Bishop Kukah Urges President Tinubu to Prioritise Food Security in Easter Message

The Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Sokoto, Matthew Hassan Kukah, has urged President Bola Tinubu to prioritize strategies aimed at enhancing food security and physical security in Nigeria.

In his Easter message titled, ‘Nigeria: A Time to Heal,’ Bishop Kukah emphasized the urgent need to implement effective agricultural strategies to restore dignity and honour to Nigerian citizens.

“No one needs to line up to receive aid when we are not in a war,” he stated. “Give our people back their farms and develop a comprehensive agricultural plan to put our country back on the path of honour and human dignity.”

Bishop Kukah also called on the Federal Government to adopt inclusive policies to address issues of nepotism and implement transparent recruitment processes to promote patriotism and eliminate feudalism.

He emphasized, “The government must design a more comprehensive and transparent method of recruitment to generate patriotism and reverse the effects of feudalism and prebendalism.”

Furthermore, Bishop Kukah stressed the importance of effective communication strategies to establish clear goals and timelines for achieving national objectives in agriculture and security.

Regarding insecurity, Bishop Kukah called for a reevaluation of security approaches to effectively combat insecurity. He urged for a cohesive plan to address acts of terrorism, including kidnapping and banditry, with specific timelines for results.

Despite the challenges facing Nigeria, Bishop Kukah expressed optimism for the nation’s healing, stating, “I am optimistic that our country will heal from the scars of hunger and destitution, and that the wounds of physical and psychological violence will heal.”
