Why people feel sad in Nigeria- Bishop Madu

The Anglican Bishop of Oji-River Diocese,
Most Rev. Amos Madu, has revealed the
reason the citizens are not happy in Nigeria.
According to him, people were not happy in
the country because they lacked exemplary
leadership qualities among political elites.
Madu said this yesterday while delivering a
homily at the service of songs held for late
former Vice-President, Dr Alex Ekwueme, at
the Cathedral Church of the Good Shepherd,
Independence Layout in Enugu.
He, however, urged leaders in the country to
lead with the fear of God by showing
exemplary qualities at all times.
He said: “why people are not happy in the
country is due to lack of exemplary
leadership qualities among leaders.
“We will continue to pray for God’s
intervention to give us leaders with
impeccable character as well as men and
women with forthrightness.”

The archbishop, however, urged Nigerians to
learn to live without giving or taking bribe
as exhibited by the late Ekwueme.
“While Ekwueme was in power and out of
power as well as wield a lot of political
clout, he did not forget to attend church
services and draw near to God.
“He was a very courageous man that led the
progressives in G-34 to confront the late
Gen. Sani Abacha to demand that Nigeria
transit from military to civil rule,’’ he said.
Dignitaries that attended the service
included Gov. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu
State; Speaker of Enugu State House of
Assembly, Chief Edward Ubosi and President
of Ohaneze Ndigbo Worldwide, Chief Nnia
Nwodo.

Others are former Minister of Power, Prof.
Barth Nnaji; former Secretary to Anambra
State Government, Chief Oseloka Obaze;
President, Nigeria Institute of Architects, Dr
Adibe Njoku and Retired Justice Eugene
Ubaezonu of the Court of Appeal.
