Anglican Church Diocese of Enugu, at the weekend, said it was in support of the nationwide industrial action planned by the Nigeria Labour Congress (NLC), adding that Nigerians have had hard times over the past eight years of the administration of former President Olusegun Obasanjo.
Speaking to newsmen in Enugu, Bishop of the Church, Rt. Reverend Emmanuel Chukwuma, said labour needs the support of Nigerians in the planned strike, explaining that this was the only way to be part of the condemnation of the bad policies of Obasanjo’s administration.
Chukwuman said protesting against bad policies was the only way to ensure that such policies do not continue, adding that “as far as I am concerned, Obasanjo’s administration made many bad policies in the past eight years. Time is coming when Nigerians will resist evil policies of our leaders. Whatever the NLC wants to do, the Anglican Church will support it as a Church to reduce the sufferings of our people. We cannot continue to suffer like this. Time has come for us to heave a sigh of relief. It is human to cry out.”
