Stop preaching prosperity without hard work, Peter Obi tells Christian leaders

Former Anambra State Governor Peter Obi has urged Christian leaders to resist the temptation of preaching “prosperity gospel devoid of hard work”.

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) stalwart noted that the trend had gradually turned the country into a society without values, honesty, hard work and integrity.

He advised the Christian leaders to spread the gospel that promotes good values in the society.

Obi spoke at All Saints Cathedral, Onitsha, Anambra State, at the opening ceremony of the Standing Committee meeting of Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion.

The event had about 1,000 delegates, including the Primate, Archbishops, Bishops, Chancellors and Lay delegates, from across the country.

Obi said: “We have gradually turned to a religious economy, rather than productive economy. Go to different churches today, you hear things like ‘receive your car keys’ You then see people who should be more concerned about contributing to a more productive economy falling for such distractions.

“Let the Church rise up and spread the true gospel of hard work, diligence and honesty.”

The former governor urged everyone to continue to preach hard work and discipline for societal growth and development.
