Nollywood actor, Pete Edochie, has revealed that African leaders are full of deceit. He suggested that smaller gods should be used to swear them into office rather than the Bible. This was what he said when he visited Ghana, when he paid a courtesy visit to Ghana’s former President, Jerry John Rawlings.

Pete Edochie said, “State officials who swear with the Bible become more corrupt when they are in office. God forgives easily, so these officials do not take the oath serious whenever they hold the Bible to swear.

“But the smaller gods are not merciful like the Almighty God who created heaven and earth. They should swear with gods so that it will put fear in these corrupt leaders to distance themselves from corruption.”

Pete Edochie added, “I will be 70 on the 7th of next month and I see Ghana as my second home. I will try to come and commemorate the independence celebration here. Everywhere I go, people of Ghanaian origin say I remind them of Rawlings, to the extent my own daughters joined in the fray. I agree with people who saw we have the resemblance because I know how I look and seeing him here I have no doubt they are right. It appears we have a lot in common,” Edochie added.
