People under this Government are suffering from psychological trauma~Bishop says

NIGERIA:The Catholic Bishop of Sokoto, Mathew Kukah, on Wednesday said Nigerians had never suffered psychological trauma like they are currently experiencing under this current government.

He said this at the inaugural lecture and Gold Prize award ceremony organised by Nigerian newspaper, ‘ThisNigeria Media Limited’.

He said, “You are sitting here in Nigeria, are you going to pretend that you don’t know that there is iniquity in this country, that we have never suffered psychological trauma like we are suffering now?

“Suddenly, we have now ended up with a country when you talk about divisiveness. It is the state that has created the division, not us the victims. You’re blaming the victim, everywhere you turn in Nigeria today what are people telling you? We are living with injustice. How do we wake up a sleeping giant, first we must admit that the country is sleeping.”

Also speaking, the Chairman of the Nigerian Governors Forum, Kayode Fayemi, said a lot was wrong with the country at the moment.

“We can talk about unity and national integration and lionise patriotism as much as we like but you cannot build the country on the basis of iniquity, injustice and the lack of fairness and expect unity to prevail”

In his remarks, Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike, said the only way to ensure credible leaders emerge is to ensure that there are free and fair elections.
