Anglican bishop seeks collaboration with EFCC

The Bishop of Anglican Communion Diocese of Makurdi, Rt. Revd. Nathan Inyom, on Tuesday, mentioned that he is ready to team up with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission in fighting corruption in the Church and nation.

The Bishop made this known when he led a delegation to visit the Makurdi Zonal Command of the EFCC.

According to a statement issued in Abuja on Tuesday by the EFCC Spokesperson, Wilson Uwujaren, Inyom voiced worry about how people handle and manage church resources.

The cleric highlighted the issue of corruption within the church and expressed the Anglican Communion’s commitment to working with the Commission to fight against those problems.

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.”

According to him, the church itself is grappling with the menace of corruption within its fold.

“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,” he added.
