Dr Samson Ayokunle, President of the Christian Association of Nigeria CAN, has called on Political leaders to stop exhibiting the habits of abandoned projects and lampooned
He said this by making reference to the Federal Government for not completing about 200kms Abuja-Lokoja highway 15 years after its flag off.
He made this complaint in Lokoja during the inauguration of Government House Chapel for Christian worshippers built by Governor Yahaya Bello’s administration.
He added that the lackadaisical attitudes as regards
the construction of the Abuja -Lokoja highway remains are not encouraging.
He warned that Nigeria may not move forward until leaders imbibe the spirit of sincerity and fear of God,
“Lokoja-Abuja highway is a shame of the country. Do something and remove this shame, 15 years constructing a 200kms road is a shame,” he lampooned.
”Nigeria is a complex nation with different ethnic, religious and socio-cultural background, adding that with its endowed human and materials resources if properly harnessed together, the country would join the comity of great states, and dust off the present hardships that has bedevilled the nation.
Acccording to him, for the country to be great, it needs justice, fairness and mutual respect for one and another in e every aspect of the country.
“While practising democracy, let us use our native wisdom. Where you are included, you see government as your own, and where you are excluded, you agitate to right the wrongs. We need justice, fairness and mutual respect in Nigeria,” he said.
Speaking, Governor Bello who was represented by his deputy, Chief Edward Onoja said that he is happy that God gave them the wisdom and strength to construct a chapel for Christian denomination in the state in the seat of government.
