Abakaliki - Gov. Dave Umahi of Ebonyi has advised the clergy not to castigate leaders from the pulpit but guide them on ways of correcting their mistakes.
He gave the advice on Sunday in Abakaliki during an Interdenominational Thanksgiving Service to mark Nigeria’s 55th Independence Anniversary and celebration of 19th year of creation of Ebonyi.
Umahi noted that it would be preferable if the clergy offer words of advice to leaders, especially when they go wrong rather than berate them before the public during church services.
"Leaders in Ebonyi are always open for correction when they make mistakes; as you can reach us through many avenues"
The governor urged the clergy and the people to pray for President Muhammadu Buhari to sustain the fight against corruption and other vices impeding the progress of the country.
