‘…by the time the fuel subsidy was fully removed, most Nigerians would no longer fend for themselves due to loss of jobs, insecurity, coupled with the political tension caused by the recent controversial presidential election in the country’

The Bida Diocese, Anglican Communion, Niger State has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to provide adequate palliatives to cution the effects of his administration’s poor economic policies on Nigerians irrespective of ethnic, religious or regional affiliations.

It lamented the hardship and sufferings citizens were going through under his administration.

This was contained in a communiqué issued at the end of the Third Session of the 8th Synod of Bida Diocese, Anglican Communion which took place at Gbadafu in Gbako Local Government Area of Niger State.

It also warned that by the time the fuel subsidy was fully removed, most Nigerians would no longer fend for themselves due to loss of jobs, insecurity, coupled with the political tension caused by the recent controversial presidential election in the country.

 The Synod with the theme, “Your Labour is not in vain in the Lord”, according to the communiqué, expressed worry that despite promises and assurances by the President Buhari, insecurity across the country remained unabated.

The communiqué signed by the Bida Diocesan Bishop, Rt. Rev. Jonah Kolo, also emphasised on the state of the nation particularly the activities of the ISWAP, armed bandits and killer herdsmen, politically and religious motivated killings and kidnappings.

While calling on President Buhari to live up to his promises of handing over a united and secured Nigeria to a successor, the Synod expressed worry over unfolding political scenarios in the aftermath of the February 28th and March 18th elections which has kept citizens more divided and more disappointed.
