Ojikutu also highlighted Nigeria’s problem, adding that political sycophancy and ethnic partisans have been hindering the nation from moving forward.
He, however, said that Christians in diaspora are ready to partner with their counterparts in Nigeria to facilitate a good and better Nigeria.
He said: “We in the diaspora are now fully resolved that we can no longer stand by on the sideline and watch our dear country continue to wobble, falter and degenerate into a banana republic of anarchy and rudderless mis-leadership.
“To say Nigeria of today is characterized by the highest level ever of insecurity to life, land and property, is an understatement of the obvious.
“There is unprecedented, rampant and gross ethnic partisanship and sycophancy in the distribution of political power, instrument of national security, as well as in the observance of the rule of law. All these must stop!”
