The Leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele, has warned President Muhammadu Buhari, of an upcoming nationwide protest due to the hike in food prices, which has affected every Nigerian.
According to him, the current economic crisis has led to an increase in prices of essential commodities and unless the government does the needful, it would lead to a serious issue in the country.
In a statement by his media aide, Osho Oluwatosin, the clergyman said that unless the Federal Government provides a solution to the lingering economic crisis, the protest will be severe.
He said, ‘’Nigerians will protest because of the hike in food prices. There will be so much hardship which will cause the government the unexpected. The president must see into food matters otherwise Nigeria will go up in flames as a result of this.
‘’The price of things will keep increasing. Essential commodities like pepper, palm oil, and gas will keep increasing and these are what the average Nigerian uses on a daily basis.
‘’The government must do something to avert this coming protest, it will involve the youths, old men and women, it will be very serious. The government needs to look into it as soon as possible,’’ he added
