Bishop lamented over rising hopelessness, poverty of Nigerian child

The National Publicity Secretary of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN) Bishop Emmah Gospel Isong, has expressed concern over the rising hopelessness of Nigerian baby.

Speaking on the Faith Mansion World Centre (City of Testimonies), Calabar, throughout the sixth Emmah Isong Public Lecture as a part of actions to mark his 55th birthday, he mentioned it was unimaginable that the APC-led authorities has not been capable of take Nigeria out of the woods even when the citizens had excessive hopes.

He mentioned it was excessive time Nigerian federation was restructured to replicate the present realities and provides each section a way of belonging, sustaining that the current structural imbalance had given room for mutual suspicion and injustice suffered by the federation states.

“My only sadness at 55 is to see Nigeria the way it is, the future of our children is not guaranteed and our people are poor and wretched. Students are dropping out of school every day. My sadness is not for myself but due to the way I see Nigerians poorer and poorer everyday while two or three people are getting richer and richer and sharing oil blocks, I cry. I will only say I am happy at 55 if I am selfish. But I am sad because our country is not living up to expectations and I am really worried. There must be a bloodless solution, solution without war to reverse the trend.”
