“If you fought a war 40yrs ago, and the problem for which the war was fought still persist, then something is wrong” He lashed out to the president , in a rather obstrictive tone.
The Bishop continued, “Every Nigerian is angry but the reasons may be different” relating the various regional agitations of different ethnic nationalities as been dissatisfied with the Nigeria state while declaring that “Collectively, we are all frustrated in Nigeria”.
