Clergy tasks Buhari on true policy change
President Muhammadu Buhari has been charged to make real, the message of change that would improve the living conditions of Nigerians, and no longer a change of a political mantra. The charge was given in Port Harcourt, by the Dean Emeritus, Church of Nigeria and Archbishop of Niger Delta Province, Ignatius Kattey, at the 3rd session of the 7th synod of the church. Kattey pointed out that, there is high level of political, economic and social decadence in the country, adding that Nigerians are suffering serious pains and difficulties. He regretted that instead of national growth, self serving politicians in the country have taken hold of the seat of power for their own personal aggrandizement. He said: “As God’s servants, we must be reminded that the cries of the people at this point have reached God’s ears. People are dying everyday as a result of insecurity, poorly provided health facilities, poor school systems and learning conditions, while few cart away our collective national fortunes”. The clergy warned that the wrath of God upon people and leaders of such repute is imminent.
“God’s judgement on wickedness is sure and His long hand of discipline would soon come down on evil men and women who tend to take his patient endurance for granted.” Kattey warned. “The time to change is now, in actual fact, the national message of change that Buhari administration now preaches should no longer remain a political mantra, but a clarion call for a new heart and spirit”. He noted that the citizens of the country are yearning for a new direction that will be set by the leaders at all levels. While lamenting the poor state of the economy, Kattey however prayed God to grant the national economic managers new ideas to unravel the hard mystery that is facing the country. He reasoned that for normalcy to be restored, the leaders should begin to serve the people and not themselves.
