The Anglican Bishop of Wusasa Diocese in Zaria, Kaduna State, the Rt. Rev. Ali Buba-Lamido, yesterday advocated the death penalty for corrupt public office holders.
He made the call at the Sixth Synod of the Wusasa Diocese of the Anglican Communion, held in Zaria, Kaduna State, describing the death penalty option as the only way to put public officers in check.
Buba-Lamido said the call became imperative in view of the fact that corruption could kill more people than a conventional weapon.
“If our leaders know that they would be prosecuted if found corrupt they would be on their toes to avoid corrupt practices,” he said.
He appealed to politicians to do all within their power to fulfill their campaign promises with a view to bringing succour to the electorate.
The bishop described the level of unemployment in Nigeria as alarming and urged the new administration to adopt proactive measures to tackle the problem.
Expressing confidence in the ability of the administration, the cleric said he had no doubt that President Muhammdu Buhari would deliver.
On the security situation in the country, the bishop said it was bad for a country like Nigeria to have lost up to 11,000 people to Boko Haram, while he expressed satisfaction at “the approach taken by the new administration to tackle the menace of Boko Haram.”
The synod featured presentation of awards to distinguished Nigerians, comprising Muslims, Christians, politicians and non-politicians.
The awardees included the Emir of Zazzau, Dr Shehu Idris, a former Head of State, Gen. Yakubu Gowon, former Governor of Kaduna State, Sen. Ahmed Makarfi, Gen. Theophilus Danjuma and Rep. Abbas Tajuddeen.
