By Olivia Isibor (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – According to former Catholic archbishop of Abuja, John Onaiyekan, Nigerian politicians are happy with the docile disposition of Nigerians to national issues.
The cleric said this on Tuesday in Abuja at the north-central zonal dialogue conference, organised by Lux Terra Leadership Foundation, in partnership with Savannah Centre for Diplomacy, Democracy and Development, charging Nigerians to hold their elected leaders accountable in order for them to live up to their responsibilities.
“Nigerians have gotten used to just sitting and complaining about everything. They complain about government and politicians, but they do not take their role of citizen participation seriously,” he said.

“The leaders are happy about this and take full advantage of the docile nature of most Nigerians.”
The cleric also reminded leaders that taking the oath of office with either the Bible or Quran puts them under the judgment of God.
