“Why is it that we pray to God today and our prayers are not accepted? It’s because we are not clean, we are not good people, this government is talking about anti- corruption, let’s support them, even around this present administration, there is corruption, the last administration was a disaster”.

Chindo called for attitudinal change to enjoy God’s blessings.
“If we are Christians and Muslims, what kind of mosque do we go, what kind of church do we go? Let’s change our ways, some people don’t come to the office till around 11, some senior colleagues don’t come to the office, is that the agreement you signed with government? And some people will carry their bags at 2pm and go home, is that discipline? Management when you do contract of N10 million, do you put N20 million? Keys change our ways.
