Bishop Sunday Onuoha, Executive Director, Nigerian Interfaith Action Association, has criticized the youths for celebrating corrupt leaders.
Onuoha, who spoke in Abuja on Friday at the Christian Youth Conference, said young people should stop allowing themselves to be used by selfish and violent politicians.
“We don’t need to celebrate corruption and evil. It is wrong for youths to celebrate and demonstrate on behalf of people who have stolen their money,” he said.
“Youths need to tell them to return our money, build industries and factories because if 30 of (Aliko) Dangote are in Nigeria, there would be employment everywhere.
“People stole this money and banked them in foreign countries; something is wrong with the system.
“When you celebrate sin and evil to the extent of giving titles to corrupt people even in churches and villages shows that something is wrong.
“Young people want to see that when people commit a crime, they are punished for it’’.
Onuoha said that Nigerian youths were intelligent people who could match their mates anywhere in the world if given the opportunity.
Urging young Nigerians to reclaim their destiny, the cleric added: “When youths show responsibility, elders will give them role to function.”
