Cardinal Urges Leaders to Use Nation’s Resources Equitably

The Catholic Archbishop of Abuja, John Cardinal Onaiyekan, on Sunday February 09 urged leaders in government and the private sector to use the nation’s resources equitably for the benefit of all, reports CISA.

Cardinal Onaiyekan gave the advice in a sermon at the thanksgiving service to mark his 70th birthday at Our Lady Queen of Nigeria Pro Cathedral in Abuja according to the Leadership.

He said God endowed Nigeria with enormous resources that should be distributed equally amongst Nigerians irrespective of their backgrounds.

The cardinal said that equity and justice were part of the solution to Nigeria’s problems of insecurity, corruption and moral decadence.

“This is my message to all those who control and manage our resources. They must be shared equally for peace and prosperity in our nation,’’ he said.

Onaiyekan also said that Nigerians must brace to the challenge of nation building, noting that no contribution was too small or big to make Nigeria great.

According to him, “building this nation is the responsibility of all, whether you are big or small, rich or poor, it is little contributions of everyone that will make our country great.’’

He pledged his commitment to the service of the church and to greatness of humanity in the years ahead.

Onaiyekan, who was full of gratitude to God and his colleagues in the service of the church, said continued selfless service would preoccupy his activities henceforth.

“I look to the future ready for God’s will, to do my best and to cover lost grounds in the cause of my adventure as priest. I want to dedicate the rest of my life to doing only those things that will please God because every other thing is vanity, nothing else matters to me now but to please God,’’ he said.
