Christian Association of Nigerian (CAN) said the current happenings have worsened the country’s image abroad as her citizens were being seen as thieves or beggars.
CAN president, Archbishop Daniel Okoh, said this at the opening ceremony of the third Abuja Archdiocesan General Assembly with the theme: “Witness in Politics: The Role of the Catholic Faithful, than now.”
Okoh said Nigeria is passing through challenging times that require all hands to be on deck in order to salvage it lest it descends into a state of anarchy.
He said it was a collective responsibility to negate such perception by the citizens conducting themselves in their daily lives.
“The image of Nigeria has gone so low that every citizen is perceived as either a thief or a beggar who has nothing to offer but this is not true.
“It is our individual and collective responsibility to negate such perception by conducting ourselves in our daily lives (both private and public) in the light of the values that we learnt from our Lord, Jesus Christ,” Okoh said.
He tasked those who engage in partisan politics to remember that they need to provide leadership in showing right values so that they can influence good governance that will bring about a peaceful and prosperous nation.
