The Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Matthew Hassan Kukah, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to fix Nigeria ’s ailing economy instead of constantly blaming past leaders .
Kukah made the call at the Catholic Bishops Conference Dinner Night held at the International Event Centre , ( DOME) in Akure , Ondo State capital .
He added : “ And I think the business of government is not our business; our business is if the previous government did bad , that is why we voted a new government.
“ We did not vote a government to complain about yesterday. If we wanted yesterday, the new government would not be there. It is really about taking responsibility.
“ No matter how much you praise or abuse Jonathan , he is not the President of Nigeria. I think that people must understand that you take power to solve problems not to agonize.
“ As the head of a family , no matter how bad things are: no food in the house ; you as a father cannot enter the house crying.
“ It is the question of developing the mechanism , else you can ’t solve the problem .
“ Even my best friends in APC now realize that nobody can sing the song about Jonathan being responsible for the problems we are in .
“ We are not asking you to change the whole world , but Jonathan created problems : we are now riding a train between Abuja and Kaduna now ; the train was not there before.
“ Things that Jonathan did that can help Nigeria , let us continue with them .
“ The bad things that Jonathan did and those who deserve to go to prison should go to prison .
“ But sending people to prison will only be useful if it puts bread on the table of people” .
