Lagos Catholic Archbishop Alfred Adewale Martins said President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration is not sincere in tackling insecurity as it continues to hamper voluntary groups and fail to equip security forces.
Martins said this yesterday in Lagos State at the grand finale of the Knights of Saint Mulumba 60th anniversary celebration, adding that the breakdown in politics and values ââhas led to the emergence of unpatriotic leaders.
Martin, who coincidentally celebrated his 38th priestly ordination, said Nigerian politicians have lost faith in service to humanity and are looking for personal gain.
His words: âInsecurity is the major problem we have in Nigeria today, even the church is not safe. The government is supposed to have access to experts who will bring their expertise to solve the problem, but it does not.
When you hear the kinds of complaints and dissatisfaction from the military and the various parties, you will know that the government is disingenuous. The supply of arms and ammunition to the security forces is insufficient.
âOne of the things about Nigerian politicians is the inconsistency in goals and principles. When Femi Fani-Kayode criticized Buhari, it was not principled, otherwise he would not have joined or moved on to All Progressive Congress. It’s no surprise that we are where we are today because we have people like him who are inconsistent, âhe said.
Meanwhile, the Grand Knight Metropolitan of Lagos, KSM William Adebisi, has instructed the government to take the issue of security seriously as it affects the health and economy of the company and the behavior change of inmates â, did he declare.
