FG policies: After the pains, the gains will come – NNPP’s Idahosa

THE 2023 vice presidential candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), Bishop Isaac Idahosa, has today lauded President Bola Tinubu’s administration for implementing the “right” policies, which he believes will be painful before the benefits start to materialize.

Idahosa, whose party finished fourth in the February 25 presidential election, spoke on the policies of the All Progressives Congress (APC) government on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily.

While acknowledging that things are “getting much harder” for the Nigerian masses, he argued that it was “not without us stepping into the matter to say, ‘Things will be better.’”

He added, “We keep anchoring their lives on hope: ‘Things will be better.’ The more we preach the hope message, the more things get bad for them.”

For the cleric-turned-politician, however, the actualisation of the people’s hope is a “process”.

“The government has taken, definitely, very true, right policies and it’s going to bite,” he explained.

“After the bite, after the pains, then the gains will come. But not too many people are patient enough watching the gains come.”
