Anglican Bishop Laments Over Economic Hardship, Pleads On Government To Intervene

21 February

The Bishop of Ibadan North Diocese (Anglican Communion), The Rt. Rev. Williams Aladekugbe has lamented the country’s unparalleled hardship, burgeoning insecurity, poverty, and unemployment since President Bola Tinubu assumed office on May 29 and has pleaded with all tiers of government to intervene concerning the inflation faced.



 



Describing Nigerians as frustrated, hungry, and angry, Aladekugbe called on all tiers of government to urgently arrest the skyrocketing prices of food items, widespread insecurities, criminality, and economic calamities.


 


Aladekugbe further said it was baffling that the current federal government’s championed socioeconomic reforms had inflicted unparalleled hardship on Nigerians.


The Nigerian Tribune quoted him as saying: “We sincerely appeal to all tiers of government to intervene in the skyrocketing prices of foodstuffs in our dear country. There’s no point hiding the fact that Nigerians are frustrated, hungry, and angry.


 


“The president told us to put our minds to rest that the prices of things will come down. Unfortunately, nine months into the government, everyone is in pain.


“The soaring cost of food has escalated the suffering of Nigerians, and crime has greatly increased. Communities across the nation have fallen victim to criminals, resulting in the loss of ancestral lands, economic calamities, and widespread insecurity.


 


“We are presently going through a lot and from all indications, it is only God that can assist us. Let us use this period of Lent to draw closer to God in fasting and prayers. May the good Lord deliver us.”
