Listen to article

BEVERLY HILLS, September 12, (THEWILL) –  The Archbishop of the Jos Ecclesiastical Province and Bishop of Maiduguri Diocese of the Anglican Communion, Bishop Emmanuel Kana Mani, has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to reinstate the War Against Indiscipline (WAI) programme, which he launched during his reign as military head of state in the 80s.

In a statement Saturday commemorating his 25 years as a Bishop in Maiduguri, Bishop Mani said the President should intensify his fight against corruption, assuring him of prayers and support of Nigerians.

“War Against Indiscipline (WAI), against corruption must be fought by all. The ‘sacred cow’ syndrome must be totally eliminated. Nobody is above the law, therefore, let President Muhammadu Buhari, intensify his fight against corruption while we assure the President of our prayers and support…”

“The degree of lawlessness in Nigeria is very high, thereby making our laws and codes of behavior a mere paper work, which has never seen the light of the day,” the clergyman wrote.

President Buhari, who assumed office on May 29, won the election because of his strong record against graft and indiscipline, has so far moved to plug leakages in nation's treasury.
