Blame Politicians For Communal Clashes - Rev. Henry Ndukuba

Blame Politicians For Communal Clashes - Rev. Henry Ndukuba

The Primate of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Henry Ndukuba, during a chat has said that politicians were to blame for the communal clashes in the northern part of the country.

He also said that the Nigerian political elites have remained "insincere", adding that they have "not really come out to deal with the issues," that, according to him, are "mostly caused by the ruling class."

He said, “The entire country is being overwhelmed with insecurity to the point of demonstrations in some part of the country. Am I talking about the sufferings of the Middle-Belt? They instigated communal problems. The Tiv and the Jukun are fighting and it is right now spreading to other tribes that are basically Christians.

“The situation in which our federalism becomes federalism in which we come to the centre and grab the reins of power, and we grab the reigns of resources of the nation is faulty. We need to rethink how we need to exist as a nation and how we need to use the resources we have to the advantage and good of all.

 “We have problems, but one thing is that we are so insincere. Our political leadership has not really come out to deal with the issues. Nigerian problems are mostly caused by the ruling class. If the ruling class will get it right, Nigeria will not have problem. We have foundational problems. Our concept of leadership is faulty.”
