Nigeria may explode – Cleric
By Paris - 914 days ago
A former Prelate of Methodist Church of Nigeria, Dr. Sunday Ola Makinde, has raised the alarm that except stringent measures were taken, the country may explode because of the current biting economic hardship in the country.
He also advised the Federal Government and the ruling All Progressives Congress to be fair in their fight against corruption.
According to him, if something urgent was not done about the economic tension in the country, the situation could lead to breakdown of the law and order because the insecurity, hunger, despair and hardship in the country were becoming unbearable.
“The APC is part of the corruption in the country. They are not fit to be there, they must handle the issue of padding very carefully. We are sitting on a keg of gun powder. The day it will explode, it will consume us. So many graduates are not employed. Unemployed people are the people behind the militancy in the Niger Delta region.
“I want to warn Christians in the National Assembly. They should be careful, they should not take the issue of Sharia law and the grazing bill in the National Assembly lightly. Nobody can acquire my land. Northerners cannot acquire my land to graze their cattle. Let them go and graze in their own part of the country,” he stated.
The cleric, popularly called Prelate Emeritus, spoke with journalists in Abuja during the inaugural meeting of retired Christian leaders of majour denominations in Nigeria facilitated by El-Rehoboth Global Leadership Foundation.
