The Senior Pastor of Praise Arena, Kingdom Light Christian Centre, Jummy Adetoyese-Olagunju, has urged the Federal Government to ensure institutional mechanism to enforce moral ethics and selfless service in the public and private sector.
Adetoyese-Olagunju spoke ahead of the church’s special praise night on Friday to mark Easter.
The cleric noted that the right value system will always produce good society, and an awful value system will breed unsustainable society.
He bemoaned the spate of inequality, corruption, nepotism and inequity, and criminality that has eaten deep into the moral fabrics of Nigeria, and reiterated that these can be addressed when we promote and institutionalise the right value system that everyone can key into.
“It is sad that many public office holders, entrusted with public funds, enrich themselves and families with the fund and they leave the people in penury, abject poverty and untold frustration.”
Adetoyese-Olagunju asserted that the Easter celebration will continue to be a mere ritual and jamboree, and lessons from Jesus’ selfless sacrifice will be lost if we do not exemplify sacrifice, love and honesty that Jesus truly represent.
He added: “Jesus Christ, though sinless, gave up himself and his position to save mankind from doom and eternal debt.
“Jesus is the essence of Easter because he paid the price so that the mankind would experience salvation which comes with peace, unconditional love, forbearance in the heart.”
