Primate Elijah Ayodele has said that Nigeria will blow up in six months if nothing is done quickly about the economic hardship in the country.

The man of God stated this while addressing journalists at the finale of his thanksgiving event on Sunday, February 18.

He announced that a state government is set to launch a parlliative market in weeks, adding that the idea was taken from him.

Primate Ayodele held the second edition of his palliative market recently, selling a bag of rice for for as low as N20,000, a huge tuber if yam for N1,000 and a pack of Indomie noodle for as low as N1,500.

The man of God’s warning to the government of Nigeria comes amidst economic hardship in the country with the price of food items skyrocketing.

Recall that there have been protest across Nigeria regarding shortage of food supply and astronomical rise in price of food stuff, leading to President Bola Tinubu ordering the release of 42,000MT of maize, millet and other commodities from the national strategic reserves to address the rising cost of food.

Addressing news men, the Minister of Information and National Orientation, Mohammed Idris, the move is a temporary response to the nation’s growing food crisis and the rising cost of commodities.

Idris said, “The first one is that the Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security has been directed to release about 42,000 metric tons of maize, millet, garri, and other commodities in their strategic reserve so that these items will be made available to Nigerians; 42,000 metric tons immediately.

“The second one is that we have held meetings with the Rice Millers Association of Nigeria. Those who are responsible for producing this rice and we have asked them to open up their stores.”
