Cleric seeks better deal for Nigerians
The Catholic Bishop of Abeokuta Diocese, Ogun State, Most Rev. Peter Odetoyinbo has charged the Federal Government to expedite implementation of its programmes, saying Nigerians were fast becoming impatient with the prevailing economic situation in the country.
The cleric, who spoke yesterday in Abeokuta, said what obtains currently negates the change promised by the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) under President Muhammadu Buhari.
In his Easter message, Odetoyinbo regretted that “In present day Nigeria, when nothing seems to be sure politically, economically, socially, morally, religiously and so on, many Nigerians have lost hope, especially in the government of the day.”
He, however, assured that despite the challenges, there was still hope for the country if Nigerians could put their trust in God and pray.
According to him, as Jesus Christ did not give up under pains and sufferings, “Nigerians should not give up under these painful and uninviting experiences in all aspects of their lives.”
“Every Nigerian should keep trying and doing his or her best to survive because as it is now, it is possible every Nigerian would construct his or her own road, sink a borehole or dig a well for water, provide electricity and security and a host of others,” the cleric added.
