The Kogi State Chairman of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Bishop John Ibenu has called on President Muhammad Buhari to sit up and not take things for granted saying he should not wait for three years before putting things right.
The Bishop of Chapel of Grace International Lokoja, who made the call yesterday while speaking with newsmen on the importance of Easter said the last 10 months had not been easy for Nigerians.
Ibenu noted that one single policy by the President could correct everything, adding that Nigerians were hungry and he should do something now instead of waiting for three years.
On the recent election conducted in River State, Bishop Ibenu noted that “The immediate past Government held election country wide in every state without this type of acrimony, so for few States and it is becoming so difficult, he should sit up and make sure there is free fair and credible election in the country
“He is fighting corruption we all like it, let that anti-corruption be done properly because what is going on in the election is not quite satisfactory
“He means well but he needs to call to order his foot soldiers to also follow his example to do what is right”.
On the dissolution of the boards of the Federal Universities which the President said was a mistake on his part, the Bishop said the President had set a leadership example and by so doing, shown that he is a human being and human beings are prone to mistakes.
“He admitted he has made a mistake, he has done well and that is a leadership example and I expect
Nigerians to turn a new leaf and forgive him as he said, put it behind them and let us join hands with him to build a future for the benefit of the coming generation and for a solid foundation” he pleaded.
On the importance of Easter, he said Easter was for the salvation of the world, noting that Jesus died for Christians, Muslims, pagans and for everybody to accept Jesus as their personal Lord and saviour.
