The Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, Matthew Kukah, has again hit at the Muhammadu Buhari-led federal government over the grave security situation in Nigeria.
Mr Kukah, a vocal critic of the administration, delivered the new criticisms in his Easter message. In the message titled “Nigeria: Before our glory departs,” Mr Kukah reflects on the current realities of Nigeria and its citizens.
He said Nigeria’s predicament reminded him of Israel’s situation that led to the death of Eli, the great high priest of Israel Mr Kukah said Nigeria has become a “massive killing field, as both government and the governed look on helplessly.
“A thick and suffocating cloud of desperation, despondency, desolation, gloom, and misery hangs in the hot air. We have no message and have no idea how long this will last. Our people seek solace and protection, but frustration and darkness threaten to drown them. Is their government on AWOL
“Part of the statement read: The very survival of the nation is at stake. The nation is pulling apart. Widespread serious insecurity for long unaddressed has left the sad and dangerous impressions that those who have assumed the duty and authority to secure the nation are either unable, or worse, unwilling to take up the responsibilities to their office.
Patience is running out. Sadly, all of these warnings are still falling on deaf ears.”
