Nigeria in a state of hopelessness under Buhari – Catholic Bishops

Catholic Bishops in Nigeria under the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria (CBCN), have stated that the realities in the streets of the country negates the promise by President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015 during his inauguration to ensure national integration and cohesion.

The pastors, therefore, asked the Federal Government to immediately address the tension and grievances in the country.

In a communiqué at the end of their second plenary meeting in Jalingo, Taraba, on September 15, the clerics said the country was currently passing through a phase that is marked by tension, agitation and a general sense of hopelessness and dissatisfaction.

The communiqué was made available to journalists in Ado Ekiti by Bishop Felix Ajakaye of Ekiti Diocese and signed by the President, Most Revd Ignatius Ayau Kaigama (Archbishop of Jos), and the Secretary, Most Reverend William A. Avenya (Bishop of Gboko).

They cited what the President had said, “Having just a few minutes ago sworn on the Holy Book, I intend to keep my oath and serve as President to all Nigerians. I belong to everybody and I belong to nobody.”
