The President of the Catholic Bishops Conference of Nigeria, Archbishop Ignatius Kaigama, decried what they called a defective education system in the country.
He said that Nigeria can only have a future when the people are well educated.
They called on government to support in the building of places of worship in schools, where there is none.
The aim is to promote moral education and spiritual growth of Nigerian citizens especially in federal schools in the north.
The Catholic bishops also said that they need to be brought on board in the settlement of the internally displaced persons in the country.
Their demand has reference to terms of resettlement and reconstruction.
The Catholic bishops said they were committed to the unity of Nigeria pledging 100% support to President Buhari in the fight against corruption.
