Osun cleric urges Tinubu to prioritize security
The founder of Christ Apostolic Church Boanerges Worldwide, Prophet Ade Ologbonyo, has called on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to prioritise the seclurity of lives and properties, noting that Nigerians should be able to get to a level where nobody will be going about with policemen and bodyguards.
The PUNCH reported that Ologbonyo made this call while speaking at Ise/Orun Ekiti on Wednesday at a press conference announcing the weeklong 14th-anniversary celebration of the ministry, which he said would feature praise night, couples’ summit, free health mission, and as well attract firebrand ministers of God.
The renowned cleric noted that security is important because Nigerians should be able to sleep with their two eyes closed
While calling on Nigerians to be patient with Tinubu, Ologbonyo said Tinubu had started well with fuel subsidy removal, however, urging the Federal Government “to urgently come up palliatives to ease the effects of subsidy removal on the people.
He also called for an economic policy that will stop traders and service providers from arbitrary increases in prices of the goods and services.
He urged Nigerians to pray for God’s guidance for the new government to be successful in achieving the much-needed unity in the country, saying, “We are separated and divided already. Tinubu must bring the country back together.
According to him, “Mr President should prioritise the seclurity of lives and properties. We should be able to get to that level where nobody will be going about with policemen and bodyguards. Security is important because Nigerians should be able to sleep with their two eyes closed.
“He should as well work hard to fix the country’s economy which is in shambles. Since the fuel subsidy has been removed, palliatives should follow immediately to reduce its harsh effect on the people.
“The subsidy removal is a perfect step by any Nigerian leader that will do right. Nigerians just need to be patient a little and government too needs to keep negotiating and come up with a palliative to ease the impacts of the fuel subsidy on the people.
“The palliatives should start from the civil servants with the upward review of their salaries. Let there be a price control policy that will help the government to monitor the activities of market women and other traders, thereby stopping them from charging outrageous prices for their goods and services in order not to bring hardship to the masses.”
