Nigeria's economy had slipped into recession in the second quarter of 2016 and since then, everything has changed.

The minimum wage is 18,000 Naira and that is just a little above a bag of rice or garri, two most consumed staple foods in Nigeria.

Nigerians depend so much on foreign goods, as poor power situation in the nation had forced companies to leave the nation.

The prices of goods have soared and many Nigerians have at one time or the other complained of how hard things have become.

Miracles Will Happen

But a Catholic Priest, Reverend Father Kale Francis, believes that if Nigerians would cultivate the habit of praying rather than complaining they will overcome the current economic hardship.

Francis, the Parish Priest at St. Peter and Paul Catholic Church, Nyanya in the Federal Capital Territory made the call in his homily at a Mass on Sunday.

“The time we use for complaining, if we use it for prayers, I believe miracles will happen in Nigeria.

“We must always remember to pray for peace to reign in the country.

“As children of God, we need to be constant in prayers,” he said.

According to him, if Nigerians believe in peace, they can work towards achieving it.

Francis said Nigerians should learn how to always thank God for His mercies as the country look forward to becoming a peaceful nation.

 “We should always allow God to carry us along and when we believe in Him, our happiness is assured,” the News Agency of Nigeria quoted him as saying.
