Sharing is caring!

The General Overseer of Christ The Light Gospel Church, Reverend Solomon Aremu has said president Bola Tinubu ought to have declared state of emergency in three states of the federation following crisis which had affected the wellbeing of the people.

The Ibadan renowned cleric explained that the power tussle between minister of FCT, Nyesom Wike and the governor of Rivers state Siminalayi Fubara , which culminated into the burning of the state assembly complex; the killing and unrest due to insecurity in Plateau state as well as the show of force between the late governor of Ondo state and the deputy shouldn’t have lingered if the federal government had acted swiftly with a declaration or order.

The ugly events in these three states shows that power no longer hold at the centre, this is the beginning of crisis, many people have been killed and businesses distabilised all because of power and state control. The president should have declared state of emergency and removed the warring parties from the control of those states so that there will be safety of lives and property as well as meaningful developments.”

Rev Aremu, who warned that president Tinubu and other democratically elected leaders should not Nigerians conclude with regret that they use their thumb to vote problems upon themselves, called for political will to deliver campaign promises so as to justify the confidence reposed in them.

Many are dead, a lot of people are finding it difficult to figure out their lives, it’s when the government fulfil it’s promises, that’s when the people can have a sense of belonging.

He noted that the masses are tired of failed promises, saying people were wallowing in abject poverty and called on leadership of the three tiers of governments to implement their campaign promises in the interest of the masses.

There’s no stable power supply, there’s inflation on virtually everything in Nigeria, it’s now difficult to import vehicles into the country, even the clerics no longer receive gifts from their congregations because they too are battling with the current realities “

Rev’d Aremu stated that if the leaders failed to heed to the cry of the masses, the Lord can change them before the expiration of their four years tenure in office, stressing that the hardship was too much and unbearable.

There’s no force militating against Nigeria, our politicians are the problem of this nation, we are yet to get it right at the leadership level that’s why other smaller countries mock us as giant of Africa. Our citizens are facing hell all over the world, many are killed, stranded and displaced”

He called on clergymen to speak truth to power, urging them not to compromise, saying they were the last hope of the common man
