The Catholic Archbishop of Abuja, Ignatius Kaigama, has lamented the hardship faced by Nigerians under the President Muhammadu Buhari administration.
According to Kaigama, snakes, monkeys and termites were looting money while students were kept out of school for months.
Speaking on Sunday at St Joseph the Worker Catholic Church in Kugbo area of Abuja, Kaigama urged Nigerians to jettison their differences and elect credible leaders in 2023.
He said: “You go to school, you cannot graduate, you finish school, no work, you hear about snakes swallowing money, monkeys taking money and termites eating vouchers. All these are wahala, and so they should bind us together.
“It should make us unite like the lepers. They came together and achieved a common good, so when we are together, we will be able to make better choices in the coming elections.”
“In the ugly situation of our country, we must be united, particularly in making wise political choices because God can take away the socio-economic and political leprosy in the country, and the only way we can ensure this happens is by using the ballot,’’ the Catholic archbishop stated.
