Nigerians have lost hope in democracy, says cleric
Anglican Bishop of Offa Diocese, Kwara State, Rt. Rev. Solomon Olusola Akanbi, yesterday, declared that Nigerians have lost hope in the democratic experiment, especially under the present administration.
He explained that their despondence stemmed from the level of hardship, which had made the country a difficult place to live in under the present dispensation.
Akanbi maintained that until poverty, insecurity and massive corruption were tackled, Nigerians would continue to live in pain and regrets over the leadership in the land.
Preaching on a sermon titled: Called To Make A Change at the 2021 Trinity Ordination Service of the Anglican Diocese of Enugu at the Cathedral Church of the Good Shepherd on Independent Layout, Akanbi stated that events in the country called for serious concerns and prayers.
“Nigeria has become a country where anything is possible. There is so much corruption in the land to the extent that people can pretend to be sick when being interrogated.”
If we fail to do something drastically about corruption in Nigeria, the youths will see it as a form of normal life.
“Nigeria has become a difficult place to live with the rate of poverty, kidnapping, Boko Haram and killings here and there,” he lamented.
He said some people were getting rich anyhow, but that many were hungry and could not find food to eat, stressing that the rich who neglect the poor would not have peace in the land.
