Where as the head of Anglican Church globally,Archbishop of Canterbury,Justin Welby, continues to applaud President Muhammudu Buhari’s leadership skill, the Archbishop, Enugu Ecclesiastical Province (Anglican Communion), Most Rev. Emmanuel Chukwuma, has said that re-electing President Muhammadu Buhari in 2019 would perpetuate suffering and evil in the country.
The fiery Anglican Archbishop spoke to mediamen on wednesday in Enugu shortly after a service of songs in honour of the late Rev. Canon Chris Nwezi, held at St. John’s Anglican Church, Idaw River,
Archbishop Chukwuma, maintained his call on Buhari to quit at the expiration of his tenure in 2019,while calling on those positioning the contunity of the incumbent president to rethink on the decision in the interest of the nation.
He restated that Buhari’s acceptance to re-contest the position in 2019 might lead to his “disastrous end”, insisting that president Buhari’s tenure, “ has brought more tears and weeping on the people.”
Hear him: “I want to let you know that President Buhari declaring or not declaring is not anything to be feared. It is not anything that is new. Rather, he should know that it will lead to his disastrous end should he dare to re-contest. I have told him, he should go and rest.
“He has expired. All those yearning for him to continue are the people benefiting from him. He has not done anything to warrant his coming back to office. The way things are, we need a new wine in a new wine skin. I am against people who are coming out to perpetuate sufferings of the people and Buhari has shown that he cannot solve our problems. We need good governance. It does not matter the party you belong. All the people yearning to become president have all expired. They have no new thing to offer and we cannot continue to perpetuate failure and evil.”said ArchBishop Chukwuma
Chukwuma went on calling Nigerians to persevere in prayer for the Lord to intervene in the nation’s leadership and also, remove persons whose involvement have brought hardship and crises.He asked the federal government to not only release looters list but show readiness in prosecuting them.
Meanwhile the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby was seen yesterday interfacing with the President in London at the Nigeria House.
