Hope not lost, we can still have a better Nigeria, says Archbishop Kaigama


Despite challenges posed by the current economic hardship, poverty, insecurity and other social vices in Nigeria, Nigerians can still reclaim their country, the Catholic Archbishop of Abuja Archdiocese, Ignatius Kaigama has said.

Archbishop Kaigama stated this on Saturday, March 16, at the 2024 Ladies of St. Mulumba Day Celebration in Abuja with the title ‘Strengthening our resilience amidst Emerging Challenges in Nigeria’.

He said this is the time that Christians and patriotic Nigerians must increase their commitment and vigor in confronting the challenges and difficulties confronting the country.

To return Nigeria to its glorious past, Archbishop Kaigama said, “Nigerians must once again learn to stand together as a nation and genuinely work towards peace and unity.”

He called on women as mothers of the nation to wake up to the responsibilities of motherhood by building good homes through Christ, which would reflect on the growth and development of Nigeria.

He said, “As Ladies and mother’s, we must do our part by being honest and ethical in all aspects of our own lives. It is only by working together to enthrone a culture of trust that we can create a Nigeria that is fair and just to all.”

He further urged mothers to cultivate the virtue of peace, humility and love in their relationships with their families and society.

Archbishop Kaigama said the current situation in the country calls for prayers for God to touch the heart of those perpetrating evil.

The LSM celebration kicked off on Friday March 15. The Ladies of St Mulumba visited the FCT school for the blind children, where they made donation of learning materials.
