The research was design to appraise the role of the Church leaders in the fight against corruption which has become an endemic in Nigeria. This is because religion is seen to permeate the life of every human being as well as every society throughout the world, and every religion has norms, values and acceptable standards contained in its doctrine. However, with the prevalence of corruption in the Nigerian society today, it is an indication that the role of religion is falling and is losing its potency to correct the vices in the society. Focusing on Christian religion, the research probed that role of the Church leaders in curbing the menace. In carrying out the research, the researchers adopted observational method of data collection, which was complemented with documented sources. The research reveals that rather than curbing corruption, Christianity has been bastardized and commercialized to the extent that it is losing its appeal as a promoter of right values and spiritual standing as a result of factors such as quest for prosperity/materialism by adherents and Church leaders quest for power, victory over perceived enemies; selfish interests, sycophancy and the like. The research concludes that not only has the Christian religion as an anti-virus failed in its function to cure a virus such as corruption, it has in itself become a citadel of corruption. The research therefore recommends that government at all levels, religious leaders, adherents and the entire masses have a big role to play if the fight against corruption is to be successful.
