Cleric wants government to address unemployment, hunger
Prophet Godfrey Gbujie, a minister at the St Andrew Anglican Church, Akabuo-Ahiara Mbaise, Imo, has urged government to urgently evolve measures to tackle rising unemployment and hunger in the country.
Gbujie, an ordained Anglican celibate prophet, made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Owerri.
The cleric said most Nigerians were depressed due to the current hardship they were experiencing.
“A lot of Nigerians are experiencing hardship largely due to unemployment, unpaid salaries, among others,’’ he said.
Gbulie advised the government to re-examine some of its policies with a view to reducing the level of sufferings by the masses.
The clergy blamed protests, such as the pro-Biafran groups on unemployment and hunger, adding that government should act fast to reduce unemployment and hunger.
“An idle man is the devil’s workshop. When there is no job, what do you expect?
Gbujie said the situation that triggered off the pro-Biafra agitation in the South-East, existed in other parts of the country.
