NINETEEN Northern States Pentecostal Forum has advised President Muhammadu Buhari not to be afraid to get experts in economic matters to help his government to pull the country out of its present downturn.
After a closed door meeting with Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Tuesday, chairman of the forum, Archbishop John Praise Daniel, told State House correspondents that they had come to offer advice to the government on the way to foster peace, unity and progress.
He said the forum congratulated the government for its successes against Boko Haram and also stressed the need for the nation to work together as one.
“We believe Nigeria is a great nation and we can foster together with our greatness, our commitment and our intellectual intelligence to move this nation forward.
“The government should not be afraid to look for economic experts. They should not stop to get who can help to help in our economic recovery to ensure everything goes on well, so that this country can bounce back as a great nation that we have always been, to ensure this country becomes that great nation we have always dreamt and talked about,’ he said.
Arguing for unity for the country and noting that the country was in a bad shape due to past misrule, Archbishop Daniel said “we are a united nation and nobody should be thinking individually of making Nigeria great.”
