The Archbishop of Abuja Diocese, Ignatius Kaigama, asserted that the widespread insecurity ravaging several communities are as a result of Nigerians’ sinful ways.
“The brutal killings, kidnappings, immoral and anti-social activities indifferent parts of Nigeria are brought about by the cumulative effect of sins in the nation,” he stated.
Mr Kaigama said this in his homily on Easter Sunday at the Our Lady Queen of Nigeria Pro Cathedral in Abuja.
“Amidst the religious and political voices of hatred and violence, Muslims and Christians, whose Ramadan and Easter coincide this year again, should go beyond mutual courteous felicitations to be instruments of fostering social harmony and peaceful co-existence.
“Nigerians should rather speak and act against corruption, injustice and greed; doing everything to overcome ethno-religious and socio-political hostilities,” he said.
Mr Kaigama opined that Nigeria could only witness a change when citizens stop offending God and one another.
“In Nigeria, we have the habit of only blaming those in political leadership, but forgetting that in our private lives,” he stressed.
He advised christians that to run the race to eternity they must ensure that their lives and work on earth will win for them the crown of glory in heaven.
