The Catholic Archbishop of Lagos, Most Rev. Alfred Adewale Martins, on Tuesday appealed to public office holders to demonstrate their commitment towards improving the living standard of the electorate.
Martins told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that the utterances of many politicians were not geared towards achieving good governance, rather, overheating the polity.
“I think the heat that is there in the polity is affecting the quality of governance at this time.
“Those who have the charge of government now at different level need to not just be thinking about 2015 general elections but think about the present-day Nigeria and Nigerians.
“Think of how life is going to be made bearable, rather than creating the sort of tension that we are feeling at this point in time”.
He decried the undue attention being paid to the 2015 general elections, saying political leaders were losing focus on the needs of the majority of Nigerians. (NAN)
