The cleric gave the advice at a press conference commemorating the World Communications Day (WCD) on Friday in Abuja.
Kaigama also urged religious leaders to always weigh their utterances, as they might have grave consequences and reminded them that they swore an oath that they have to live by for the rest of their lives.
He stated that comments made by priest on political matters such as that made by Mbaka were personal opinions and not that of the Catholic Church.
The Archbishop further reminded priests that canon 285 instructs them to refrain completely from all those things which are foreign to the clerical state, adding that they are not allowed to be involved in partisan politics.
He however challenged Government to immediately address the country's rising insecurity, noting that the creation of several security outfits across the country was a result of security deficiency.
"Government must dialogue across political and religious lines to ensure that terrorists are checkmated, criminals rounded up, bandits dismantled, and kidnappers put out of business," he said.
He also urged that youths be involved in matters that affect the country, noting that they must be allowed to shape the future of the country which they will inherit.
