The General Overseer of the Charismatic Renewal of Nigeria, Dr Cosmos Ilechukwu, while delivering a recent sermon at his church on Sunday October 30th claimed that the change initiative launched by the presidency on September 8th 2016 was borrowed from him and as such the government needs to pay him royalties.

Speaking on when he embarked on the initiative, he said:

“We started this campaign way back in 2009. Actually, the government should pay royalty to us. Since 2009, we have been talking about this change all the while. I’m believer in the possibility of Nigeria changing. I’m committed to it. I have been on it before this government began to talk about it because I have seen the beauty of this country in the future.”
