The Leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele, on Friday adviced President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration to find a lasting solution to the current economic crisis that has led to an increase in food prices and other essential commodities.
The clergyman warned that failure to address the situation may lead to nationwide protest.
In a statement by his media aide, Osho Oluwatosin, Ayodele said: ‘’Nigerians will protest because of the hike in food prices. There will be so much hardship which will cause the government the unexpected. The president must see into food matters otherwise Nigeria will go up in flames as a result of this.
‘’The price of things will keep increasing. Essential commodities like pepper, palm oil, and gas will keep increasing and these are what the average Nigerian use on a daily basis,”
‘’The government must do something to avert this coming protest, it will involve the youths, old men and women, it will be very serious. The government needs to look into it as soon as possible.’’
