Primate Ayodele, the leader of INRI Evangelical Church, has urged President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to change his approach towards economic hardship as he still foresees more economic challenges for Nigeria.

In a statement signed by Osho Oluwatosin, his media aide, Ayodele lauded President Tinubu for his intervention in the Naira devaluation issue but maintained that the government hasn’t done the right thing to tackle economic hardship in the country.

He said things are still going to be expensive and there will still be more inflation unless the government improves agriculture and ensures Nigeria produces and refines petroleum products in the country.

“I want to commend the federal government for the improvement experienced in the value of our Naira. The government has done tremendously well and indeed, deserves to be appreciated. The act saved Nigeria from a huge crisis.

“However, things are still going to be very expensive, there will still be more inflation in the country. The best thing the government can do is to look for ways we can produce and refine our oil here to improve the economy and improve agriculture.

“There are some hidden things Nigerians don’t know. Economic hardship is still fully around in the country. I said that there will be an increase in electricity tariffs, Nigerians will still cry out about the issue of electricity.”

The cleric said the government has more to do because the poor will still be struggling while calling on the federal government to create another economic formula. He also said the perceived economic improvement will only be a façade unless the government tackles it the right way instead of cutting corners.

He further said if the federal government doesn’t do the right thing about Nigeria’s economy, more problems will be created while trying to solve the present one.

“Economic hardship is still lurking around; there is more for the government to do. The masses will still be struggling and there will still be an increase in tariffs in the telecommunication sector. The economic situation will affect banks and the stock exchange.

“The president should change the strategy of approaching the economic problems; another formula that will help the country should be created. The economy is still shaking and what Nigerians see now as improvement will be a façade if the government doesn’t tackle it the right way or else, we will buy pure water sachet for N100, Coke for N800, a tuber of yam for N2000, Local rice for N50000, a stick of corn for N500. More states will still face salaries issues, the government will be looking for so many ways to recover the economy but it should be done the right way if not, we will only create another problem while trying to solve one.’’
