Integration and national unity as the only solution to the conflicts in the northeast, Niger Delta and the clashes between herdsmen and farmers, a cleric of the Catholic Church says.
In his speech at the 2016 Annual General Meeting of the Nigerian Institute of Public Relations in Abuja on Friday, the Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Bishop Matthew Kukah, expressed the belief that national unity would overcome ethnicity and nepotism, which, in his opinion still reign in Nigeria.
He told political leaders to always carry the people along in all that they do.
“The question is; what are the aggregate ingredients? What are kind of tangible realities? What are the things we need to bring together to be able to enhance national integration?
“Now, tragically for us in Nigeria, now more than ever before, we have never been as frustrated, as disunited in almost every sense of the world as we are today and it is not enough to blame the APC. It is not enough to blame Buhari. It is about the fact that somehow something had been creeping in on us and finally has caught up with us.
“Now the question is, can this country still remain united? Yes, it can and it depends on how we understand the concept of unity.
“I often say that one of the difficulties in Nigeria is that the people who are the followers are better equipped, better educated, more intelligent and even more passionate than those who govern them.” (Channels TV)
