Catholic Bishop of Sokoto
Diocese, Rev. Matthew
Kukah, has advised Federal
Government to appoint
leaders who would be able to
implement its policies.
Kukah gave the advice in
Lagos at a programme tagged,
“The Platform Nigeria”,
organised by the Covenant
Christian Centre in Lagos to
mark the 55th Anniversary of
Nigeria’s independence.
He said leaders should be
able to use government polices
to develop the economy in
spite of the fact that some of
these policies might not make
the desired impact.
Kukah added, “government
should review its structure
of governance because it has
affected the ability of past
leaders to function well.
“The country needs
leaders who will facilitate
development of the policies
and not accidental leaders
who are in the office to loot the
nation’s wealth.’’
Kukah described the zeal by
leaders to steal public fund as
the MTN slogan “everywhere
you go’’, adding that it was
time leaders and their followers
displayed positive attitude in
all their endeavours.
He called for the
establishment of a strong
institution that would imbibe
positive knowledge on
leaders and the people for the
development of the country.
Prof. Pat Utomi, an
economist, who also spoke
at the event, urged leaders to
tap into all the sectors of the
economy because the country
was well endowed with
adequate natural resources.
