Buhari is Insensitive to the Sufferings of the Masses – Archbishop Chukwuma

by on June 25, 2016

The Archbishop of Enugu Ecclesiastical Province (Anglican Communion), Most Revd Emmanuel Chukwuma on Friday accused President Muhammadu Buhari of being insensitive to sufferings of the mases.

Chukwuma, who was delivering his address at the sixteenth Synod of Enugu Diocese held at the Church of Resurrection Power, New haven, Enugu, equally declared that Buhari was running a “corrupt administration.”

While condemning the President’s leadership style, he said it was sad that Buhari, who brags about anti corruption, had taken delight in plunging the people he was elected to serve into hardship and suffering through his policies and programmes.

“It is corruption on your part if you increased prices of almost every thing without palliatives to the people.

“There is hunger in the land, the people are complaining and crying and the one elected to serve us is enjoying his life at Aso Rock. That means he is corrupt. He did not increase salary, he did not promote workers.

“The other day, he addressed workers at Aso rock, he did not talk about their welfare but only asked them to shun corruption. How can somebody who is hungry shun corruption? I think there is a limit to what people can take. I advise him to be careful so as to avoid people taking laws into their hands”, he stated.

He maintained that the federal government should reduce interest in the fight against corruption and introduce policies and programmes that would impact on the well being of the people.

Speaking on the increased militancy, terrorism and civil unrests, Chukwuma warned that the situation was bound to increase with the alleged government’s silence to the plight of Nigerians.

He said, “Today, there is no electricity anywhere, shops and businesses are closing by the day due to high prices of goods and services. Petrol is not affordable, like wise kerosene and cooking gas.

“It will appear that there is no leadership. All the promises made by the APC upon which the people voted them in have fallen apart. We cannot continue like this. We need to give the people some measure of hope and show them that government is concerned by the situation of things”.

Calling for restraint in the bombing of oil facilities by the Niger Delta Avengers (NDA), he stated that time had come for justice to prevail in the entire thing by paying adequate attention to the plight of the people of the area.

He said: “Only a leadership that is totally committed to justice and a properly structured Nigeria can solve the identity, resource ownership and other crisis of development in Nigeria.

“While the provision of the infrastructure and sustainable development is important, there can be no enduring peace in the area or any part of Nigeria, for that matter, if injustice to the people of the Niger Delta is not comprehensively addressed. Specifically, a truthful commitment to the principle and practice of federalism is what can bring peace and prosperity to Nigeria.

“It is high time government took a total look at the plight of the people, feel their pains and redress the situation of the long suffering majority who has not been the real beneficiaries of the token tagged Amnesty programme.

“While the programme has made some militant rich, it has not addressed the huge infrastructure challenges and poverty in the area”.

Continuing, Chukwuma said that the renewed militancy and terrorism had further crippled the economy, stressing that immediate, medium and long term solutions should be found to the problems.

    Comment..Actually the situation is no more bearable. There is a problem in his administration although all his supporters don’t want to listen and vow out his leakages. He cannot rule Nigeria alone using old term formula. Let him call out for help I am sure many are waiting to give out their helping hand to move the nation high.

    Can someone tell this so called archbishop to please preach what he knows. If he dosnt know what to preach from the biblle he should leave politics and the president alone. If he cannot tell his congregants that corruption is the source of the current suffering in Nigeria now, it means he is misleading people. It shows he delighted in the looting of the nation’s treasure by Jonathan and his gang of thieves. I wonder why christians dont see corruption as sin.
    The bishop is crying now because the tap of corruption is finally being turned off. I leave in South Africa, l have never read of this type of thievry being reported in Nigeria.
    All well meaning Nigerians should support the president to bring sanity to country. The pain of the moment is temporary. We have to go through it for the good of tommorow.

    It’s only demonic souls that support how buhari is punishing the masses. Buharis children are abroad schooling. His son is busy flying first class ticket with airlines. His wife is indicted in Halliburton bribery scandal, etc. He’s busy witchhunting oppositon or anybody who speaks against how he’s ruining Nigeria, enriching himself and promoting corruption. Where is the money he said he recorvered? How much is it? Corruption can’t fight corruption.
    Now he’s after governor Fayose with EFCC because that one has been bold to advice him to run Nigeria as a democrat and fulfil the promises he (buhari) made to Nigerians.
    I trust God to fight for the masses against this APC govt that came on board as enemy of Nigerian masses. They lied to Nigerian masses who trusted and voted them into power. There is God, Buhari and APC!
