Archbishop Martins @58, berates Buhari-led FG on unfulfilled electoral promises

The Archbishop of Lagos, His Grace Most Rev. Dr. Alfred Adewale-Martins has berated the President Muhammadu Buhari-led Federal Government over unfulfilled electoral promises made to Nigerians, reports ITRealms.

In his State-of-Nation address to mark his 58th birthday anniversary, Archbishop Martins noted that two years was enough period for any serious government to get its bearing right, saying that the masses expected the present administration to proffer solutions to the country’s challenges, hence they voted them into office.

He scored the Buhari-led Federal Government low in terms of performance, despite the enormous challenges they had to contend with. He however believed that the country’s challenges were not insurmountable where there was political will, purposeful leadership and determination will excel. 

According to him, Nigerians are weary of empty promises, and still suffering despite several electoral promises because the country’s leaders have been applying the same old and ineffective drugs for cancerous growths that required surgery.

Archbishop Martins, while affirming that a buoyant economy is key to the survival of the nation, equally tasked government not to foreclose dialogue with Biafra agitators, warning that except issues of marginalization and lopsided appointments are decisively addressed, such agitations would continue to grow by the day.

On the health condition President Buhari, Archbishop Martins prayed God to heal him permanently so that he can resume work and lead the nation towards the path of recovery, affirming his confidence in the competence and genuine intent of the President to move the nation forward.

ITRealms also reports that birthday gifts were later presented to the Archbishop Martins by several groups including the Knights and Ladies of St Mulumba who organized the reception held his honour.


Earlier, during a well-attended Thanksgiving Mass at the Cathedral, the out-going Secretary of the Archbishop, Fr. Anthony Nwosu showered encomiums on the person of the celebrant, describing him as a silent achiever who has performed excellently well since assuming office as the Metropolitan of the Archdiocese.
