The Catholic Archbishop of Abuja, His Grace Most. Revd. Ignatius Kaigama, has charged leaders at both the Federal and State levels to set good examples for people in the country.
Kaigama made this call on Sunday during the Palm Sunday homily at St Michael’s Parish, Piwoyi, Abuja.
Alluding to Jesus’ triumphal entering into Jerusalem riding on a donkey which, according to him, is a symbol of peace and humility, the Catholic cleric, said: “By this, Jesus is teaching leaders to live simply, and to give up a lot of their excesses for the good of their people.
“The poor and needy, largely the victims of bad and corrupt governance, are often made to suffer and sacrifice for the comfort of their leaders. They are victims of social, economic, political exploitation and manipulation, whereas the corrupt leaders seek their personal interests instead of what brings progress, national growth and sustainable development.
