Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Rev. Fr. Matthew Hassan Kukah, has outlined the need for the insecurity bedeviling the country to be tackled.
Speaking on Thursday, June 22, at a conference to mark the 10th anniversary of the priestly ordination of Rev. Fr. Stephen Ojapah, a Catholic Priest, Kukah stated that Nigerians now travel with fear over insecurity.
The Catholic Bishop also said that the country can’t develop without security. He said;
“Unless we have a sense of respect for one another is enshrine and we take the sense of community beyond the boundary of religion and begin to see ourselves and create some level of civility around ourselves, it will be difficult. This is where I think religious leaders have a role to play.
“Trust is becoming a scarce commodity as we no longer know who to trust largely because of what the society has become as a result of banditry.”
