Bishop Charles Ighele, the Chairman, Financial Accountability Council of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria has made it known that Nigeria needs visionary and nationalistic leadership, capable of reviving dead sectors of the economy as well as dying ones.
Revealing this to journalists as part of activities to commemorate his 66th birthday in Lagos State.
Ighele said, “Unfortunately, the Nigerian elites know nothing about nation-building; they are encumbered with the nation’s resources accumulation. Outside Nigeria, in other African countries, there are Fulani herdsmen but they don’t engage in destruction of lives the way they are in Nigeria. The reason is not far-fetched”.
Ighele also condemned the state of education and healthcare delivery system, stating that the starting point to build a nation was with the development of human capital.
Condemning the issue of insecurity in the country, he attested to the fact that bandits appeared to have the upper hand and kidnapping had become the order of the day. He made it known that this have had adverse effect on the socio-economic life of citizens, businesses and foreign direct investment
