The current bishop of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, Matthew Kukah, has given an advise to those calling for the division of the country.
According to the bishop, it is far cheaper for Nigeria to remain as one country than breaking up into smaller units.
The outspoken clergyman gave the advise while speaking at ‘The Platform’ on Saturday, May 1.
Kukah said those seeking to secede from Nigeria may be right regarding their concerns, adding that the government must, through its body language, convince people that Nigeria’s unity is worth it.
“It may be right for everybody to want to go. Yes, it may be right for people to want to feel so dissatisfied that they want an end to what we have today. But the cost of staying together is far cheaper than the cost of everybody going his way.”
“The most important thing here is that the government must give us a reason. The body language – we need to be inspired as a country to inspire ourselves that this country is worth the psychological, the spiritual and the cultural engagements.”
The government must develop a sense of empathy and I have said this on several occasions, I do not mean anything negative and everywhere you turn to this is what Nigerians are saying.
“People are dying and we do not get a sense that those who govern us understand and see our pain because we have not seen them at funerals nor on condolence visits.
