[Instagram] Reno Omokri, former aide to immediate past President Goodluck Jonathan, has lamented on the increasing reports of suicide cases in the country, as he said called on wealthy pastors to sell their planes and cater for the needy in their communities.
The aide of the former President said that it was high time pastors shifted focus from miracles and financial breakthroughs to extending love to the broken, abandoned, lonely and unemployed in their communities.
Reno was reacting to series of suicide and attempted suicides by Nigerians recently, noting that never in the history of the country had suicide been widespread.
He cited the cases of the Doctor who jumped into the lagoon and also a business woman who attempted the same, adding that there are several unknown ones.
In a post he shared on his Instagram page, he wrote, “Never in the history of Nigeria has suicide been so widespread.
“There is so much despair in the Land. We need police presence around the Lagoon in Lagos. But my thinking is even if we police the Lagoon, how many suicide go unreported in villages across Nigeria?
“This is not PDP or APC. If doctors and business men and women are being moved to suicide, what about the increasing number of unemployed?
“I call on churches to shift focus from miracles and financial breakthroughs to extending love to the broken, abandoned, lonely and unemployed in their communities.
“Sell your founders private planes and use the money to feed thousands as Jesus fed thousands.”Please Follow Us @ThePageNg
