The Anglican Bishop of Minna Diocese, Rt. Revd. Daniel Yisa, has alleged that the only change the President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration has succeeded in bringing is changing criminals to saints when they cross over to the ruling party.
According to the clergyman, three years on, Nigerians are yet to experience the much-promised Change from the Buhari administration.
In a sermon on the occasion of Easter celebration in Minna on Sunday, Bishop Yisa said: “If the six people mentioned (in first looters’ list) are the thieves, what happened to the rest, especially those that crossed over to the ruling party?” he queried.
“If you are a leader, you should be a leader in words, thoughts and actions.
“When we have a government that is supposed to transform the lives of the people and it’s not doing so, then you know that not every government that preaches change is sincere. Under the government, politics has become business.
“Jesus left a legacy for us, He redeemed us, that is why we are celebrating.
“What are we going to celebrate at the end of the tenure of this government? Those that have the capacity to speak out, have been silenced one way or the other.”
“The kind of sacrifice I expect from this government is for them to drive on our roads rather than fly. Let them sacrifice by driving on roads like Mokwa to Jebba bridge and see what the common man is passing through.
“I wish there are no chartered flights for these people to travel with so that they can ply our roads. If they are sacrificing, let them drive on our roads,” Bishop Yisa said.
