The Catholic Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Matthew Kukah, on Thursday lamented that Nigerians were yet to forgive themselves 51 years after the civil war.
He also said that the wounds of the Nigerian Civil War also known as Biafran War had not healed.
Kukah spoke during the virtual second edition of the ‘Never Again Conference’ to mark 51 years after the civil war.
He regretted that the foundation laid by the military after the war for a process of rebuilding the nation ended up in futility.
“I have met a lot of people who fought the war who are full of regrets. There is a lot of resentment, anxiety and frustration that we have not learnt any lessons.
“Fifty-one years after the war, we are still hearing the kind of agitations that ordinarily, with commitment, dedication, focus and the right leadership, we should have put a lot of the anxieties behind us. Unfortunately, they are still with us,” he said.
