Cleric tasks FG on cost of governance

The planter of Christ Apostolic Church (CAC) Boanerges Worldwide, Prophet Joseph Ade Ologbonyo, has stated the need for a change in the Governing System in Nigeria.

The cleric posited that the calls became necessary to pave way for the realisation of Nigerian yearnings and aspiration for growth and development.

Prophet Ologbonyo who made the call Monday while speaking with journalists in Orun-Ekiti in Ise/Orun local government are, Ekiti state ahead of the commemoration of the 15th Anniversary of his church said: “I’m one of the people that believe that the system that we are running, the system we inherited from the military regime would not work for this country, no matter who becomes the president.”

The cleric warned that nobody should be allowed to influence the system, saying if things work well in country today Nigerians in diaspora would come back home.

However, the religious leader also admonished the federal government to ensure a cut in the cost of governance in the cause of administering the country.

“If you really love this country, you should be able to pay prices. The President, the Senators and members of House of Representatives should be ready to pay the price. To me, it is cheating. We could see huge amount being paid to the National Assembly members. Furniture allowances and SUV vehicles given to each of them that gulped huge amount.

“Don’t forget that some of these set of people are former governors and they are collecting pensions. So much money is going to them. My advice to President Bola Tinubu is that there should be a cut in the cost of governance,” he said.

Speaking on the one year anniversary of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the cleric said he believed that one year was too early to do assessment on whether he has performed well or not.
