– A Catholic bishop in Anambra state have called on Nigerian politicians to expect more beating from Nigerians
– Most Reverend Paulinus Ezeokafor urged the politicians to expect a revolution from citizens who are already fed up of bad leadership in the country
The Catholic bishop of Awka diocese, Most Reverend Paulinus Ezeokafor, has called on the federal government and politicians across Nigeria to expect a revolution from Nigerian populace.
The bishop reacting to the recent attack on a former deputy Senate president, Ike Ekweremadu, said politicians to expect revolution, more beatings and manhandling from citizens if nothing is done to address the hardship in the country.
Speaking during his maiden pastoral visit at the St. James Catholic Church, Neni, in Anaocha local government area of Anambra state, Ezeokafor said, politicians must either “sit up” or be ready to face the wrath of hungry and angry Nigerians.

Stating that the beating of bad leaders was long overdue and more should be expected, Ezeokafor said Nigerians are hungry and angry due bad leadership.
Ezeokafor said: “Nigerians are hungry and angry. You cannot beat a child and stop him from crying. People have the right to protest, provided they are not armed.”
“It is done all over the world. Once something is not going on well, you reserve the right to speak up. People have the right to voice out their grievances,” Ezeokafor said.
Noting that Nigerians all over the country are dying daily due to the effects of bad leadership, the cleric said the political class must do all it takes to douse tension among citizens.
“They have right to express displeasure over certain matters. I think what the political class should do to douse the tension is to face governance and lawmaking squarely and work for the common good of the masses. ‘I see more and more greedy politicians being manhandled,” he said.
“Nigerians are dying on daily basis because of bad governance. No good roads, no healthcare, no electricity, cost of living is so high. Yet, these people are busy siphoning our common patrimony,” he added.
Meanwhile, a news platform previously reported that a group of inter-faith clerics and has that God has put enemies of Nigeria to shame.
The clerics during a 40-days prayer session said the blood of those unjustly killed by people that seek personal profits almost ruined Nigeria’s peace and unity.
