 The Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Matthew Kukah, has
stated that Nigeria is reaping what it sowed yesterday.

 

Addressing the nation’s challenges, Bishop Kukah, in his
Easter message made available to newsmen, called upon the Federal Government to
devise a robust strategy to reverse the country’s course and lead it towards national
healing.

 

“Our leaders chose the feast rather than the fast. We are
today reaping what we sowed yesterday. For over 60 years, our leaders have
looked like men in a drunken stupor, staggering, stumbling, and fumbling,”
Kukah expressed.

He underscored pervasive corruption and its debilitating
effects on the nation, describing Nigeria as being in a state of hangover that
renders it comatose.

 

Nevertheless, the bishop remained optimistic about Nigeria’s
potential for greatness, urging citizens to journey together towards a new dawn
of resurrection.

“The corruption of the years of a life of immoral and sordid
debauchery has spread like cancer, destroying all our vital organs. The result
is a state of hangover that has left our nation comatose.

 

“Notwithstanding, Easter is a time to further reflect on the
road not taken. It is a time to see if this Golgotha of pain can lead us to the
new dawn of the resurrection. Nigeria can and Nigeria will be great again. Let
us ride this tide together in hope,” he stated.

foster patriotism.

 

He called for transparent recruitment methods and a clear
communications strategy to inspire accountability and achieve national goals.

 

He said: “The government must design a more comprehensive
and wide-ranging method of recruitment that is transparent as a means of
generating patriotism and reversing the ugly face of feudalism and prebendalism

“There is a need for a clear communications strategy that
will serve to inspire and create timelines of expectations of results from
policies.

 

“There is a need for clarity over questions of who, what,
when, and how national set goals are to be attained and who can be held
accountable.”
