President and founder, Vision Africa International, Bishop Sunday Ndukwo Onuoha, has called on government at all levels to come up with life-changing policies and programmes to lift people out of hunger, hardship and starvation.
He said this has become necessary because the faces of Nigerians are scary due to hardship they face.
In a statement entitled, “Listen to the Cries of the Poor Now to Avert Anarchy” released on Sunday, Bishop Onuoha urged government to go beyong rhetorics and work hard to reposition the economy to give succor to dying masses.
He said that it was not an exaggeration that the masses are hungry as the look on their faces suggests that they are in dire need of help.
