Archbishop Kaigama upbeat about Nigeria’s challenges
Nigeria is Africa’s most densely populated country. About 20 million of a total of approximately 170 million Nigerians are Catholic. Some of the challenges currently facing the country are the terrorist organisation, Boko Haram and corruption. In an interview during a visit to the International Catholic pastoral charity, “Aid To The Church In Need,” Nigeria’s Archbishop of Jos and President of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Nigeria, (CBCN) Ignatius Kaigama, explained that the Church is dealing with the challenges.
Describing the political climate in his country, Archbishop Kaigama said that before the general elections, pessimists were predicting the disintegration of Nigeria.
