The constant refusal of Nigerians to speak out especially in the areas of security, nation-building and other related issues, have been identified as the major reasons why the country has continued to dwindle.

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) chairman in Taraba State Rev. Isaiah Magaji Jirapye, who made the observations said the silence of good people in the country is the reason why things have continued to fall apart.

He also expressed sadness at the manner Nigerians have been divided along ethnic and religious lines, describing it as hypocrisy in the approach to issues concerning the country.

He lamented that the irregularities and leadership problems in Nigeria are because good people have refused to vote and speak out.

“if good people keep silent, bad things will continue to happen,” he said.

The state CAN boss urged all and sundry to endeavour to speak out as that will catapult the country to the peak.

Also faulting the religious bodies for the woes of the country, the CAN leader said the nation would have long overcome its present predicament if they dish out the right messages from their various worship centres.

“Why we are also not getting what we are looking for is because most of the preaching is not done sincerely. We do much of hypocrisy than sincerity.

He claimed that leadership is a major determinant of how far a country can go and what will become of its people, saying the need for all hands to be on deck to move the country forward can not be overemphasized.

”What we need to do differently is to act with sincerity, when we speak, lets us back it up with sincerity”.

He appealed to Nigerians to accept others from other parts of the country, stressing that there is no reason for the country to be divided ”because we are not all from the same tribe.”
