Catholic bishops send message to Nigerian, South African govts on recent xenophobic attacks

The Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria (CBCN) has condemned the recent xenophobic attacks in South Africa where many non-nationals, including Nigerians lost their lives and properties.

A communique signed by the President and the Secretary of CBCN, Most. Rev. Augustine Akubeze and Most. Rev. Camillus Umoh, respectively, also condemned the reprisals in Nigeria and called on the governments of both countries to resolve the issue.

CBCN , however, commended the South African Catholic Bishops’ Conference (SACBC) for their condemnation of the attacks and urged the government to take decisive steps to end it.

The catholic bishops also urged the Federal Government to continue to do more in the fight against insecurity.

“We reiterate that without adequate security of lives and property, there can be no stability and enabling environment for meaningful development.

“We urge government at all levels to provide an enabling environment that will make it possible for both the government and the private sector to create job opportunities for our teeming youths.

“This will certainly minimise the menace of insecurity in our land, ” the communique added.(Dailypost)
