Implement people oriented policies, Ojikutu charges politicians

The first female elected Deputy Governor of Lagos State, Alhaja Sinatu Ojikutu, has called on the political class to formulate and implement people centric policies.

Noting that many of the country’s current challenges, such as insecurity and economic downturn, are self-inflicted, Alhaja Ojikutu credited Nigeria’s problem to God’s anger, lawlessness, corruption, and human wickedness to one another, and advised all citizens, regardless of class, ethnicity, or religion, to turn to God sincerely, not physically going to church or mosque, but with a repentant heart.

“If you read the Holy Book and look at what is happening in Nigeria, it shows that God is angry with this country. Everybody must be prayerful because God is angry and giving us a chance to repent, but we are missing that chance every time. God is angry because we (Nigerians) see the truth and we decide to follow falsehood and we are worshipping too many deities that are not for God. There is only one God and we worship Him in many ways. But people are not worshipping God sincerely. We should use our ways, words, deeds and actions to worship God. You cannot worship God and hurt your neighbour. There is no way you will hurt your neighbour and make someone sad and you will expect God to listen to you when you pray. You cannot see God physically, it is through the person you see physically that you will worship God.

“We are wicked to one another. People owe you; they have the money and they refused to pay. The government owes workers; the government has the money and it refused to pay the workers and they say they should not steal. People are using human parts for money rituals to match the status of people who have stolen from the treasury. Our priorities are wrong. We have gone to the dog with our morals. We should turn to God sincerely and ask for forgiveness. People should turn to God for mercy and He will have mercy on Nigeria and give us rulers that will not punish us. God should give us leaders that have our interests at heart.

In an interview with newsmen in Lagos, the former Deputy Governor stated that Nigerian citizens must be sincere in their hearts and deeds, while those in positions of authority should stop passing laws and displaying anti-people behaviors, noting that the unbearable policies of some public office holders are the cause of hardship and criminal activities in the nation as a whole.

Concerning the increase in the price of petrol caused by the suspension of subsidy on fuel, Alhaja Ojikutu stated that this should not be the case because Nigeria is wealthy and her people should not suffer.

“We are not doing things in the way of God. This hike in petrol pump price should not be, we know where the money is. There is enough country money in the hands of a few to rescue this nation. It only needs a courageous patriotic leader to change the narrative. Our commonwealth in the hands of the few can be plowed into the economy to revive it, create jobs, carry out massive reorientation, tackle terrorism with determined security and make agriculture attractive. Everyone should reflect on their actions, look inwards and resolve to make and take God’s fearing choices.”

She encouraged the federal government to be bold in reclaiming the commonwealth from the hands of a few and plowing it back into the economy to revitalize it, create jobs, carry out massive reorientation, combat terrorism with zeal to ensure security, and make agriculture appealing, particularly to the young.
