The Leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elijah Ayodele, has asked President Muhammadu Buhari to stop inflation and tackle the current hike in prices of food items in Nigeria.

According to the cleric, the inflation that has hit food prices will lead to a massive protest involving old and young Nigerians.

Ayodele said this in a statement on Friday, made available by his media aide, Osho Oluwatoyin.

 He said, “Nigerians will protest because of the hike in food prices. There will be so much hardship which will cause the government the unexpected. The president must see into food matters otherwise Nigeria will go up in flames as a result of this.

“The price of things will keep increasing. Essential commodities like pepper, palm oil, and gas will keep increasing and these are what the average Nigerian use on a daily basis.

“The government must do something to avert this coming protest, it will involve the youths, old men and women; it will be very serious. The government needs to look into it as soon as possible.”
