According to him, people were not happy in the country because they lacked exemplary leadership qualities among political elites.
Madu said this yesterday while delivering a homily at the service of songs held for late former Vice-President, Dr Alex Ekwueme, at the Cathedral Church of the Good Shepherd, Independence Layout in Enugu.
He, however, urged leaders in the country to lead with the fear of God by showing exemplary qualities at all times.
He said: “why people are not happy in the country is due to lack of exemplary leadership qualities among leaders.
“We will continue to pray for God’s intervention to give us leaders with impeccable character as well as men and women with forthrightness.”
The archbishop, however, urged Nigerians to learn to live without giving or taking bribe as exhibited by the late Ekwueme.
“While Ekwueme was in power and out of power as well as wield a lot of political clout, he did not forget to attend church services and draw near to God.
“He was a very courageous man that led the progressives in G-34 to confront the late Gen. Sani Abacha to demand that Nigeria transit from military to civil rule,’’ he said.
Dignitaries that attended the service included Gov. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State; Speaker of Enugu State House of Assembly, Chief Edward Ubosi and President of Ohaneze Ndigbo Worldwide, Chief Nnia Nwodo.
Others are former Minister of Power, Prof. Barth Nnaji; former Secretary to Anambra State Government, Chief Oseloka Obaze; President, Nigeria Institute of Architects, Dr Adibe Njoku and Retired Justice Eugene Ubaezonu of the Court of Appeal.
