Catholic bishop asks Buhari to reduce presidential planes
The Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Ekiti, Felix Ajakaiye yesterday called on President Muhammadu Buhari to cut waste and reflect the mood of the country, by reducing the number of the presidential planes.
The Catholic clergy reminded the President that time is no longer at his disposal, maintaining that time has come for him and his party to effect practical change and depart from sloganeering.
Ajakaiye stated this in his homily titled: Communication and Mercy: A Fruitful Encounter, which he delivered to mark the 50th World Communication Day, held at Saint Patrick Catholic Cathedral yesterday in Ado Ekiti.
The cleric pleaded with the President to learn to follow due process and uphold the rule of law in the affairs of the country, no matter whose ox is gored.
The clergy, who emphasized the need for reconciliation in the country, advised the President and his team to thoroughly study the report of 2014 National Conference and act accordingly.
“I remind President Buhari of the need to lead by example by reducing the number of the Presidential planes (the media reports allege they are between 10 and 12) and fleets of luxury vehicles at Aso Rock, the seat of power. Let us begin to put an end to the culture of waste”, he said.
