We Support Bishop Kukah’s Statement On Nigeria’s Woes- Catholic Secretariat
The Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria (CSN), Monday, reiterated the position of Bishop Matthew Kukah that Nigeria is indeed becoming a failed State.
Releasing a statement to support the Christmas Mass message of the Bishop, the Catholic Secretariat wondered why the Federal Government and the Northerners who had been attacking Bishop Kukah since he released his message could not face the reality that Nigerian had haemorrhage to the point of death.
Bishop Kukah had in his Christmas message demanded an explanation from the Federal Government on why Nigerians continue to face dark alley of life arising from a multitude of challenges.
He said, “This government owes the nation an explanation as to where it is headed as we seem to journey into darkness.
“The spilling of this blood must be related to a more sinister plot that is beyond our comprehension. Are we going to remain hogtied by these evil men or are they gradually becoming part of a larger plot to seal the fate of our country?” he had asked.
In the statement signed by the National Director of CSN’s Social Communication, Fr. Mike Umoh, the Catholic secretariat pointed out that the expanding insecurity crisis and the economic challenges were just few pointers to the absence of government in Nigeria
“We are quite aware of the 2020 Christmas Message by our revered Bishop Hassan Kukah and the enormous space it has enjoyed on social media and in the public sphere.
“As expected, the agents of evil have gathered to attack the person of the Bishop and to discredit the simple obvious truth of the message. This is the stock in trade of evil people.
“However, they often succeed when good people Christians, choose to do nothing. We are therefore calling attention to this new development so that we can all rise in unison and stand for truth.
“The situation in Nigeria no longer allows anyone to sit on the fence, indifference is now a greater form of sin. Everyone must choose and stand up for what he/she believes in.
“The truth about our nation is also that there are only two parties now existing: the good and the evil, the oppressed and the oppressor, the suffering people and the benefiting government officers and their families.”
