The cleric issued a warning that the nation might not fare well if the problems weren’t resolved.

At the opening of the 14th Synod of the Diocese of Owo Anglican Communion, which was held at St. Paul’s Church, Ifon, the seat of the Ose Local Government, Fagbemi issued the caution while reading the Bishop’s Charge. “Chosen to proclaim” was the topic of the synod.

According to him, Nigeria has found itself in a most unfortunate state, to the extent that some were beginning to suggest that it is becoming a failed state as a result of the inability of the government to address the country’s problems.

He said,

“What we heard from those who have been released from kidnappers’ den is that a particular ethnic group of this country is responsible and they have a plan to take over every part of the country. We have heard this line of claim several times. A responsible government ought to have investigated this by now and come up with a clear strategy for dealing with this trend.”

On the forthcoming general elections, the cleric said Nigerians need leaders with the necessary aptitude and courage to lead the country out of its quagmire.

He also noted that until the country recognizes the rights of every Nigerian to practice the faith of their choice without any intimidation and discrimination, peace, progress, and justice will continue to elude the country.

He said,

“Going for the 2023 elections without defining these issues and many others that threaten our collective existence is to defer the evil day. I appeal to all civil, religious, and political leaders of this country to abandon all selfish interests and deal with these urgent national issues.”
