Sokoto, 31 March, 2022 / 9:00 pm (ACI Africa).
A Catholic Bishop in Nigeria has urged parents in the West African country to be always available for their children to protect them from cultists and other social vices that might destroy their future.
In a Tuesday, March 29 homily when he conferred the Sacrament of Confirmation to 26 candidates at St. Mary's Dutsima Catholic Church in Sokoto Diocese, Bishop Matthew Hassan Kukah said that many parents prefer to take more time at their workplaces or businesses at the expense of being with their children.
“I want to warn the parents, don’t outsource the responsibility of taking care of your children from cultists,” Bishop Kukah said.
Still addressing himself to parents, the Nigerian Bishop added, “Many of you believe that it’s better to spend more time in your shop than to monitor what your children are doing.”
He encouraged parents to consider training their children in Catholic institutions at all levels where sound academic and moral education is given serious attention.
