The Catholic bishop of the Sokoto Diocese has accused Nigerian leaders of contributing to the development of other places.
He called for the need to take stock of the rot and an urgent solution.
Kukah, while speaking at wake keep mass for His Grace, Archbishop Peter Jatau at St Joseph’s Catholic Cathedral in Kaduna said, “We sin at home by stealing the nation’s resources, but we seek repentance and forgiveness in Saudi Arabia and Jerusalem in the guise of lesser or higher pilgrimages.
“We make money from abandoning projects duly paid for by governments, which have adopted ‘contractocracy’ as a governance mechanism.
“We are allowing others to use our money to develop their own infrastructure. Our elites all assembled in Dubai for Christmas and also to welcome the new year.
“As virtue recedes into the sunset in our country, there is an urgent need for us to pause and take stock of what is required to save our country,” Bishop Kukah added.
