A cleric in Ibadan , Evangelist Adekunle Nikoro has associated the problems bedeviling Nigeria as social disintegration and a crack down in ethics and cultural values .
Evangelist Nikoro disclosed this today in Ibadan while delivery a message titled” words of intercession “ as it affects the church and the society at the redeem Christian church , Dominion Arena
He disclosed that the church and the society at large must have a change of attitude towards our social norms , cultural values and ethics in order to salvage the country from the deteriorating ladder it’s presently on.
“ I remember when I was young , Nigerians lived and treated one another like members of a big family irrespective of their cultural background . children were not only trained by their biological parents but by the whole community , fathers and mothers went the extra mile to train other people’s children on the right norms , culture and ethics of the community , and obviously the results are there as reference .
Nigeria in that era had peace security wise , Nigerians could sleep and leave our door opened without the fear of armed robbers and other threats we now experience in the society.
In those good era , If an elderly person saw a child with the biggest denomination , they made enquiry and question the source of the money and if not satisfied with the responses given , they go as far as reach out to the biological parents of the child , children then all have the fear of the elders in the society but the reverse is the case in present time , Nigerians now care only about their immediate family, without any concern about those people around them .
Nigerians at the moment ,in their selfish nature now overlook those neighbour’s children seen smoking cannabis, indulging in hard drugs and other vices , forgetting that they are like time bomb waiting to detonate, they have forgotten that those children they careless about will be the same to make their life’s unbearable, attack their children and their wealth .
The cleric while charging religious clerics generally irrespective of faith to help in reawakening the consciousness of Nigerians to the importance of the our social norms , ethics and cultural values to the country’s unity and peace , urge Nigeria’s to see the next person as their family , so that we can help salvage our dear country Nigeria.
