Nigeria Not Worth Dying for – Bishop Kukah

Published

on

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 have failed, alleging that the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.), remained the only president in the history of the country that had run the “most nepotistic and narcissistic government in known history.” “The Yorubas say that if it takes you 25 years to practice madness, how much time would you have to put it into real life? We have practiced madness for too long. “Our attempt to build a nation has become like the agony of Sisyphus who angered the gods and had to endure the frustration of rolling a stone up the mountain. Each time he got near the top, the gods would tip the stone back and he would go back to start all over again. What has befallen our nation?”

You Cannot Benefit From Country You Curse – Shettima Warns Nigerians

Published

on

Kashim Shettima has warned Nigerians against hauling curses on the country as a result of the hardship, stating that it would be impossible for abusers to benefit from a system they have abused.

He stated that there are a lot of opportunities in Nigeria and therefore urged Nigerians to count their blessings instead of putting the country down through words.

In his words, “Let us count our blessings. Let us not put our country down.

He emphasized that, “It cannot be tales of woes all the time. As bad as things are today and with all the inflation, there are sectors that are doing incredibly well. The health sector is doing very well.

The petroleum sector is doing well. The Agric sector is doing well, for those who are planting cassava.

“People buy it there on the farm. I am not saying that things are easy. The government has come with very tough reforms.

“However, you have to position yourself in the reform. If you go out and say Nigeria is a shitty country, forgive my French, you are going to get shitty results.

The 65th Ordinary Session of the Authority is holding at the Presidential Villa in Abuja where he is expected to pass on the torch to another leader.

The Military leaders of Niger, Mali, and Burkina Faso rule out returning to ECOWAS even as President Bola Tinubu leads Heads of State of the 15-member bloc in a Summit in Abuja to persuade them to return.

“Westerners consider that we belong to them and our wealth also belongs to them. They think that they are the ones who must continue to tell us what is good for our states. This era is gone forever; our resources will remain for us and our populations,”
says Burkina Faso’s leader, Capt. Ibrahim Traoré.

“”Our people have irrevocably turned their back on ECOWAS,” Niger’s General Abdourahamane Tiani says.

“The attack on one of us will be an attack on all the other members,” insists Mali’s leader, Col. Assimi Goïta.

The trio signed a confederation treaty on Saturday, underscoring their determination to chart a joint course and exit the bloc which is urging them to return to democratic rule.
