St. Valentine’s Day: Nigerian Leaders should imitate God - Rev. Martins

Catholic Archbishop of the Metropolitan See of Lagos, His Most Rev. Alfred Adewale Martins has tasked leaders and all Nigerians to imitate God through love, as they celebrate St. Valentine’s Day.


Martins, who was represented by the Dean, Ikeja Deanry, Very Rev. Father Patrick Obayomi, during a programme tagged Valentine 2021 Day with the Archbishop with the theme: “Love is tested in the midst of adversity,” where 19 couples renewed their marriage vows, at Catholic Church of the Ascension, Ikeja, Lagos, lamented the state of insecurity in the country.

Martins, who condemned Nigerian leaders’ nonchalant attitude, said the country was sitting on a keg of gun powder. He said only love could bind a nation together.

“When leaders fold their arms, simply because their family members are not affected in the ongoing mayhem, it shows they do not love their fellow Nigerians, who voted them into power. When they care less for the people they are supposed to protect, they are not emulating God of love, who created man in His image and in sacrificing His only begotten son,” he said.
