…Accuses them of sleeping on duty
By Achadu Gabriel, Kaduna
The Catholic Archbishop of Kaduna, Most Rev Matthew Man-Oso Ndagoso has accused Nigeria leaders of sleeping on duty and not showing empathy.
The Bishop made the accusation against the backdrop of the insecurity, of kidnapping and killings bedevilling the Nation,
Archbishop Ndagoso made the comment while fielding questions from Journalists at 2021 annual Archdiocesan Pastoral council meeting
/general assembly in Kaduna.
“It is unfortunate where we have gotten ourselves in this country, to have a leader who is sleeping on duty. I think this is precisely what one can say we have a leader who is sleeping”.
“For how many months now, everyday there is killing and yet we don’t hear anything from the Commander-In-Chief. something is basically wrong”.
“All the things happening in this country has indicated that we are living in a failed state. We need to hear from our President telling us the concrete steps that he is taking to end this insecurity, we don’t want to be hearing from the spokesperson, we did not vote for him; Nigerians didn’t elect the spokesperson”.
“President, in civilised countries when two or three are killed, you see them appearing and giving people assurance that he is with them, but here in Nigeria we have a leader who doesn’t talk who doesn’t care, who doesn’t show any sign of empathy to the people. It is discouraging”.
Ndagoso also called on the federal and Kaduna state government to rescue victims who are still in kidnappers den, lamenting that a Priest, Fr. John has been in bandits captivity for 2 years and 2 months.
He also called on the government to secure lives and property of Nigerians, adding that the primary responsibility of every government is to secure lives and property of its citizens.
While speaking, the Guest speaker, Rev. Fr. Raymond Aina called on Nigeria leaders to wake up to its responsibility, adding that Nigeria is in a state of inevitable.
