Revd Stephen Fagbemi, Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Owo, claimed on Saturday that Nigerians are now poorer and experiencing more hardship.
Before the 2023 elections, candidates, according to the Bishop, should begin their campaigns by visiting hospitals and schools to examine the quality of the nation’s healthcare and educational facilities.
Revd Fagbemi made the remarks at the funeral of Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu’s late mother at Saint Andrew’s Anglican Church.
While emphasizing that God has placed the All Progressives Congress, APC, candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, in a position to make a difference, he advised politicians to campaign at the Federal Medical Centre, FMC, in Owo to learn about the state of the country.
“The poor are getting poorer. Nigeria needs a change that will ensure safety and security in villages. We need a government that understands economics. Life is hard in this country. Let our leaders be careful to help us move things forward. The best place to start campaign is the hospital,” he said.
Meanwhile, Revd Fagbemi asked Governor Akeredolu and his brothers to immortalize their late mother, emphasizing her life of devotion to God and humanity.
