Akinola tasks government on Inflation, as RCC&T Begins convention

Inflation

The Presiding Bishop of Rhema Christian Church & Towers (RCC&T), Taiwo Akinola has called on government to work out mechanisms to absorb the high inflation rate the new minimum wage canvassed by the Nigerian Labour Congress (NLC) would usher in when implemented.

Briefing journalists in preparation for the church’s 2018 World Convention with theme, ‘Walking In Dominion’, which begins today and rounds off on November 11, at the Church’s Headquarter in Temidire Sango Ota, Ogun State, the Bishop enjoined government to be wary of taking decisions that would plunge the economy into a situation where the nation’s currency would be further devalued.

According to the cleric, the bogus allowances and salaries of the ruling class and political office holders should be slashed, stressing that these huge remunerations are some of the reasons many politicians resort to violence and other vices to be elected into public offices.
