Primate Elijah Ayodele, the leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, has said that the nation's economy requires prayer to survive.
According to him, floating of naira by the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, is not the best for the revival of the Nigerian economy, adding that despite the hopes the policy offers, the economy will still not be in good shape.
In a statement signed by his media aide, Osho Oluwatosin, the man of God explained that the floating of the naira was a wrong step by President Bola Tinubu and will further lead to economic troubles as prices of commodities will also skyrocket.
For the ordinary Nigerians, Primate Ayodele made it known that the policy will not have a positive impact on them as the hardship will continue to bite harder as a result of the policy.
He further urged President Tinubu to look inward to tackle the country’s problems, otherwise, Nigerians will continue to suffer.
According to Ayodele:
‘’Nigeria’s economy still needs prayers to survive, the floating of the naira isn’t what the country needs at the moment.
“Even if it offers hope at the moment, it will lead to economic hardship and disappointment for the nation. Nothing will be appreciated, the country needs prayers because we are in economic shambles.
“We will experience a lot of economic setup and the prices of commodities will increase.
‘’The ordinary Nigerians will not benefit from this policy, they will still have to experience a tougher economic conditions. It is not the best idea.
‘’The President took a wrong step with the naira floating; it’s a bad idea and will not have a positive impact on our economy. The government still needs to look inward to make things better otherwise, Nigeria will suffer.’’
