Nigerians have been encouraged to show understanding of what President Muhammadu Buhari and individuals from his administration are doing on his battle against corruption, uprising, and his offer to put the economy back on track.
Previous President of Catholic Brothers United, Mr. Vincent George Uba, a businessperson situated in Lagos, expressed sadness over the repeating of bribery and corruption in the nation throughout the years, which, as indicated by him, led to the current monetary chaos in the nation. He likewise communicated doubt at the way numerous Nigerians are rebuking the president for the country’s financial troubles.
According to Uba, “For so many years, Nigeria has been bedeviled by bribery and corruption. A country blessed with human, mineral and natural resources, cannot boast of meaningful progressive development and durable infrastructure as a result of mismanagement occasioned by bribery and corruption. The economy as a result has become worse off.
“This worrying state of affairs once prompted the Catholic Bishops conference of Nigeria to compose a special prayer called ‘Prayer against bribery and corruption’ and later ‘Prayer for Nigeria in distress’, which were said in almost every Mass celebrated in the Catholic Church in Nigeria. Like the Catholic Church, other religious bodies have been praying and yearning for a country free from bribery and corruption.”
Uba, who followed the rise of Buhari as the President of Nigeria in May 29, 2015, reviewed his crusade, which was prefaced on three cardinal issues – battle against debasement, battling the revolt and recovery of the Nigerian economy. He hailed the president’s endeavors on the three issues up until this point, and begged Nigerians to permit him an opportunity to actualise these promises.
