Kaigama Urges Christians, Muslims to Reject Violence, Corruption, Injustice
Written by on April 18, 2022
Catholic Archbishop of Abuja Metropolitan Archdiocese, His Grace, Most Rev. Ignatius Kaigama, has challenged all Christians and Muslims in the country to jointly rise against the evil of violence, corruption, injustice and greed.
He praised the courage exhibited by an Abuja-based Islamic Sheikh for not succumbing to religious sentiments in criticising “the lackadaisical attitude of government to the safety of lives following bombings, kidnappings, and endless acts of insecurity” in the country.
Ahead of the 2023 General Election, Kaigama said that Nigerians want selfless and empathetic leaders, not those paranoid, defensive and antagonistic towards critics.
The Archbishop added that Nigerians should detest leaders operating in their comfort zones and who do not feel the discomfort and pain of the lack of electricity, potable water, fuel or the social dislocation caused by the frequent disruption of schools and medical services due to strikes by workers pressing for their legitimate rights.
