Sept 12, 2014 – Nollywood Actor Blasts Nigerian Pastors For Not Speaking Up Against Corrupt Politicians In Their Churches

Nigerian actor and film maker, Ugezu J Ugezu has challenged pastors and bishops in Nigeria to stand up against corrupt individuals in the government.

The outspoken movie star says Men of God are a major problem in the country. According to him, corruption abounds in Nigeria because some Pastors are not challenging politicians in their churches.

In his own words:

“Any pastor, bishop or the so called General Overseer that wants to attract my respect must follow the example of Jesus Christ, the apostles and disciples by standing in the gap for ordinary people and speak boldly against bad governance and repugnant policies and decisions of the government in place.
All you pastors that are looking for the big politician you will minister to, pray for, and be rewarded with fat envelope or possible credit alert are just pests.

You are not pastors for Jesus the Christ who is your leader never did that. He challenged bad governance and vehemently spoke against the hypocrisy of the men in power all his life. Next thing you will tell me you are man of God and I wonder who then the man of the devil is.

All ye ‘MEN OF GOD’ are the cardinal part of the problems we have in this country. You are the reasons the people in government are grossly not accountable to the people. You are looking for the money to buy private jets and those of you that already have private jets are looking for government waiver so they don’t ask you to pay the incredible amount airport authorities collect from private jet owners for parking space. Because of these, you don’t ever say anything and our public office holders are getting more corrupt. You guys are just pests, maybe ‘their’ pastors, never mine.

Next thing you will force your blind members into endless night vigils as they pray for good government. Ask yourself a simple question:- is that what Jesus did? Did you read anywhere in the new testament where Jesus gathered the apostles and his followers for a night vigil to pray for good government? Good government can only come when the people are inspired and motivated to challenge the people in positions of authority to be reasonable, responsible, accountable, efficient, effective, diligent, meticulous and conscientious.

Now, if you cannot inspire and motivate your followers to keep the government on their toes, if you cannot open your mouth and do what Jesus did, challenge the men in power and force them do the right things, then you better close that shrine you call your ministry and stop messing up the country.

Do you agree with him?

    I quite agree with you Mr. Ugezu. We know them all. All they want is money and to do anything to be in government either president or vice. False prophets. Anyway it was said in the Bible that there will arise false prophets to deceive the people.

    You are the best Mr. Ugezu. Nigerians by nature are religious people. I am yet to encounter an atheist in Nigeria or a Nigerian atheist. Everything in everyone’s life is attributed to either God or gods or satan. In other words, there is a deep belief in the supernatural. This actually gives these so called men of God a good pedestal to reclaim this our noble country for good. The moment you challenge any politician, the immediate response that follows is attempt to licence you. The bid comes either in a friendly manner or as an enemy. As a friend, they will support “the work of God” with unexpected amount of cash. This is where a true man of God is being tested. As an enemy, they will try to assassinate you. True men of God are neither prey nor afraid. Wake Nigerians. We need true spiritual leaders. Once again, thanks Mr Ugezu

    Thank you brother Ugezu for this wonderful insight. I have been waiting for a courageous individual and a Patriot who will at least bring this natural logic. Brother as you already know we don’t have men of God anymore. Don’t let us deceive ourselves most of these self imposed Pastor are all business men. They are holding tight to these worldly materials and not following the doctrine and teaching of Jesus Christ. Most of them are agents of devil as you have pointed out. To summarize this, I will refer you to when President Jonathan visited Pastor Adeboye’s church for prayer service, instead of him to use that platform to bring the issue of suffering of less privileged Nigerians he was just trying to associate and affiliate with this man. No matter how big Jonathan is, men of God should be respected most. A man of God who is so scare of flesh like himself is not a true man of God. There are lot of ways to do this, I’m not saying he should go to the pulpit and insult him in hostile way but try to appease to him, let him know how people feel and end it with prayer. This could at be another way of reprimanding a weak leader like GEJ.

    Mr ugezu. You are simply the best.You truly nailed it. I don’t know why Nigerians are so naive and gullible. So superstitious about everything. They’re always blaming someone else for their problems. If its not the devil it is god or mother-in-law is a witch. All these pastors are fake liars, pulpit pimps. In Nigeria there are churches in every street. 1 in every 100 person is a pastor. It is obvious something is wrong here. This madness must stop.
