The Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion, has accused the Federal Government of having misplaced priorities.
According to the church, the Nigerian government is rather concentrating on party politics and neglecting the economic crisis facing the country and the suffering of Nigerians.
The Bishop of Diocese of Aguata, Rt Rev.Samuel Ezeofor, stated this while addressing newsmen after the 13th Women Conference of the diocese at St. John the Divine Church, Oko, Orumba North Local Government Area of Anambra State.
The Bishop called on the Federal Government to focus on the suffering of Nigerians and address them immediately.
“The Federal Government and the leaders should leave party politics to address the economic crisis rocking the country before it leads to a revolution. They should note that Nigerians are suffering.
“The suffering by Nigerians is reaching a height that people will no longer contain it and if it gets to that point, the people may revolt. I think the leaders should know that the people are suffering in this country and there is a limit to what the people can take.
“When you push somebody to the wall and he can no longer go back, he will react. That is what the leaders of the country need to know and if they know that, then they should take the interest of the people at heart and do the right thing which is addressing the economic crisis instead of political party issues”, the Bishop said.
Earlier in her address the President of the Women Ministry of the diocese, Mrs. Chinyere Ezeofor, also called on the Federal Government to immediately set in motion a constructive dialogue that will lead to the restructuring of the country.
According to her, the way things are going in the country portends imminent danger and that they can only be averted through restructuring.
Speaking on open grazing and establishment of cattle colonies, Mrs Ezeofor warned they can only make the constant clashes between farmers and herdsmen worse.
“We advocate for the establishment of ranches in line with the world standard practice and not open grazing as presently advocated by the Federal Government,” she said.
