Catholic Cleric, George Ehusani has reminded President Mahammadu Buhari that Nigerians are suffering.
The Bishop who spoke at the weekend during the 35 priestly anniversary and public presentation of a book titled ‘Candle Wax’, an autobiography of Rev, Fr. Patrick Tor Alumuku in Abuja, lamented that many Nigerians are traumatized due to the economic downturn, insecurity, fuel scarcity and poverty.
According to him, despite the sufferings, nothing much was being done by the present administration to ameliorate their pains.
He urged Nigerians to embrace Christ who will give them rest.
“Many Nigerians are suffering as a result of bad economy, insecurity, and nothing is be done to bring succour to them. Jesus Christ represents hope and that is why, Christians lives should be that of daily thanksgiving,” he said.
He pointed out that due to the stressful lifestyle, many are very vengeful which connote unforgiveness.
“Our people tend to be very vengeful, they don’t easily forgive. Without forgiveness, the world will be a cold world of endless strife. If men and women accept the core message of Jesus Christ, our homes will be that of love where children are properly raised in love,” he noted.
In his goodwill message, Archbishop of Abuja, John Cardinal Onaiyekan congratulated Fr. Alumuku for the great work has done within the period.
“As you celebrate this milestone in your priestly ministry, I join you in thanking God for honouring you with the dignity of being counted among those who stand in His presence and minister to Him.
“It is my sincere prayer that the Lord Jesus, the great high priest, who has called you and has sustained you up till this moment will grant you many more fruitful and fullfilling years of devoted service in the sacred ministry,” Cardinal Onaiyekan stated.
