A call has been made on the Federal and state governments in Nigeria to bring to an end the suffering and insecurity in the country.
The call was made by the President of the United Church Of Christ In Nations (UCCN), Rev. (Dr.) Amos G. Kiri gave the advise in his Christmas address delivered on Friday December 25.
“With deep sense of humility and grave concerns about the happenings in our nation (Nigeria), I call on both the Federal and state governments to as a matter of urgency; intervene in the mass suffering and insecurity in the nation.
“While we are battling with COVID-19 and other social vices, life has become unbearable because of the continued shedding of blood of innocent Nigerians. Banditry, Boko Haram, ritual killings and kidnappings has continued to make life unbearable for Nigerians,” he lamented.
While acknowledging that he is aware that the government is trying to curtail these vices, he said that however, there is more room for improvement in the security strategies.
He enjoined all to continue to pray for the country.
“We have no other country than Nigeria. It is therefore our responsibility to come together and make the country a better place to live. Let us think about the future of our children and our grand children,” he charged.
Reverend Kiri warned that if they don’t act now to change the situation the country has found itself, their children will wonder what type of parents they were when these things were going on.
“Let us therefore do our best by joining hands to make Nigeria a better place to live,” he appealed.
