Rev. George Adeboye, the founder of Rhema Chapel International Church, Ilorin, has identified corruption as the greatest act of terrorism confronting the nation.
Adeboye said on Tuesday in Ilorin that there was need for the Federal Government to make concerted efforts to eliminate corruption.
“Corruption among majority of Nigerians, particularly the leaders, has destroyed the country and affected all spectrums of the economy,” he said.
He said inspite of the proliferation of churches and mosques; the Nigerian society was still bankrupt morally.
Adeboye, however, expressed optimism that the country would overcome its problems and advised political leaders to be more focused and sincere.
?“What we need as a nation is attitudinal change. No country of the world ever developed today without experiencing what Nigeria is passing through,” he said.
The cleric appealed to the adherents of Christianity and Islam to eschew violence, noting that all religions abhorred killing of innocent people.
“The activities of the Boko- Haram sect are the handiwork of a few people who have negative interpretation of the practice of Islam.
“The Federal Government and security operatives should closely study their activities because I believe that the issue needs to be addressed from the grassroots through dialogue,” he added.
