LAGOS— Director, Social Communications, Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria, Very Rev. Msgr. Gabriel Osu, has described the on-going process to review the country’s constitution as another jamboree, saying there was nothing new to be introduced into it.
Fr. Osu spoke during the 90th anniversary and reception of new members into The Apostleship of Prayer League of the Sacred Heart of Jesus of the Catholic Archdiocese of Lagos, at Christ the King Catholic Church, Akowonjo, Lagos, where about 247 new members were consecrated.
He said, “there is nothing wrong with our current constitution. It is as good as any constitution in the world. Our problem is that we cannot obey the constitution. Our problem is not in the constitution but implementation.
On his part, the President of the group, Sir Geoffrey Nebeolisa, advised the new members to love God and human beings in all their endeavours, adding: “Your presumed love for Jesus will be incongruous if you lose sight of the main principle of our solidarity, which is anchored on love and humility”.
Jesus is love and whosoever does not love is a murderer and a murderer has no part in the Lord. “Your love for Jesus must be characterised by your repentance, forgiveness and good relationship with fellow mortals. It is unfortunate though that a lot of Christians do wrong things in their crass myopic and ignorant desire to serve God.”
