Christian Group: Tinubu Inflicting Nigerians With More Suffering Like Buhari

President Bola Tinubu has come under heavy attacks by some Christian clerics over his administration’s decision to remove fuel subsidy.

Clerics, on the platform of The National Prayer Altar, likened the Tinubu’s fuel subsidy removal to the biblical story of King Rehoboam’s lack of empathy for the people.

Politics Nigeria reports that the group disclosed this in a statement jointly signed by Pastor Bosun Emmanuel and Prof. Kontein Trinya on Sunday.

Going further, the group expressed their disapproval of the timing for certain policies of ruling the All Progressives Congress (APC).

“The recent announcement by the APC on the removal of petroleum subsidy without appropriate remediation for the plight of the masses reminds one of the story of King Rehoboam in the Bible,” the statement read.

“By its austere ‘welcome greeting,’ the APC appears to have affirmed that it is set to afflict Nigerians with more suffering than they had endured under Buhari.”

Members of the group also alleged manipulation of ethnic sentiments for political gain, particularly during the 2023 elections.

“The 2023 elections have been ranked as the worst in the history of Nigeria. It is imperative that INEC be interrogated about its handling of the 2023 elections. Those who rig elections can neither claim to have been ordained by God nor to mean well for the people.”
