Bishop Matthew Kukah, the Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, has described Nigeria as a huge wasteland, huge debris of deceit, lies, treachery, double-dealing and duplicity.
He noted that the privileged few were busy looting the country and seeking for repentance in Saudi Arabia and Jerusalem, while spending yuletide in Dubai.
Bishop Kukah spoke while delivering a sermon entitled ‘A Nation in Search of its Soul,’ at the wake keep Mass for His Grace, Archbishop Peter Jatau at the St. Joseph Catholic Cathedral in Kaduna.
“We sin at home by stealing the nation’s resources, but we seek repentance and forgiveness in Saudi Arabia and Jerusalem in the guise of lesser or higher pilgrimages.
“We make money from abandoning projects duly paid for by governments, which have adopted ‘contractocracy’ as a governance mechanism.
“We are allowing others to use our money to develop their own infrastructure. Our elites all assembled in Dubai for Christmas and also to welcome the new year.
“As virtue recedes into the sunset in our country, there is an urgent need for us to pause and take stock of what is required to save our country,” Bishop Kukah added.
