An academic researcher and entrepreneurship development consultant, Engr. Hilary Ijeoma Owamah, on Tuesday pointed out one major sins Nigerian civil servants are committing against God that will surprisingly prevent many from gaining access into the kingdom of God.
Owamah, who is an engineering lecturer at Delta state university, Oleh campus and also a minister of the gospel, told a gathering of journalists during the press week celebration in Asaba, the Delta state capital that a large percentage of Nigerians will, undeniably, lose God’s kingdom because of lies they tell in diverse forms.
Owamah said Nigerian civil servants are fond of telling different degrees of lies to the government in different forms, but noted that irrespective of the kind of lies told, the culprit will never see the kingdom of God.
He said many civil servants tell lies when filling forms, they make false age declaration, reduce their ages to remain in service for many years, even when they are supposed to have retired, noting that undermining the situation surrounding the lies told, the liar has one punishment, and that is denial of access to heaven.
Reports across government ministries and departments are indicative that civil servants make false age declaration, many reduce their ages so as to beat age requirement for employment, some have official age with true age, hence staying in office even when it is obvious that they have outlived their usefulness in their establishments.
But Owamah said the advent of biometric registration has aided to fish out some of these dubious Nigerians, especially in Delta state, saying he was happy that a relation of his who reduced his age, flouting series of warnings he gave him was relieved of his duties with the state government.
