Ex-Lagos Deputy Gov Blames Nigeria’s Problems on God’s Anger, Corruption

A former deputy governor of Lagos State, Alhaja Sinatu Ojikutu, has blamed the problems of Nigeria on God’s anger, falsehood, wickedness to one another and corruption.

Ojikutu said God was angry with Nigeria because the nation had decided to follow falsehood, adding, “and we are worshipping too many deities that are not for God.”

The former deputy governor, in a statement made available to journalists in Lagos on Thursday, also stated that Nigerians were wicked towards their neighbours.

“We are wicked to one another,” she said.

“People owe you; they have the money and they refuse to pay. The government owes workers; the government has the money and it refuses 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,” she added.

Ojikutu further said, “The country has been sold,” adding, “What should have been used as a provision for us has been used as a deal.”

She noted that government made laws that had criminalised almost 99 per cent of Nigerians.

“The only solution Nigerians know now is to break laws because the government makes laws that are impossible not to break.

“When things are difficult for people, they will break the law. So, people look for shortcuts in order to survive and in the process, they break the law.

“Think about those that bypass electricity meters or those that forge their certificates. 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,” she said

While condemning the hike in petrol pump price, the ex-deputy governor said there was enough money to rescue the nation’s economy, therefore, there was no need for such a hike.

She said, “This hike in petrol pump price should not be, we know where the money is. There is enough 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 ploughed into the economy to revive it, create jobs, carry out massive reorientation, tackle terrorism with determined security and make agriculture attractive.”
