Nigeria’s economic solution beyond palliatives, says Cleric

Dr Cosmas Ilechukwu, Convener, The Change We Need Nigeria Initiative (TCWNNI), says Nigerians do not need palliatives to cushion the effects of fuel subsidy removal, but good governance.

Ilechukwu, who doubles as General Overseer, Charismatic Renewal Ministries (CRM), made the remark Sunday in Abuja at the 14th edition of the TCWNNI Project.

He said though there had been slight changes in the country since the inception of the project, “but not at the level we thought it will occur. But we are undaunted, we remain strong. There is an element of perseverance in prayer.”

“So if you pray today and you didn’t see all the blessings you asked for, you keep praying because we know we are praying to a God who answers prayers. Everything we have ever prayed for will come to pass. That is my faith,” he said.

The cleric, however, kicked against the idea of distribution of palliatives to poor Nigerians following the removal of fuel subsidy by the President Bola Tinubu-led government

“Nigerians don’t need palliatives; what we need is good governance. If things are done well, we don’t need palliatives. Those palliatives who got them? How many poor people did you see that got them?

“If there is good governance, everybody will have enough money to buy rice,” he said.
