Hardship: Faces of Nigerians Scary, Assuage Hunger Now, Bishop Onuoha to Federal, State Govts

As the hardship in Nigeria increases on daily basis, a Methodist Bishop has called on Government at all levels to come up with life changing policies and programmes to lift people out of hunger, hardship and starvation, stressing that the faces of Nigerians are scary.

The President and founder, Vision Africa International, Bishop, Dr. Sunday Ndukwo Onuoha, who made the appeal on Sunday, said beyond rhetorics that it was working hard to reposition the economy, the federal and state governments must hurry with whatever good policies and programmes they have for the dying masses.

In a statement he made available to newsmen in Umuahia, the State capital, titled, “Listen to the Cries of the Poor Now to Avert Anarchy”, the 2023 Governorship candidate of the African Democratic Congress (ADC), said it was not an exaggeration that the masses are hungry. He said the look on the faces of Nigerians suggest that they are in dire need of help.

He decried that most families in Nigeria battle to feed once a day, while some who manage to eat are not sure of where the next meal will come from, stating that it has become a matter of urgency that government at all levels hasten up, come up with policies to check rising prices in food commodities and other essentials.

The release reads, “The look on people’s faces on daily basis portray anger, vexation , hunger among others. Nigerians are passing through a whole lot in meeting up with daily demands of their families. Interactions I have had with people over the last couple of months, has further prompted me to believe that Nigerians need a lifeline, quickly too”.

The Global Peace Award Winner, 2013, urged government at all levels to at least revisit their manifestoes and promises made to the masses in order to renew their promises, emphasizing that they are sending a wrong signal to the masses by constantly reneging on election promises made.

“Another missing link I have discovered among the government is their inability to fulfil their election promises to the electorate. I believe that before these promises are made, the ruling class did proper findings regarding the plights of the people. For me, it is an aberration if after you are elected, one fails to impact the people positively”.

The Methodist Bishop advised Government at all levels to avert the impending anarchy in the land, stating that the voices and faces of the governed, suggest that they are not finding the situation in the country funny and at the same time not happy with the political class.
