Mrs Folorunsho Alakija has described the current economic downturn as the price that Nigerians need to pay to get the desired change.
She said this, last week, at the 2016 Excellence in Leadership Conference organised by Daystar Christian Centre.
She said it takes time for change to take place adding that Nigerians are not exercising enough patience with the present administration and are expecting it to perform magic.
Alakija said apart from Nigerians looking unto God for help, they should also go back to the basics because the nation has done things outside the way of God and everyone is paying the price.
“Everyone has to pay the price because it is a learning process of the ills that have taken place in the country, we have been too docile as a people, we allow people to get away with a lot of evils that they are doing, they should pay the price for what they have done, everyone is bearing the brunt now, we need to learn from our past mistakes. Some of the things we are doing wrong are not cutting our coat according to our sizes,” she said.
