CWN Editor's Note: Archbishop Augustine Akubeze of Benin City, president of the bishops’ conference, said, “How can we celebrate when many of our people cannot afford to eat? How can we celebrate when we watch daily, the killings of Nigerians by the insurgents? How can we celebrate when Boko Haram is still holding some of the Chibok girls, and Leah Sharibu is still being held captive for over three years because she refuses to denounce Christ?”
