If you have no idea of how to develop Nigeria, don’t go into politics – Cardinal Onaiyekan

A former Catholic Archbishop of Abuja, Cardinal John Onaiyekan, has decried the state of security in Nigeria especially banditry and kidnappings along the Abuja-Kaduna road.

Speaking on Saturday at a conference on migration, themed ‘Action against irregular migration of Nigerians’ in Abuja, Cardinal Onaiyekan asked those without any knowledge in education and security not to go into politics.

“If you have no idea of how to develop Nigeria through education, security, amongst others then, do not go into politics,” he said.

“This same kidnapping issue happened along Lokoja-Kabba road some years back; I could not travel then. I could not understand that 30km of the road cannot be policed. It just gives you a very sad impression that we are really at the mercy of the criminals. So you get ready to pay them, this is not the way to live.”
