Bishop Ezeokafor Charges Nigerians to be patient with President Buhari over appointment

 The Catholic Bishop of Awka Diocese, Most Rev. Dr. Paulinus Ezeokafor has urged Nigerians not to be too hasty in judging President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration, because according to him, having tried thrice to rule the country through democratic means before, he must have something for all Nigerians.

Bishop Ezeokafor, who recently spoke to newsmen at the Cathedral, explained that although President Buhari may not have spread his appointments so far, he was optimistic that the new administration will give everybody a sense of belonging.

He said: “It is too early to judge Buhari. We should allow the present government some time. Any one who wants this government to move forward should give it time. All Nigerians should support the President in his fight against corruption because if corruption is conquered, Nigeria will be best place to live. The country is blessed with abundance human and natural resources”.

The Prelate, however, warned Buhari to be cautious of opposition, because according to him, those who are fighting with him may at a point turn against him but as long as he continues tackling corruption menace, the lingering ethnicity problem which many blamed as one of the banes of the country will take a back seat.

Speaking on insecurity in the country, Bishop Ezeokafor, while describing it as an international hurdle, acknowledged that much efforts have been made to that effect, and urged the government to continue as winning the war against insurgency shall amounts to a better Nigeria.

He however stressed that the biggest worry in Nigeria is the issue of power supply and urged the government to do everything possible to tackle it even if it entails cutting down on other sectors of the economy.
