The leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele, has advised President Tinubu to think deeply about the proposed N35,000 addition to wages of Federal Government workers.
He revealed that the increment will lead to more hunger and inflation in the country.
In a statement by his media aide, Oluwatosin Osho, he described it as wrong advice, which was done hastily
He stated that the increment would not achieve its purpose because there would be corruption in its disbursement, and in the end, it wouldn’t help the President and the workers either.
“The N35,000 increment in workers’ wages is an additional hunger. If the government doesn’t look at it well, it will lead to a worse situation.
“I don’t know how the government wants to do it, but it will cause inflation. The government will not be able to do anything because there will be corruption in the distribution. It’s wrong advice,” he said.
The prophet made it known that the government should have requested more time to ensure adequate and lasting plans to salvage the economic situation instead of the increment.
He stated that the cost of living will become higher and that progress will not be made.
“It won’t help the government and will not help the worker. I don’t know how NLC sees it, but it will not help anything, it will add more to the pain. The government should have requested more time to plan it properly. It will lead to a high cost of living.
Prices of things will start going up now, the government should think about it very well. I am not seeing any progress, it will amount to more hardship for our economy,” he said.
