According to him, the situation in Nigeria is much more challenging, cognizance being taken of our very peculiar and uninspiring economic situation over the years, coupled with the burden of insecurity that we have faced for over a decade now.

He said: “The poverty level in Nigeria today is not just scary but also terrifying, as over 70 percent of Nigerians are rudderless, poverty-stricken.

“This situation then beckons to those who have received God’s benevolence to also tap from God’s attribute of compassion by lending helping hands to their fellow human beings.”
