ABUJA—PRIMATE, Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), the Most Revd. Nicholas Okoh, has admonished President Goodluck Jonathan to look inward, as there were disloyal elements within the system that are sabotaging government’s efforts to curb the activities of the Islamic sect, known as Boko Haram, in the country.

The Primate also appealed to Nigerian Supreme Council for Islamic Affairs, NSCIA, Northern traditional rulers and Arewa Consultative Forum, ACF, to take decisive action to curtail the serial bombings, saying condemning and distancing themselves from the attacks were not sufficient.

Okoh, who gave the admonition when he paid a condolence visit to St. Theresa Catholic Church, Madalla, the scene of the Christmas Day bomb blast in Niger State, acknowledged that although it was a bad time for the parish and Christendom, “we are sure that evil will not win. Even in Nigeria, evil will not prevail so that the righteous will not put their hands in bad things.”

He said there were some people in the system pretending to be concerned, but were stylishly preventing the people at the helm of the affairs from knowing what actually the situation was.

His words:  “Government business is an intricate business, may be there are certain things they do not want to reveal to the public to avoid compromising their method.”
