Some Cameroonian Muslim and Christian Faithfuls have said that corruption must be eradicated from the country. This was during an-inter religious service organised on December 10 at the Yaoundé conference centre by the National Anti-Corruption Commission to celebrate the International Anti-corruption day and the end of the African year against corruption.
The service under the Theme “Fight against Corruption: Exploring a Faith Based Solution” began with a Catholic cleric who said “Corruption is sin and a blasphemy. It destroys the human person and the society like a cancer. The priest called on all Cameroonians to live the faith as spotless lamb,” as reported by Journal du Cameroun.
Meanwhile, the PCC cleric opined the true quality of one’s life is not determined by the amount of wealth he has but by the quality of character. “Let corruption not come between us and eternity. Carry your Faith into your job and business places”.
For his part, the Muslim Minister said corruption is an abomination. The preachers from all added their voices through sermons and prayers for corruption to be eradicated.
Reacting to the sermons, the Chairman of the National Anti – Corruption Commission Rev. Dr. Dieudonne Massi Gams, express gratitude to preachers. “We hope that this faith-based solution to fight corruption in Cameroon will bring a breakthrough in the fight by moralizing Muslims and Christians for a change of attitude.
