On Failed Campaign Promises: Bishop Ighele Asks Buhari To Do This Before Nigerians Or…


There is a very serious need for President Buhari to apologise to every Nigerian for taken them for granted by canceling all the campaign promises he made before the election which he eventually won and installed as the president of the country.

Bishop Charles Ighele says that the APC government must find a way to solve Nigeria’s problem – The religious cleric advised President Buhari to man up and apologise to Nigerians

He noted that the price of food was high throwing Nigerians into despair Bishop Charles Ighele has said that President Muhammadu Buhari needs to apologise to Nigerians over his failed campaign promises.

In an interview with Vanguard, the general superintendent of Holy Spirit Mission Church said it was evident that the All Progressives Congress would not be able to fulfil the promises made during campaign and therefore owe Nigerians apology.

He said: “Things have gotten so bad. Nigerians have never suffered like this. It has never been so in terms of economic hardship. Landlords are on the neck of their tenants who probably do not have money and these landlords need the money to take care of their families.

A vicious level of poverty is being unleashed and I find it very dangerous when it is being unleashed on a nation and on families. It is only those people who are so wealthy that do not feel it. “The prices of food items have gone high within such a short time, and people now find it difficult to cope. The president knows that things are not good which is why he has been appealing for calm.”

“If this government can get this right and get their best brains together even if they are not in APC, we will be close to ending this economic recession. Now let us forget about campaign promises and apologise to Nigerians that these promises cannot work for various reasons, and that this is the reality and this is what we can do.

I am surprised they do not want to be honest. “I am equally surprised that they are unable to harness brains. I wonder why this ruling party keeps going about their campaign promises and, each time they promise to deliver on the promises, things get worse.

An honest man should be able to apologise and say what can work, lay a new foundation and tell us it is achievable. People should be bold enough to tell the president. Some states have been able do this because we have radical people who can think to get things right.” Bishop Ighele also condemned the arrest of judges by operatives of the Department of State Services and described the operation as a shame to the judiciary.

“It is wrong to go to peoples homes in the middle of the night searching for evidence. But if they have evidence that at that time there might be things that would implicate the judges, then they can apply for search warrant and do it in a manner that will not generate controversy instead of the way they ended up going about it.

Nigerian lawyers and judges have to put their acts together and remove the bad eggs among them. “In our efforts to bring glory to the politicians and political parties we support, we should be careful not to remove the little glory Nigeria presently has among civilized people and nations.

That some lawyers support the operation of the DSS is shocking to many people I know. The DSS should re-strategise on how to carry out sting operations that will remove them from controversy such as this so that they (DSS)can be well respected.”
