Onaiyekan cautions against lopsided appointments
The Catholic Bishop of Abuja, John Cardinal Onaiyekan has called on the present administration to desist from lopsided appointments as that is the major cause of tension in the country.
Speaking yesterday in Abuja at the Annual Conference of the Nigeria Anglican- Roman Catholic Commission (NARCC) with the theme; "The Church as Communion, Local and Universal" Onaiyekan called on leaders to be sensitive about the people they govern.
He said “Whatever decision they take or actions they put up they should ensure that there is no lopsided appointments in the country or special benefits given to any part of the country.
"This is even dangerous for those concerned, if a group of people who bare in government now happened to be Muslim and they are doing things simply to please and to promote Islam, they must get ready for when a Christian would be in power and he would also begin to do the same but is that the way for the country to move forward?"
Onayekan said that everyone is alert to the several appointments being given in the country hence "they should make sure that they do not give any group or persons reasons to think or believe that they are being marginalized or badly treated. That is what the President and all those with him swore that they would run the affairs of this nation without fear or favour."
