By Felix Oti, Awka
The Bishop on the Niger, Church of Nigeria Anglican Communion, The Rt Rev Dr Owen Nwokolo has said that Nigeria is a growing country, developing, and all we need is for everyone to be patriotic.
Bishop Nwokolo made this known during his 2021 end of the year luncheon with journalists in Onitsha the Anambra state commercial nerve centre.
The Bishop on the Niger said that the government is trying on their part without corresponding patriotism from the masses. He, therefore, urged people no be appointing accusing fingers on one person or the other but:should all learn how to be our brother’s keeper’.
His words: This country is a developing country we are growing, We had our independence many years ago, we are all working hard to get over various challenges. Here in this country, we are learning to have free and fair elections and one may agree with me that there is an improvement on that.
‘The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) is making efforts to improve so that when people cast their votes, the vote will count.
‘Recently, Anambra state had their election, we can say there is an improvement on how things are done.
:You talk about the road network, Federal government is making efforts. There are areas where we are having bad roads which are coursing mishap and road accident. One can say there is an improvement.
‘Here in the South East, we have been hammering on having second Niger Bridge. If you pass through there, the bridge is fast going.
‘The government is trying their best. The problem f insecurity is where we are having challenges which I believe the Federal government, state government and all people should make efforts to join hands together so that we can make our society more secure.
:Security is for everybody, we have people they must secure people but we need to be vigilant and make reports when necessary.
‘Generally, we are growing country, developing, and all we need is for everyone to be patriotic. There is no need to appointing acussing fingers on one person or the other, We should all learn how to be our brother’s keeper and with that our country will be what it suppose to be’ Right Reverend Dr Nwokolo added.
