Bishop Chides political leaders

THE Anglican Bishop of Awka Diocese, Right Reverend Dr Alexander Ibezim, has lashed out at political and religious leaders, lamenting they have failed to address rising insecurity, corruption and unemployment in the nation.

He spoke with newsmen as part of activities to mark his golden Jubilee anniversary and two years of Episcopacy as Bishop of Awka Diocese.

Ibezim regretted political leaders do not keep electoral manifestoes, stressing the nation will remain in the doldrums until they change their attitude.

He warned: ”Politicians may escape from EFCC and other law enforcement agents responsible for corruption but they can’t escape from God’s own court. There is God who will judge us all….”

The Bishop visited the motherless babies homes and the Nigerian Prisons, condemning recurring ethno-religious and political killings in the country.
