The Bishop of Kano Diocese Anglican Communion Most Rev. Zakka L. Nyam has said the Nigerian voters voted for President Muhammadu Buhari in 2015 for him to bring the desire change that will benefits them hence urged him to cabals that will tarnish his administration.
The Bishop who stated this at the Anglican Communion Advent held in Kaduna yesterday said, if any set of people under the name of cabal has hijacked the government, it is the duty of President Buhari to take back the government from them because he will be held responsible for what ever happen during his tenure.
“Everyday, I keep hearing and reading from the print and electronic media that some set of cabals are now controlling the government but to me that is not an excuse for the government not to carry out its constitutional duties.
“The man that we put to head the affairs of the nation for the four years is president Muhammadu Buhari, so let nobody come out and tell me some cabals are controlling him if that is the case then he is weak and should be voted out in 2019.” He said.
The Bishop added that if the people appointed by President Buhari as his aides are not working, he should change them because everything is moving too slow and it is time for the president to change “Gear”.
Speaking on the problems bedeviling the country, Bishop Nyam said what Nigerians need today is dialogue. According to him, if the people who have been living in peace and harmony decided to be killing each other for no reason then something is wrong and the only way to address this is to bring the two parties to a round table and hear what the problem is.
“I grew up in a community in Adamawa state and behind our house we have Fulani herdsmen and we have lived in peace with them at least for the past sixty years of my life but today the same set of Fulani are now joining foreign Fulanis to kill people that they once lived as brothers and sisters with.
“Even the Boko haram if the government can identify their leaders, they should be called to the round table to express their grieviencies and that is the only way forward.” He said.
He explained that the Ecclesiastical province of Kaduna decided to organize the advent program to prepare the birth of Christ which is December 25th, saying John the Baptist announced the birth of Christ before he was born so the Anglican communion decided to call together to do the same by praying for the leaders of the country, the church leaders, the Muslim community and those who will be traveling this period.
