The Parish Priest of Saint Michael Catholic Church, Okpanam, Rev. Fr Malachi Okonkwo has decried the constant rise in the prices of dollars against the naira and the price of rice.
Fr. Okonkwo said this today while delivering his homily to his congregation in Okpanam.
According to him, in 2015, the price of dollar to the naira was N350 while a bag of rice was N14000 but now N890 and N44,000 respectively.
He called on all to speak up against the present situation as posterity would not forgive this generation if they fail and challenged all to speak the truth at all times to make this nation a better place.
”I am calling on you all today to use your different position in government to speak truth to the present administration to make life better.
”When we are faced with difficult situations, we should think of what God says to act instead of considering our own interest even when it goes contrary to what God instructs,” he remarked.
He urged all to bear in mind that death would surely come but if one died in Christ there was hope of resurrection unlike those that died without knowing Christ.
