Primate Ayodele said Christianity, Islam and the traditional religion should be employed in order to make judgment for corrupt leaders, instead of going through the court process which ends up leading to waste of state resources.
‘’Nigeria has gone deep in corruption and it’s becoming impossible to overcome it. This is because political leaders don’t fear the oath they swore before coming into office. They don’t see it as anything anymore because the institutions which are the judges that swore them in are not even strong enough, corruption has eaten deep into the judiciary system too.
‘’Going forward, the religious system should be allowed to take over the battle against corruption in Nigeria. This should include Christianity, Islam and the Traditional religion. There are verses in the bible that can make a corrupt leader get punished immediately. Let them allow men of God that are deep in spiritualism, punishment of any kind can be invoked on any corrupt leader at little or no cost."
