For the umpteenth time, Dr. Paul Enenche, Senior Pastor, Dunamis International Gospel Centre has poured out his heart on the state of affairs in Nigeria.
Dr. Enenche, who has been vocal against bad governance in the nation, said it was lamentable that the rich kept oppressing the poor to get richer while the poor got poorer in a country acclaimed to be the giant of Africa.
According to the outspoken cleric, some political leaders had been in power for years, yet, their communities lack basic social amenities.
Speaking on Sunday during a live service monitored on Dunamis TV at Area 1, Abuja headquarters of his church, Enenche, who spoke on the topic, Wisdom for Finances, said some leaders go about spending money on frivolous things while their subjects suffered in abject poverty.
“I heard one time that some people went to a rich man’s house to work and when they opened the ceiling only to discover wads of dollars stacked up there which were spoiling. It is said that such money benefited or profited nobody. In fact, some people are so addicted to money, not knowing that addiction leads to destruction.
“There are so many foolish and useless rich men in Africa and Nigeria. I don’t know of any country has more money in foreign accounts than this nation. All languishing away!
“Unemployment like water, communities that parade rich men are dying of no potable drinking water. We have communities of big men where there are no hospitals and no access roads. What a ‘yeyecious’ and useless bigness of life,” he added.
Dr. Enenche during service gave an instance of a popular medical doctor from Anambra State, who had many hospitals around the world and decided to turn his village around.
According to him, the God-fearing medical doctor went to his village, demolished all the idols and changed the name to Umuchuckwu (Children of God’s community).
He said the doctor also erected a 16-storey building diagnostic center for his people, tarred their roads, sent children to school, provided them with basic amenities and he’s still living in a rented apartment.
He quipped, “That is money with meaning. What if we have just one thousand of such persons in Nigeria, this country would have been like America.
“But sad enough, all they do is to fly fromAmerica to India and from India to Dubaiand other foreign countries on medical tourism, empty Nigeria’s treasury just to make other countries rich.
“Put billions of dollars in another country so they can use it to develop themselves and when the greedy rich man dies, that country takes over the money. That is what we know how to do here.
“So sad we have this mentality of not letting others to rise, you have seen instances where a man sees his bother’s name for appointment and knocks it off because he does not want him or anyone else to rise. Beloveth, note this, riches without outreach equals wretchedness,” he added.
He revealed further, “I recall when some Americans came to Nigeria some years ago and they said they wanted to see how an African village looks like. It was inBenue State.
“So, I asked one of the pastors whose village was close by to take us there because mine is like an hour ahead.
“We went to the village and saw many huts and the people entered and asked, where is the air conditioner? And we told them, that is the air conditioner there, if you open the small window there, air will come in and condition the room. They asked for toilet and were shocked there was none in the hut.
“See what happened, we stepped into four huts, and we told the people, because we have stepped into these huts, we are breaking them down and building new houses with modern materials.
“We also went to the primary school opposite same place and we decided to rebuild the school.
“When it was commissioned, the deputy governor of the state went with us.
“Amazingly, it was during the commissioning that the village head told us that those huts we entered belonged to some orphans, but we never knew.
“He said the huts belonged to children whose parents had died and they had no money to even change the thatched roof. Rain was beating them during the rainy season inside the same huts.
“They had to labour on farms to fend for themselves. We were not aware of all these before we took our action.
“We didn’t go there with such intention, but we saw the need and God quickened our heart to change their story.
“This is amidst countless other community development projects we have consistently embarked upon over the years.
“I am not here to score any point, God knows, the only reason I said this is because examples communicate principles, illustrations communicate instruction.
“Note this, you are not rich with the amount of money or things you have, you are rich with number of people you have reached.”
The cleric also prayed against killers and their sponsors in the nation, averring that anyone behind the killings in the nation will know no peace.

New accuser claims Brett Kavanaugh put his private part in her face at Yale
The New Yorker published a bombshell story on Sunday ahead of Kavanaugh’s Thursday hearing in D.C., where he’s already set to face-off against Christine Blasey Ford who has accused him of a sexual assault when they were both in high school.
The sexual assault claims brought against Brett Kavanaugh led to the Twitter hashtag #WhyIDidn’tReport after US President Donald Trump defended him and asked his accuser why she didn’t speak up years ago (read here).
In the latest accusation made against Brett Kavanaugh, a woman named Deborah Ramirez claims Kavanaugh put his exposed penis in her face at a dorm party during their freshman year at Yale sometime between 1983 and ’84. She says she got drunk during a drinking game, and that at one point a male classmate (not Kavanaugh) pointed a dildo at her.
In this new story, written by Ronan Farrow and Jane Mayer, the woman says soon after she was on the floor, foggy and slurring her words when she says she remembers seeing a real penis smack dab in her face. She tells the New Yorker she recalls other students telling her to kiss it. Ramirez says she pushed the person away, touching the penis in the process, and then saw Kavanaugh standing next to her, pulling his pants up and laughing.
She says she also remembers another student shouting down the hall, “Brett Kavanaugh just put his penis in Debbie’s face.” Ramirez says she specifically remembers hearing his full name.
Ramirez admits that parts of her memory on the alleged incident are fuzzy, but the New Yorker notes “After six days of carefully assessing her memories and consulting with her attorney” Ramirez felt confident in the details of her story.
As for Kavanaugh, he tells the New Yorker:
This alleged event from 35 years ago did not happen. The people who knew me then know that this did not happen, and have said so. This is a smear, plain and simple. I look forward to testifying on Thursday about the truth, and defending my good name–and the reputation for character and integrity I have spent a lifetime building–against these last-minute allegations.
A White House spokesperson also expressed support for Kavanaugh.
Kavanaugh is still waiting to be confirmed to the Supreme Court as President Trump’s latest nominee.
