CORRUPTION: Activist advocates use of African Traditional methods for oath-taking

Social rights defender and Observer-General of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Patriot Patrick Eholor has said that the best way to eliminate corruption among public officer holders is for them to take oath of office in the African traditional method.

Eholor argued that the Bible and Quran which came with foreign religions lack the potency of the African religion whereby one gets punished spiritually if he or she lies on oath. He said that way, dishonest and corrupt politicians will become extinct in public offices as whoever is seeking office must be ready to be honest or suffer the consequences.

Addressing our media representative in an interview, he stated;

“We have been deceived very well. We have seen Akpabio and the other people confessing. We have seen how corrupt these people are and how the pastors have become very mute over the whole thing. My advice today is that Nigeria has become so corrupt. We must drop Quran and Bible when taking oath. We must come back to African Traditional Religion, ATR.

“Before they are elected into office, they should take oath with Ogun, Alusi, or Eledumare, or Sango. They should take serious oaths, and say, “I swear by Sango, or Eledumare, or Ogun that what I am saying today is the truth and the whole truth. That if I go contrary by looting the treasury, or making the citizens suffer by stealing the money of the country, may Ogun kill them”

“Former president of Ghana, Jerry Rawlings, may God bless him agrees with what I am saying. He said we should go back to ATR, so that all these people stealing our money, when they steal our ,Onye, they will be struck by thunder. If they steal our money and buy a car, the same month they will die by accident.

“When they see that criminals perish like that, they will not steal again. But now when they steal our money, they will pray in Jesus name. They will go to Bible and pray. They will go to church and stay in the front row, and donate money that was stolen to do road. You are a murderer when you steal money meant for road, and people die because of your corrupt actions. If you steal money for security and security was not provided, and somebody was raped, or murdered, is kidnapped, it’s on you. You are a murderer.

“If money is allocated for a hospital and you take that money and take your children to Dubai, and you take your girlfriend to Dubai, and leave people to die, you are a murderer. If you don’t get it now, your children and your grandchildren will get it. It will remain in your family line, that curse, until you change. And you people must change. Because I am going to write to the National Assembly that we are going to dump Quran and Bible.

“The elders and the youths, you must ask questions, you must demand your rights. Enough is enough. You either live free or you die, what’s the point living when you are not free? It’s better we question these people, who are full of banditry, stealing our common patrimony, who are foolish that they take money abroad. They don’t even invest it.

“I wonder why every people that failed us in this country are all P. Pastors is P, not all the pastors, some are good, politicians is P. Everything that failed us is PPPPP, what’s wrong with the letter P? Should we take it off our vocabulary”, he queried.
