Anglican Bishop wants EFCC to fight corruption in the church

Rt. Revd. Nathan Inyom, The Bishop of Anglican Communion Diocese of Makurdi has expressed his willingness to work with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to fight corruption in the Church and nation at large.

Bishop Inyom made the call on Tuesday when he led a delegation to visit the Makurdi Zonal Command of the EFCC

The EFCC spokesman, Wilson Uwujaren disclosed this in a statement in Abuja on Tuesday, adding that Inyom expressed concern over the way and manner employed by people to oversee church resources.

While highlighting the issue of corruption within the church, Inyom expressed the Anglican Communion’s commitment to working with the Commission to combat the problem.

He said: “We are here to interact with you, seeking ways of collaboration in terms of trying to understand the workings of the Commission better. How it can relate with the church, especially in terms of handling issues of sharp practices that result in malpractices and misappropriation.”

The cleric, who said that the church itself is grappling with the menace of corruption within its fold, added: “One of my greatest frustrations in ministry, as a minister of God, is that those whom we employ to assist us in overseeing resources end up defrauding the church, carting away huge sums of money meant for the development of the Church

Inyom said Anglicans have utmost respect for the pivotal role played by the commission in safeguarding the financial integrity of the nation, urging the EFCC to increase efforts in raising public awareness about the growing issue of economic and financial crimes.

The Zonal Commander of ACE 1, Friday Ebelo, in his response, expressed gratitude to the Bishop for his visit.

He also sought the advice and prayers of the clergy in order for the country to prevail over the plague of corruption, economic and financial crimes
