Anglican Prelate Knocks Buhari Over Hardship

President Muhammadu Buhari

The Archbishop Ecclesiastical Province of the Niger, Most Reverend Alexander Ibezim, has said that President Muhammadu Buhari's administration inflicted hardship on Nigerians.

The cleric said this while delivering his presidential address at the 1st Session of the 13th Synod of the Awka Diocese of the Anglican Church, held at St Peter’s Church, Agulu in Anaocha Local Government area of  Anambra State.

He said that the regime was marked with killings, kidnapping, looting and inflation, adding that the government also failed to resolve the numerous agitations across the country. 

He also said that the President failed to address the issue of unemployment he promised on assumption of office.

“Nigeria as a nation is blessed by God with human and material resources which ought to be utilized for the good of the people, but unfortunately, the resources that are meant for the benefit of all have been hijacked by few in authority.

“These eight years have been very challenging.

"The administration was marked with incessant killings, kidnappings, unresolved agitations, looting and inflation, increased rate of unemployment and hardship, lopsided appointments, and fuel scarcity.

“The people are yet to breathe the air of democracy. Our politicians show little or no interest in the people they are supposed to be representing.

"The people are tired and they are yearning for a new Nigeria.”

He, however, urged Nigerians to keep their hope alive, assuring that a new Nigeria where justice, fairness, equity, peace and progress would reign, would emerge at the end.
