Cleric Sends Saraki To Buhari, Says Nigerians Are Hungry


The Vicar and Archdeacon of Ikoyi Diocese, Venerable Julius Oyetunde, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to move fast and address the threats of hunger and suffering the ordinary people of Nigeria are contending with.
He expressed this concern while delivering a sermon at the funeral service for the late Dr. Ebenezer Aboyowa Ikomi inside the Our Saviour’s Church, Tafawa Balewa Square, Lagos, at the weekend.

He said the economic situation was making Nigerians feel that their lives have only changed for the worse and that government was not doing enough to address the situation.
Citing mass unemployment, inflation and hunger as part of the socio-economic challenges plaguing the country, Oyetunde said “Nigerians now really feed from the dust bin”, adding that such deprivation was not part of God’s plan for the nation.
The Archdeacon urged the Senate led by Saraki to work with Buhari to ensure quick recovery from the current socio-economic problems plaguing the country.
On the anti-corruption fight, Oyetunde commended the government, but suggested plea bargaining option as a way to recover some of the stolen funds which could be channeled to infrastructural development and social services.
Though Saraki could not be reached to comment on the sermon by the clergy, one of the aides in his entourage told journalists that his boss was disturbed by the statements of the cleric who was obviously speaking the minds of the ordinary citizens.
The aide, however, expressed regrets that while Oyetunde addressed the Senate President as the number three citizen with the responsibility to find solutions to the problems, the executive and legislature seemed to be working at cross purposes.
He said: “The Senate President realises that leaders cannot take the people for granted and he is ready to work with others within and outside government to quickly address the problems. Our economy is in recession and Dr. Saraki believes this should bring our most creative side to the fore. He is always saying that we should all think out of the box and get on working to solve these problems.”
