The Bishop of Sokoto Catholic Diocese, Mathew Kukah, on Tuesday, in Kaduna, expressed displeasure with the alleged poor management of Nigeria.
The Bishop stated this in his homily at the Good Shepherd Major Seminary, Kaukau, Chikun Local Government Area of Kaduna State before the burial of the seminarian killed by kidnappers in the state.
He lamented that citizens of some countries were willing to risk their lives for their nations but such is not the case in Nigeria.
He alleged that officeholders were loyal to their positions and not the country.
He said, “Nigeria is at a point where we must call for a verdict. There must be something that a man, nay, a nation should be ready to die for.
“Sadly, or even tragically, today, Nigeria, does not possess that set of goals or values for which any sane citizen is prepared to die for her.
“Perhaps, I should correct myself and say that the average officeholder is ready to die to protect his office but not for the nation that has given him or her that office.”
He decried that consistent efforts to build Nigeria had failed, alleging that the President Muhammadu Buhari, remained the only president in the history of the country that had run the “most nepotistic and narcissistic government in known history.”
