Herdsmen Killing: Catholic Bishops Lambast Buhari
The Catholic Bishops under the aegis of the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria has come out to voice out their displeasure with the turn-out of events emanating from this administration.
The Catholic Bishops stated this when they paid a courtesy visit to President Buhari at the Council Chamber, Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The CBCN in an address delivered by its President, the Archbishop of Jos, the CBCN, reminded the President that he came to power under the goodwill of Nigerians but the goodwill had been bastardized as a result of the failure of government to tackle the myriads of problems bedeviling the nation.
Most Rev. Dr. Ignatius Ayau Kaigama told the President that the increasing calls for restructuring of the country, agitation for secession, among other things, were as a result of the outright disregard for the principle of federal character by the government of the day.
They went further to advise that elected political office holders should concentrate and focus more on the business of governance rather than spend energy on politicking and electioneering.
They also implored the president to use his affinity with the herdsmen to tackle the menace that has continuously bedeviled the nation in the form of killings of innocent Nigerians.
The Bishops, in the address, which was co-signed by Most Rev. Dr. William Avenya, Bishop of Gboko Diocese of Benue State and Secretary of CBCN, said the silence of the Federal Government on the attacks by herdsmen was shocking and unacceptable.
