Nigerian leaders act like drunken men – Bishop Kukah

Bishop Kukah, the Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, on Sunday, said for over 60 years, Nigerian leaders have behaved like men in a “drunken stupor who stumble and fumble while searching for the way home”.

In his Easter message made available to newsmen, the outspoken religious leader called on the Federal Government to come up with a holistic approach to put the country on a path of national healing.

“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 has 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.”
