The Bishop of Pankshin Diocese in Plateau, Mr Michael Gokum, has urged the Federal Government to be pragmatic in its policy and programme implementation and save Nigerian People from the current hard times.
He made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Pankshin on Thursday.
“Times are hard and the people are really suffering; I hope God will inspire our leaders, especially the Federal Government to do something drastic and save the situation.
“Nigeria is so blessed yet the people are suffering because of the greediness of our supposed leaders, who are starshing billions of Naira within and outside the country.
“The doctrine of putting the interest of others before yours is not being observed here in Nigeria because of lack of fear of God, ’’ he lamented.
Gokum said the situation the country found itself was not God but manmade, which called for drastic action to save it from total collapse.
While commending the Federal Government for its fight against corruption, the bishop said there was need for quick and deliberate action to reduce the suffering of the masses.
According to him, the leaders are servants of the people and should be seen to be serving the people well, else God would not be happy.
“As a people, we should be considerate in whatever we do; the faith in us should inspire us to always do the right thing and not to cheat, ’’ he said.
The bishop prayed for the leadership of the nation at federal, state and local levels to succeed in the tasks given to them for the good of the nation and the citizens.
He also called on Nigerian People to be prayerful and “do what is right for God to help us move forward as a nation.
