Anglican Abacha


It looks like my knack for the prophetic (no tithes please!) is at it again. Just yesterday, I mentioned General Abacha's romance with the late Ooni of Ife, Okunade Sijuwade, but it has been exclusively reported by saharareporters.com that the draconian Abacha was also a benefactor of the Anglican church of Nigeria. With public funds.
Incriminating documents obtained by Sahara Reporters showed that $5m was approved to sponsor Anglican bishops from Nigeria to the 1998 Lambeth London conference, while $1m was given to the then Anglican Archbishop of Abuja, Peter Akinola, who is pictured above.
The other sad side of this story is that Nigerians have become too jaded to such stories, and continue to watch helplessly as monies meant for power, infrastructures, roads, schools and industrialization are diverted to religious fat cats who continue to happily accept and gorge on these funds. So much for the love they have for their congregants. They are certainly not waiting to get to heaven to reap their rewards.
