Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Most Rev?d Matthew Hassan Kukah yesterday disclosed that it is impossible for the federal government to employ more than five per cent of the nation?s population.

The activist priest, who spoke at the opening ceremony of the Third National Mission Congress of Nigeria,
in Abuja, noted that no government in the world provides employment to all its citizens. He urged Nigerians from all walks of life to contribute meaningfully to the development of the
country.

Stressing that, ?There is no country that employs five per cent of its population, or even 10 per cent,? he noted that ?many states in Nigeria with a population of about 6-7 million, employ between 30-60,000 civil servants, including
ghost workers. So, it is clear that no government can employ its entire people.?


He stressed that since nobody was born a government officer or political office holder, Nigerians should to be hard working, adding that it was wrong to assume that one must either be president, governor, and local government chairman before exercising leadership. He stressed that the youth should particularly help in making the nation greater. He said, ?Office holding sometimes is purely by accident, or appointment. For instance, out of 170 million Nigerians, only one can be president at a time.?

?So, the assumption that if you are not holding a public office, you cannot exercise leadership is wrong.

?Even the President cannot turn his son into something without his cooperation. You have heard of some leaders whose children ought to be in prisons as they have been involved in crimes and criminality,? he added.

Also at speaking, a former Attorney-General and Minister of Justice, Kanu Agabi charged participants to always pray for the nation, asserting that Nigeria exists because of the prayers of the people.


He however assured that the patriotic spirit of good spirited Nigerians will continue to protect it from disintegration.
