Buhari's economic policies has pushed Nigerians into poverty — Okowa laments

Governor Ifeanyi Okowa of Delta State, has acknowledged failure of the Buhari administration in the management of the nation's economy, saying many families in the country are languishing in abject poverty as they struggle to eat on daily basis.

Okowa who disclosed this at the Cathedral Church of St. Faith, Awka, Anambra State during the Eucharistic thanksgiving service to mark the 60th birthday of the Archbishop of the Province of the Niger and Bishop of Awka Diocese, Alexander Ibezim, however, said the current challenges facing the country is not beyond God's power. 

He therefore, called on the Church to pray for God's direction so that the country can have the right leadership.

“There is no doubt that in our nation, Nigeria as it is today, it is not easy to shepherd the people because the times are difficult, families are finding it difficult to eat.

“And in such a time as this, all I do whenever I find myself with church leaders is to urge them to continue to pray because the prayers of the righteous do much more than the people think it does.

“We are politicians, but we also belong to the church of God that I do know that the more our people pray rather than despair, the more likely this nation will have a turnaround because there is nothing the Lord God cannot do.

“And we must rely more on God and allow Him to give us a leading in this nation. We do not need to make mistakes. Mistakes have been made in the past. May the Lord, through the mouths and the voices of our leaders in the church, truly guide us aright; that we may know what is best for this country. And may the will of God be done,” Okowa said.
