

    Although a majority believe that churches in the country lack the integrity to resist corruption, that many are only interested in their own numerical and financial growth, plus gaining influence and access to people in power, that many are not truly committed to alleviating poverty.

    My anti-corruption Christian initiative "Voice of God Movement" is a movement of the gospel for church reform & societal renewal. We promote often neglected biblical truths among Christians; and we challenge believers to stand up and help control corruption in the country. We produce useful, helpful, and inspiring materials (both audio & print) and we give out free.

    Most of us – Christians and preachers in Nigeria, really need to change our style & approach towards Christianity to avoid fueling corruption in the country. The great commission is not earthly business; it is a heavenly business (Luke 2:49). Our profit is not material but spiritual and goes to God.

    The thoughts of the corrupt mind are incapable of perceiving heavenly things. All its desires, delights, cares, and fears are wrapped up in this present world.

    Church can help control corruption in Nigeria through advocacy alongside some holy actions - by introducing rerientation programs within. Church can help solve the Nigerian problem by introducing anti-corruption Christian academy. Academy that address social issues in the country and also produce redemptive agents - that can help effect positve change in the country.
