The leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele, has implored President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to find drastic and lasting solutions to the economic hardship that plagues the country.
He said Nigerians will shut down the country if the widespread suffering lingers in the next three months.
He explained that individuals will not wait for the Nigerian Labour Congress, NLC, or any organization to lead protests “anymore rather, they will storm the streets in their numbers to cry out against the government.”
In a statement by his media aide, Oluwatosin Osho, Ayodele said the situation of the country would be best described as a ‘standstill’ if the president fails to find a lasting solution to the economic hardship being faced by citizens of the country.
He urged the president not to see his message as a threat but as divine instructions to save the country from impending danger.
According to Ayodele: ‘’In the next three months, if the economic hardship doesn’t end, Nigerians will bring the country to a total shutdown with massive demonstrations and disorderliness.
“This won’t be the usual protest that NLC or TUC organize, Individuals will storm the streets to personally protest and this will make the country standstill for days.
‘’President Tinubu should do everything possible to fix the economy, He needs to adjust and do all that is needful because the economic hardship will wreck the country and this will affect both the rich and the poor. Individuals will begin to protest, workers will shun their working place.
‘’If there is no adjustment, economic hardship will shut down Nigeria in three months and this is not a threat. The president should consider this as divine instruction because what I see is not palatable.’’
