Fulfil your promises, Nigerians are crying of hunger – Bishops tells Buhari

The Pentecostal Bishops Forum, PBF, on Tuesday, called on President Muhammadu Buhari to fulfill his campaign promises, stressing that Nigerians are in hunger because of the current economic recession.
Chairman of the forum, Archbishop John Praise made the call while addressing State House Correspondents after a closed-door meeting with the Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Praise also advised the President to hire experts to help him in resuscitating the country’s ailing economy.

According to Praise, “We came from all over the north, we came to pay a courtesy call on the VP. We came to congratulate him and thank the government for their efforts so far since they came in about a year ago, especially in stamping out the Boko Haram menace and in ensuring security all over the nation.

“We came to also talk to him on the need for the nation to work together in unity, to move on in peace, the disturbing factor of the Fulani herdsmen, and to give our advice on how the government can foster unity, peace and progress.

“We are a united nation and nobody should be thinking individually but collectively of making Nigeria great. And, also, let the government know that, yes, we have agreed we are in recession, the people down there who we lead are suffering.

“There are cries all over the place and let the government do whatever it can to alleviate the sufferings.

“We thank God that the President promised he will look at the hunger Nigerians are going through and we do believe that because the President is a man of integrity, he will follow up on his words to ensure that the sufferings of Nigerian masses are reduced. If we have all the infrastructure working, things will work.

“Agreed, we are suffering from the effect of misrule of past leadership. All the same, we believe Nigeria is a great nation, and we can work together with our genuineness, our commitment and our intellectual intelligence to move this nation forward. And they should not be afraid to look for economic experts.

“They should not stop to get who can help in our economic recovery to ensure everything goes on well so that this country can bounce back as a great nation that we have always been. We want to ensure this country remains the great nation we have always dreamt and talked about.”
