The Catholic Archbishop of Abuja, His Eminence John Cardinal Onaiyekan, says government must continue the legal efforts of thoroughly investigating the crimes of the past, transparently and prosecute all accused persons.

Speaking at the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Nigeria, Cardinal Onaiyekan said that religious institutions cannot remain aloof in the ongoing war against corruption and insurgency while a moral spiritual battle is raging.

He lamented the problem of endemic corruption which he said has left a trail of poverty in the country.

Cardinal Onaiyekan also asked government to explore other strategies for fighting terrorism and insurgency in the country.

He was delivering his homily as Catholic bishops from different states of the country came together with Catholic faithful to celebrate mass as part of activities to mark the Catholic Bishops’ Conference.

After the service, the Catholic bishops and parishioners left the church auditorium to the main venue of the Bishops’ Conference proper.

The President of the Catholic Bishops of Nigeria, Archbishop Ignatius Kaigama, was the keynote speaker and he also focused on the war on terrorism.

He said that the war on corruption and terrorism cannot be fought and won by government alone.

Archbishop Kaigama expressed optimism that a new Nigeria is possible with a general reawakening of patriotic consciousness among the people. (Channels TV)
