Badejo backs EFCCs bid to probe churches


The General Overseer of the Four Square Gospel Church, Rev. Wilson Badejo, on Tuesday said the planned probe of churches by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission was a welcome development.

The General Overseer of the Four Square Gospel Church, Rev. Wilson Badejo, on Tuesday said the planned probe of churches by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission was a welcome development.

Badejo said this while briefing newsmen in Lagos on the activities to mark this years Rev. Samuel Odunaike Memorial lecture.

He said there was nothing strange in the EFCC beaming its searchlight on churches, since the church is also a part of the society.

SATURDAY PUNCH had reported a move by the EFCC to extend its investigation to some churches to determine whether or not they were involved in money laundering and other related offences.

Badejo said, Let the EFCC beam its searchlight on the church; let them come. If it comes and finds nothing incriminating, then the church has every reason to beat its chest. But if it comes and find the church wanting, then the church has to look inward and re-evaluate things and make amendments.

This is a great piece of history, which is dear to our hearts as people and very much appreciated.

Many thanks to the people who worked hard in the past and those who are still making efforts to keep the institution.

The labour is obviouly worth it. We are proud of you all.

A lot still to be done, with the motivation of the champions of this course, others will follow as well to maintain the institution

May God continue to keep the edifice for development of future generations to the glory of God and the benefits of our fatherland.
