Following insecurity and economic crises across the country, Archbishop John Osa-Oni, the National Vice President, South-West, Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, had reportedly pleaded with President Muhammadu Buhari, not to rip the country apart before vacating office in 2023.
Disclosing this in a statement by Osa-Oni stated, “This government came to power on the mantra of change. Perhaps, what it did not tell millions of Nigerians while it was campaigning for change is the manner the change would take.”
He maintained, “We observe that virtually all economic indices are not friendly at all. The naira keeps going down in value. The purchasing power is growing weaker by the day.”
He emphasized, “Many Nigerians can barely live on their income. This is the reason corruption has become somewhat institutional. A lot of workers now take advantage of their offices to exploit fellow Nigerians. The clerk in the office asks for a bribe before he can lift a file.”
He remarked, “The gateman wants to be bribed before he performs his duty. The cleaner has an entitlement mentality. Many civil servants are now compromised because of the need to survive.”
Also, the Christian body reportedly pleaded with the president Muhammadu Buhari, not to tear the country apart before vacating the office in 2023.
