Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Okigwe South, Rt. Rev. David Onuoha, has expressed worry over what he termed “the serious threat corruption is posing to our corporate existence as a nation”.

Rt. Rev. Onuoha made the lamentation in his address at the second session of the seventh synod of the diocese held at Saint Matthew’s Church, Umuezeala Nsu, Ehime Mbano local council area of Imo State.

“It is no longer news that our country sets a new record on this every year and all efforts at reducing the incidences of this national embarrassment succeeded only in the breach”, the bishop lamented.

He was particularly irked that the ever rising profile of corruption in the land means that the issue will remain in the public domain until a solution is found.

“The issue is not these mind-boggling annual revelations. What should disturb us as a nation are the denials, the rebuttals and deliberate refusal to acknowledge an obvious fact”, Onuoha said.

Continuing, the fiery Anglican cleric said: “What this clearly indicates is that this nation and her leaders are not in a hurry to fight this malaise. That we are in a society where funds meant for projects and services that will benefit all and make for national growth are brazenly stolen by a privileged few and still people from the same society appear to quarrel with views of massive corruption in Nigeria calls for a great concern”.
