Anglican Bishop, Godwin Robinson tackles Buhari over killings in Nigeria

Unread postby Wsj » Mon May 21, 2018 9:40 am

Bishop Godwin Robinson, Bishop of Lafia (Anglican Communion), has called on the Federal Government of Nigeria to help stop the incessant killings in some parts of the country.

Robinson made the appeal while speaking with NAN on the sideline of unveiling the First Session of the Seventh Synod of the Diocese of Lafia, on Sunday in Abuja.

The Bishop called on the government to live up to its responsibility and provide security and safety for Nigerians so that the confidence of the populace would be restored.

He said: “There is a sense of insecurity and Nigerians are beginning to feel unsafe. How can we allow things to get to that state?

“There was a time I was visiting a particular part of my diocese for something and it was a security operative, who was telling me that the place is too dangerous to go to.

“I urge the government to secure the lives and property of every citizen regardless of the ethnic group, religious or political affiliation or the other.”

On the path of economy in the country, Robinson urged Nigerians, especially the youths to rise up and participate, adding that they should not wait for white-collar jobs, which are no longer there.

The bishop, however, said that the youths should also take part in politics and advised them to get their voters card ready for the upcoming elections not just as a supporter but stakeholders.

He said: “We are calling on youths to be active in politics. They should not just be supporters; they should also get up and get involved in the project, it is our country.

“The government of Nigeria needs to rise up and take us to our ‘Eldorado’. We all desire to get to the promised land.

“We are major stakeholders, we are the citizens, its ours and so we call on all and sundry to rise up, participate and get this country going.

“To rise up and walk includes the fact that every Nigerian should participate; every hand should be on deck. Nobody should be waiting for somebody else to do it for them.”
