Quotes

"The Lagos State Government and others who have not granted hijab usage in their states or institutions should do that if we are truly an independent country with maximum freedom to rule ourselves. As an independent country, we should not limit the freedom of worshippers of a particular religion for another. We must promote equality and recognise individual differences" he added
The Episcopal Church in 1982 affirmed its belief in "the glorious ability of God to create in any manner," and expressed its support "of the scientists, educators, and theologians in the search for truth in this creation that God has given and entrusted to us."
"As we celebrate the 54th year of independence of Nigeria today, I enjoin you Christians and the government and good people of Kaduna State to pray for peace in our hearts, homes, Kaduna State and our country Nigeria. There can be no peace among the people unless there is peace" , he said
