Akinola made us proud as a Nigeria.

* Akinola called the bluff of US Gov few years ago when he stood his ground that Nigeria
   Anglican/entire Africa will not support Gay marriage /female Bishop. They refused him visa but told
   them off

* Akinola wants govt to bluff West on anti-gay law

A NATION with abundant human, natural and mineral resources like Nigeria does not need any foreign aid to succeed but “leaders who are passionately and unashamedly patriotic” about the country, the former Primate of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Most Rev. Peter Akinola, has said.

To that end, he urged the Federal Government to call the bluff of American and European countries that threatened to withdraw their aid to Nigeria following its signing into law the anti-gay bill. Noting that they are entitled to their foolhardiness, he stressed: “What they lack is the right to drag us by the nose to follow that misguided path.”

 The cleric, who spoke yesterday in Abeokuta, Ogun State, on “Anti-Gay Law: Who Needs Foreign Aides?” during a lecture organised by the Chapel of Christ the Glorious King to mark its fifth anniversary, insisted that “Nigeria has only exercised her sacred duty safeguarding the interests of her people and this is the hallmark of sovereignty.”

While noting that the United States (U.S.), Britain, Canada and other Western countries went too far with their threats, he queried: “If not shameless political arrogance at its correct interpretation, does it (withdrawal of aids) not sound like a cheap blackmail in the least?”

He stressed that no individual or country has the right to force a sovereign nation to act against its wish, adding that Nigeria’s situation is not so bad as to force it to either drink hemlock as is being ordered, “or else we have no choice but to perish.”

According to him, without foreign aids, Nigeria will not be doomed. Noting that the economy was buoyant between the 1960s and 1970s because of “patriotic leadership,” he lamented that, “unfortunately, our fault has remained the inability of leadership in their succeeding generations to sustain the beginnings.”

 “By the 1980s, our back was on the wall with the Structural Adjustment Programme (SAP) along with other bitter pills,” he recalled. “It (SAP) was what threw the ‘foreign aid’ lexicon into our development vocabulary.”

The cleric regretted that the so-called foreign aid had become both a weapon and tool of international diplomacy, but “rather than help countries to cushion economic shocks, aids can become an additional source of instability.

“A country gets hooked to it, it becomes an addiction and without knowing it, the unsuspecting poor country is exposed to the risks associated with being a beggarly nation.”
  Nevertheless, Akinola regretted the huge sums of money lost to theft and others spent on frivolous projects. According to him, until Nigerians take their destiny into their hands by challenging bad leadership, the country would remain in the woods.

 He further lamented that politicians are not concerned about how to improve the lot of the people but how to acquire more wealth and power. Therefore, he suggested that to get out of the woods, the country should “declare total war on corruption and have passionate and unashamedly patriotic leaders.”

Others are to sincerely terminate deliberate miscalculations, misappropriations, misuse and mismanagement of the country’s common fund, deal ruthlessly with saboteurs of the economy, and stop paying lip service to agriculture but give the sector priority in terms of development.
