'The church needs to clear its Augean stables. The temple of God must

be the cleanest to restore the holiness of the church.

Our present-day money changers and merchants must be chased out of the

church. The pulpit must be used to teach and preach righteous and

honest living. To preach that one can acquire wealth without labour is

not only deceitful but also a call to corruption.'



Obasanjo also cautions church leaders to be careful in believing and

celebrating every testimony in other not to end up celebrating

corruption.



'We must be careful in believing and celebrating every testimony of

miraculous blessing, otherwise, we end up celebrating corruption. The

behavior of some of our men of God leaves much to be desired. They not

only celebrate but venerate those whose sources of wealth are

questionable. They accept gifts (offerings) from just anybody without

asking questions, giving the impression that anything is acceptable in

the house of God.'
