President Bola Tinubu was forewarned on Thursday by Primate Elijah Ayodele of the INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church not to pay attention to Vice President Kashim Shettima and Senate President Godswill Akpabio’s statement characterising the current rallies against hardship as sponsored.

He told Tinubu that Shettima and Akapbio were lying to him because they knew that Nigerians were suffering, so they decided to take to the streets to voice their complaints.

Ayodele chastised the two in a statement issued through his spokesperson, Oluwatosin Osho, for being indifferent to Nigerians’ emotions and treating their complaints as merely political discussions at a time when the government is meant to be providing for the needs of its people.

He said: ‘’The country needs urgent action otherwise Nigeria will continue to experience difficulty. Tinubu should not mind those who are deceiving him, people are in pain and no one is sponsoring any protest.

“People are angry and feeling the heat of the economy. Tinubu should ignore any side talks that are not relevant to what is happening at this moment, everything is upside down.

‘’Tinubu should act before it’s too late. Akpabio’s statement about the protest isn’t a wise talk; it’s simply insensitive. Shetimma and Akpabio saying protests are sponsored is out of character.

“Nobody is sponsoring anything, the people are just hungry and these are what God said will happen in your government. Nigeria doesn’t deserve such irrelevant statements now. Instead of blaming people, your government should get to work.”
