ABUJA (Sundiata Post) – The erstwhile Senior Pastor of Living Faith Church, and Founder of Good Tidings Bible Church, Dayo Olutayo, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to use every available legal means to recover all funds looted from the country’s treasury.
Olutayo gave this charge on Sunday, while addressing journalists at his church’s headquarters in Abuja during the 11th anniversary of the church. He also asked the President to come up with a clearer economic plan to save Nigerians from the present state of abject poverty and insecurity.
The cleric, who noted that the country was experiencing serious economic and security hard times, said that there was hope, and that the nation would surely rise again in line with the vision of the founding fathers.
He said that Nigeria was not poor, but was suffering from the activities of a few heartless persons, who engaged in diverting funds meant for programmes aimed at the economic emancipation of citizens.
“Every country has its challenges, but what Nigeria needs is a national vision. Economies cannot develop without a vision. The leader should tell us what his national vision is so that we know where we are going.
“Nigeria is not poor. We are rich in people and resources. Wealth is not going round because of the distribution system. Only a few persons sit down and take away the wealth of others. That has to change”, the cleric warned.
Olutoya expressed hope in the ongoing efforts of the President to tackle corruption, which he insisted was the cause of this high poverty level in country.
While asking for a national economic direction and good business environment, Olutayo, urged that Nigerians must embrace hardwork and unite to ensure the much needed change in the country.
“We need to go back to hardwork. No country will build Nigeria for us, only Nigerians will build Nigeria. No nation can grow without unity. We need to be united. You are first of all a Nigerian before you are a Hausa or Yoruba man. You are first of all a Nigerian before you are a christian. We must be patriotic and selfless in serving this country”, the cleric said.
