Idahosa Says Gains Will Come After Pains

Bishop Isaac Idahosa, a cleric-turned-politician, has lauded President Bola Tinubu-led administration, noting that though the policies put in place at the moment may be tough, things will get better.

He made the statement during his appearance on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily on Tuesday. The NNPP member was sharing his insights on the All Progressives Congress (APC) government’s policies.

 The former vice presidential candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), noted that Tinubu has made the “right” policies, which he believes will be painful before the gains are seen.

However, he stressed that it “would not be without us stepping into the matter to say, ‘Things will be better,'” even if he acknowledged that life is “getting much harder” for the majority of Nigerians.

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.”

Idahosa added that the actualisation 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.”
