The 2023 vice presidential candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), Bishop Isaac Idahosa, on Tuesday, August 28 applauded the Bola Tinubu-led administration for the right policies which he believes will be painful but productive later.

Idahosa made the comment when he appeared 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 actualization 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.”
