Anglican cleric condemns proposed amnesty for Boko Haram

From Nigeria-

The cleric also bemoaned government’s helplessness as vices take over polity.

An Anglican Communion clergy, Godwin Daramola, has condemned the Nigerian government for its inability to prevent many woes befalling the nation.

Mr. Daramola, who delivered the sermon at the 10th year remembrance service held in honour of Atinuke Ige, late wife of the slain Governor of the old Oyo State and former Attorney-General of the Federation, Bola Ige, at the St. Anne’s Church, Molete, Ibadan on Wednesday, identified some of the social ills defying government’s efforts as corruption, insecurity, materialism and selfishness.

He condemned the government’s attempt to consider amnesty for the dreaded Boko Haram, wondering if that would ensure justice in the issues on ground.

Despite the mass-killing of innocent Nigerians in the Northern parts of the country, some Northern leaders had persuaded the Federal government to consider granting amnesty to members of the group earlier described by President Goodluck Jonathan as ghosts.
