Nigeria not for PDP alone-Bishops

:::The Prelate of the Anglican Church, Archbishop
Nicholas Okoh, on Friday in Abuja asked the Federal
Government to focus on “tackling corruption and
other social vices in the country rather than
embarking on constitutional amendment process.”
Also the Bishop of Kubwa Diocese, Rt. Rev. Duke
Akamisoko, warned that politicians should not take
Nigerians for a ride because “Nigeria is not for
Peoples Democratic Party alone.”
Both of them said these during the first session of
the second synod organised by the Diocese of
Kubwa, Abuja, with the theme, “Behold to obey is
better than sacrifice.”
Okoh who condemned the demolition of low income
houses by the Federal Capital Territory
Administration and eviction of residents from the
federal capital city said, “No country is only built for
the rich.”
According to him, Nigerians are innately corrupt and
the enforcement of the existing laws is in the
country remains the greatest challenge in Nigeria.
“It is not so much the problem of constitution but
people are dedicated to evil,” he added.
In the same vein, Akamisoko warned that
politicians should not take Nigerians for granted.
“People need to repent. We need to be righteous,”
he said.
“No nation can prosper with disobedience. No
nation can survive when its leaders are known for
disobedience. We are a nation of disobedience. We
have leaders who do not obey the law. Lawlessness
is happening every day and everywhere in this
“Our politicians should know that this country
belongs to all of us and not for PDP alone. We are
all stakeholders in this country. Some of us are
more Nigerians than them. How long will the PDP
