September 6, 2016, 2:16 pm

Forum of Northern States ‎Pentecostal Bishops, on Tuesday, told President Muhammadu Buhari to seek experts advice on how to lift the nation's economy out of recession.

Chairman  of the nineteen  Northern States Pentecostal Bishops Forum, Archbishop John Praise Daniel, who spoke with State House Correspondents  after a closed-door meeting with the Vice President Yemi Osinbajo at the State House, said there was suffering in the land.

He called on those leading the country not to "be afraid to look for economic experts, they should not stop to get who can help to provide 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 of and talked about."

‎He said members of the forum  came to pay a courtesy call on the vice president. 

"We came to congratulate him and thank the government for the efforts so far since they came in about a year ago especially in stamping out the Boko Haram menace and in ensuring security all over the nation," he said,

Daniel revealed that they also discussed with Osinbajo  the need for the nation to work together in unity, to move on in peace. 

He said that the threat posed by  the Fulani herdsmen was also discussed with the vice president.

He  said the forum also offered advice and called on government to make sure‎  that everything was done to foster unity, peace and progress. 

"We are a united nation and nobody should be thinking individually but collectively of making Nigeria great. And also let the government know ‎that yes we have agreed we are in recession, the people down there whom we led are suffering, there are cries all over the place and let the government know that whatever they can do to alleviate the sufferings.

"We thank God that the president promised he would look at the hunger Nigerians are going through ‎and we do believe that because the president is a man of integrity, he will follow up with his words to ensure that the suffering of Nigerian masses is reduced and make sure that there is enough in the country if we have all the infrastructure working, things working. 

"Agreed, we are suffering from the effect of past misrule of past leadership. All the same we believe Nigeria is a great nation, and we can work together with our genuineness, our commitment and our intellectual intelligence to move this nation forward," he submitted.
