President Goodluck Jonathan has been advised to emulate his Malawian counterpart, Joyce Banda by paying more attention to the welfare of the people.
The President, Cherubim and Seraphim Movement Church Worldwide, Most Revd Samuel Abidoye made this call as he said there was an urgent need for the government to address the high rate of unemployment and poverty in Nigeria.
According to Abidoye, the citizens would not be suffering if the abundant resources at the country’s disposal had been judiciously utilised.
“That is the kind of person we want to rule Nigeria. I think we should go to the lady and learn,” Abidoye told Punch when he visited Punch Place on Friday.
“Nigeria is so blessed with everything to take care of everybody, but many cannot eat three square meals; some can’t even eat two.
“Let the government know that many people are suffering. The cry of the poor is too loud. When I look at what God has given Nigeria and how the people live their lives, the gap is too wide.”
Abidoye said the spate of insecurity in the country might persist unless the government reduced the high rate of unemployment in the country.
