The Bishop of Ijumu Anglican Diocese, Bishop Ezekiel Ikupolati has prevailed on President Muhammadu Buhari to quickly settle down for work and stop giving excuses in addressing the problems of the nation which made Nigerians to vote for him. Bishop Ikupolati who was speaking during this week Sunday service said President Buhari was elected to tackle the problem of the country and not to give excuses, “President Buhari should settle down for work rather than talking of an empty treasury.
There is no right thinking Nigeria that will accept that assertion. He was elected to tackle problem not to point them out to the people.” Ikupolati who also spoke on other national issues take a swipe on the APC leadership, the Amnesty International and governor Rauf Aregbesola of Osun State.
He urged the leadership of All Progressive Congress, APC, to steer clear of the National Assembly or risk bringing disaster to the country, “APC leadership should leave the National Assembly chambers alone to appoint their leaders and carry out their activities in accordance to the constitution of Nigeria.”
On Amnesty International he said, “It is uncivil for the Amnesty International to create distraction on the conducts of the Nigeria Army in the Northeast axis. Why are they not addressing the menace of Boko Haram”.
Ikupolati also supported Justice Olamide Oloyede call for Osun State Governor, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola to resign, “I see her action as that of a typical but rare Nigerian. She should not be gagged, stampeded or silence”.
