Hunger, hardship cause of rampant divorce cases in Nigeria – Clerics

Hunger and general hardship faced by Nigerians over the years has been responsible for rampant divorce cases and broken homes in the country.

Serving Overseeing Pastor of  Great House Assembly Ministries,  Pastor Jushua Jeremiah, stated this in Minna on Monday while addressing women convention organised by Vessels of Gold. 

According to him, “Many homes are crumbling due to hardship in the land. Some families can no longer afford meals at home. This is actually responsible for rampant cases of divorce and broken homes in the country.  Government need to consider the plight of the people and come out with permanent solution to the problem.”

The Cleric who spoke on the theme: “Building a functional home to impact positively on our society, ” described  a functional home as very important to the development of the society. 

Pastor Jeremiah said the major problems children face mostly originated from lack of cordial relationship between their parents, adding that only functional homes can curb societal ills and bring about peace and development. 

On the issue of restive youths and miscreants in the society,  the Cleric called on government to provide them hope , explaining that when they have meaningful livelihood,  they will turn away from these I’ll activities. 

Speaking earlier, the convener of the Women Convention, Pastor Bisi Jeremiah, urged women to be contented with what the family can afford without putting unnecessary pressure on their husbands.
