Fr. Kukah urges Tinubu to address insecurity

The Catholic Bishop of Sokoto, Bishop Mathew Kukah, has asked the incoming administration of Mr Bola Tinubu to address the security challenges in the country.
Nigeria is being confronted by a series of security challenges ranging from banditry in the North-West and North Central, terrorism in the North-East, and militancy in the South-South to calls for secession in the South-East, among several others.
Despite efforts by security agencies and the Federal Government to nip insecurity in the bud, gunmen have continued to wreak havoc as well as attack security formations in parts of the country.

In his Easter message on Sunday in Sokoto, Bishop Kukah urged Tinubu to address the situation and begin the healing process for the teeming Nigerian population.
“Keep us alive because only the living can enjoy infrastructure,” he said. I am hopeful that you will appreciate that the most urgent task facing our nation is not infrastructure or the usual cheap talk about dividends of Democracy.”
“For now, the most urgent mission is to start a psychological journey of making Nigerians feel whole again, of creating a large tent of opportunity and hope for us all, of expanding the frontiers of our collective freedom, of cutting off the chains of ethnicity and religious bigotry, of helping us recover from the feeling of collective rape by those who imported the men of darkness that destroyed our country, of recovering our country and placing us on the path to our greatness, of exorcising the ghost of nepotism and religious bigotry.”
