President Muhammadu Buhari has been charged by the Archbishop of the Kwara Province of the Church of Nigeria, Israel Afolabi Amoo, to act on the security challenges in the country.
Amoo charged President Buhari on the security and the economic challenges in the country at the 22nd provincial meeting held at the Diocese of Jebba, Kwara.
The cleric further stated that the economy of the country is on the brink because of the farmers/herdsmen conflicts, ethnic clashes, banditry and insurgency.
He said, “Matters had now gone from bad to worse. Never in our socio-political history has the shadow of failed nationhood been so palpable.”
Amoo noted that the silence of the President in the face of these issues makes Nigerians feel like some people own the country.
He added, “The skirmishes which we have been seeing in some parts of the South West, involving the indigenes and settler Fulani herdsmen is a pointer that the crisis may fester longer than expected.
“To make matter worse, the silence of President Buhari even in the face of this tragic assault on public peace and constitutional sanity, give the impression that there are people in this country who own Nigeria more than the rest.”
Reflecting on the theme: “Look to Jesus And Live” (Isaiah 45:22), the bishop enjoined all to look unto God for salvation, urging everyone to embrace peace.
