The Anglican Bishop of Oo, Revd Stephen Fagbemi, said on Saturday that Nigerians are now poorer and experiencing greater hardship.
According to Bishop, politicians should start their campaign by visiting hospitals and schools before the 2023 elections so that they can assess the state of the country’s healthcare and education infrastructure.
This was stated by Revd Fagbemi during the funeral service of the late mother of Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu at Saint Andrew’s Anglican Church.
While stressing that God has placed All Progressives Congress candidate, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to make a difference, he urged politicians to visit the Federal Medical Centre, FMC, in Ao for a campaign to learn about the state of the country.
“The poor are getting poorer. Nigeria needs a change that ensures safety and security in the villages. We need a government that understands the economy. Life is tough in this country. Let our leaders be eager to help us move things forward. The best place to start the campaign is the hospital,” he said.
Meanwhile, Reved Vajbemi urged Governor Akridolo and his siblings to memorialize their late mother, assuring that she is living a life of service to God and humanity.
