The former governor of Anambra State, and 2019 presidential candidate, Peter Obi has in a recent statement addressed his observations about messages being delivered by Christian leaders and has spoken directly to them to avoid preaching “prosperity without hardwork gospel.”
According to Peter Obi, such gospel have gradually turned people in the country as people without values, honesty, hardwork and integrity.He also charged Christian leaders to preach the gospel that promotes good values amongst individuals in the society. He gave this charge at the All Saints Cathedral, Onitsha, Anambra State, at the opening ceremony of the standing Committee meeting of Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion.
“We have gradually turned to a religious economy, rather than productive economy. Go to different churches today, you hear things like ‘recieve your car keys’ you then see people who should be more concerned about contributing to a more productive economy falling for such distractions. Let the church rise up and spread the true gospel of hardwork, diligence and honesty,” he said.
