Nigeria Will Be Great Again – Bishop Kukah

The Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Mathew Hassan Kukah has come out to express concern about the ubiquity of the military in our national life.

He recently had his say in his Easter message made available to journalists in Sokoto, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, with the presence of soldiers everywhere around, it is impossible to explain how we can say we are in a civilian democracy with the military literally looking like an army of occupation with an octopussean spread across the nation.

He, however, added that Nigeria will be great again if we ride the tide together in hope.

His words, “This has very serious consequences both for its professionalism, its integrity and perceived role in protecting society. No other person than the immediate past Chief of Defence Staff, General Lucky Irabor, rightly observed recently that the military is facing the dilemma of what he called, β€˜see finish’. It is now difficult to say whether the persistence of insecurity is a cause or a consequence of military ubiquity.

Our leaders chose the feast rather than the fast. We are today reaping what we sowed yesterday. For over 60 years, our leaders have looked like men in a drunken stupor, staggering, stumbling and fumbling, slurring in speech, with blurred visions searching for the way home.

The corruption of the years of a life of immoral and sordid debauchery have spread like cancer destroying all our vital organs. The result is a state of a hangover that has left our nation comatose. Notwithstanding, Easter is a time to further reflect on the road not taken. It is a time to see if this Golgotha of pain can lead us to the new dawn of the resurrection. Nigeria can and Nigeria will be great again. Let us ride this tide together in hope.”
