A Catholic Priest, Rev Fr Magnus Ebere a k a Fr E-Dey Work has warned against the use of military force in providing solution to the crisis in Niger Republic.

Fr Magnus Ebere said the use of military action by the ECOWAS forces will lead to devastating consequences in the region particularly in Nigeria.

Fr Ebere stated this at the Canaanland Adoration Counselling Centre, Onicha in Ezinihitte Mbaise Local Government Area of Imo State. He said that past experiences showed that using such military action has never provided the much expected solution to such crises situation.

He maintained that embarking on unnecessary war with the coupists in Niger will worsen the situation. 

The vocal Catholic Priest said the only solution to such a situation is dialogue and not war adding that Nigeria will be the worst for it if military aggression is used.

Fr E-Dey Work called on President Bola Tinubu to face the problems in Nigeria rather than facing that of another country.

He advised the ECOWAS countries to use dialogue and diplomacy to discuss with the Coupists in Niger as the best option.

Fr E-Dey Work called on Tinubu to ameliorate the escalating hunger, terrible depression and untold hardships in Nigeria. He said that the situation is worsening everyday. 

The Spiritual Director of the Canaanland Counselling Centre faulted Tinubu’s hasty removal of Oil Subsidy. He said, he should have first moved in to his office, study the environment, set up his Cabinet and Economic Advisers who will guide and direct him on the best way to handle the situation rather than staying at the swearing in ceremony to embarrass the whole nation. 

According to Fr E-Dey Work, Tinubu wanted to take the credit of Peter Obi’s manifesto because during campaigns, Peter Obi described the fuel subsidy as a scam adding that he will remove it when elected. In order to score cheap popularity not knowing the mind set of Peter Obi, he Tinubu hurriedly removed it without any solution.
