Church leaders suggest solutions to Nigeria’s security challenges

About 120 church leaders from different denominations in the South East region of the country met on Saturday, March 13. The reason for the meeting was to discuss ways to solve Nigeria’s pending security issues and other challenges in the country. 

According to Premium Times, the church leaders met at a peace summit organized by the Nigerian Christian Pilgrim Commission in Enugu, Enugu State. They demanded a reasonable representation of zones in government, unbiased justice and a better border security. They affirmed that these are the determinants of consistent peace and oneness in the country.

Chairman, Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), South-east, Goddy Okafor, stated that the summit was for a good cause. He also added that the progress of a nation is determined by the level of peace it has. Likewise, he admonished everyone to support the government in the fight against the issues that will negate the peace of the nation.

Bishop of the Methodist Church Circuit, Abia State, Sunday Onuoha, noted that a continuous religious, socio-economical, and political segregation and injustice of a part of the country might cause unrest in the country.

Likewise, the pastor of Living Word Outreach International, Onitsha, Okechukwu Obiora, implored the federal and state governments to put more efforts to engage and empower the youths through skill acquisition. He noted that it will help to curtail the vices going on in the land.

The Executive Secretary of Nigerian Christian Pilgrim Commission, Yakubu Pam, affirmed that with all that was deliberated on, the commission would give the necessary suggestions to President Muhammadu Buhari and he is confident the president will look into them all.
