Urges Nigerians to vote for man of integrity as president in 2023
• Asks Christians to participate actively in polls

The African Church has urged President Muhammadu Buhari and the military to renew their commitment and efforts in dealing with security challenges bedeviling the country.

Primate of the church, His Eminence, Dr. Emmanuel Josiah Udofia, gave the charge, yesterday, at a media briefing to mark the beginning of the fourth biennial conference (the 121st conference) of The African Church, which held at Ebenezer Cathedral, Anfani Layout, Ring Road, Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.

Udofia, who spoke on the theme, “Redeeming The Time,” said the conference had been prayerfully and carefully taken to re-awake everyone.

He expressed worry over the spate of various forms of security threats in the country, saying that security agents should be well-equipped and properly funded to tackle internal challenges.

The cleric, who doubles as the President of the conference, said: “The security situation of Nigeria as of today is worrisome. Movement from one part of the country to another becomes dangerous with series of attacks, kidnappings, bombings and gruesome murder in various quarters. While acknowledging government’s efforts at curbing these dastard and inhumane actions, the Federal Government and the military should renew their commitment to severely dealing with these disgruntle elements parading themselves in any form. Security agents should be well-equipped and properly funded to tackle the internal challenges in the nation.”

The primate, therefore, urged Nigerians to vote for a man of integrity to become Nigeria’s President.

He also charged Christians to participate actively in the forthcoming polls, adding that there is nothing wrong in setting up a Directorate of Politics by churches.
