The General Overseer of Bible Life Church International, Bishop (Prof) Leonard Umunna,has warned that Nigeria is pushing towards another civil war in different directions.
Umunna also said that unless the nation’s leaders handled the incessant killing of local farmers by Fulani Herdsmen in different parts of the country with Godly wisdom, it could plunge the country into a catastrophic consequence.
The Bishop, who disclosed this while addressing newsmen in his church
office at Lagos said the current feeling of anger among the people across the nation was enough to lead to revolution.
He said: “If you look at the case of Benue killings, the lopsided political appointments with growing cries of marginalization if you
take into cognizance the level of poverty in the land; deprivation, youth unemployment and general insecurity, you will know that these can lead to war.
“Nigeria is pushing towards another civil war in different directions. A good leader does not care about your religion, your tribe or any of
such. A good leadership must reflect on the faces of the people,” he stated, stressing that “if the majority of your people are not happy, then you have missed it.”
“I don’t mean you must dance to their tune in everything, but those things that are legitimate and those things that make for good living
must be made available but the way it is now in the country, it appears that majority of Nigerians are not happy and they are saying
that government must listen to them and be more proactive.
“I don’t know whether it is when all Nigerians are dead that they will realize that the government is in shambles. The time to put things in order is now that the people are still breathing,” he said.
