Kaduna, 25 November, 2022 / 9:00 pm (ACI Africa).
Nigeria is in need of leaders capable of managing “very well” the cultural and religious diversity of citizens, the Catholic Archbishop of the country’s Kaduna Archdiocese has said.
In a Tuesday, November 22 report, Archbishop Matthew Man-Oso Ndagoso says the West African nation’s diverse cultures and religious affiliations is “a blessing from God”.
“Nigeria is a very diverse country; we all come from different cultural and religious backgrounds and our diversity is not a curse but a blessing from God,” Archbishop Ndagoso says.
He adds, “We need leaders who can be able to manage our diversity very well. Therefore, if our cultural and religious backgrounds should be properly managed, it will enrich our country.”
The Nigerian Archbishop says that it is regrettable that the West African nation currently has leaders who “are so nepotistic” and do not value the cultural and religious diversity.
