Catholic Archbishop of Lagos, Most Rev. Adewale Martins has urged the Federal Government to address the issues of marginalization if it hopes to bring to an end the ethnic agitations hitting up the polity.
The clergy said this when he administered sacrament of confirmation to over 200 Catholics at St Joseph Catholic Church, Kirikiri, in Lagos. The archbishop also said Nigeria is better off as a cooperate entity rather than a divided country, adding that Nigerians should also be careful of what they say about other people, which according to him, can result to separation and war.
“The Lord is also calling on those who have control over this nation as leaders to ensure they take care of everybody in this country. If people feel marginalised, then, government should take responsibility and do something. In our country today, there is lack of security. If we are not worried about Boko Haram and all we hear that they do, we are worried about Fulani herdsmen, kidnappers, armed robbers and hardship in the land, all these make us to fear,” he said.r and cling unto him as the beacon of hope for their survival in Nigeria.
