The Senior Pastor, Grace of God Mission, Enugu, Bishop Godwin Madu, has urged the wealthy, particularly politicians in the country to have confidence in the country’s public health physicians to solve their medical needs, rather than flying abroad.
Bishop Madu who is also, the Chairman, Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, (PFN), Enugu State Chapter, gave the advice while congratulating Nigerians on the sixtieth Independence anniversary.
The Bishop said Nigeria’s medical experts were being celebrated abroad, and wondered why most rich Nigerians and politicians often did not patronise them, feeling that they were inferior to their counterparts overseas.
He urged the government to give enough budgetry allocation to health sector to checkmate brain drains. The clergyman also advocated the establishment of leadership institute where people who aspire for leadership positions should be taught the basics of governance.
Bishop Madu further frowned at poor maintenance culture among Nigerians, including public infrastructure in the southeast, urging those in political leadership position to see governance as a continuous process. He urged leaders to complete projects initiated by their predecessors, emphasing that abandonment of public projects had not helped in the development drive of the nation.
Bishop Madu equally expressed dissatisfaction with the hike in food stuffs in the market, urging Nigerians to go back to farming. He congratulated Nigerians for their trust in the indivisibility of the country, urging them to continue to pray and choose the right leadership.
