The Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Dioceses, Bishop Matthew Kukah, said yesterday in Birnin Kebbi, the Kebbi State capital, that Nigeria needs nothing but meritocracy to develop.
Kukha who instead that, the bitter division in Nigeria orchestrated by religion, region and ethnicity was doing no one any good, rather increased the faint chances of making better headways.
Speaking before administering the sacrament of confirmation on 143 candidates at the St. Dominic Catholic Church in Rafin Atiku area of the metropolis, Bishop Kukah said, Nigeria is in trying times.
Kukah affirmed to those confirmed that, the sacrament now makes them soldiers of the faith. They are therefore required to go all out, profess their faith and demonstrate the love of God to the whole wide world.
He however said, “All that is needed to fix Nigeria is an egalitarian society where meritocracy is the acceptable and operational order. Nigerian must therefore strive to be a society where equality of rights are non- negotiable”.
