Anglican Primate tasks FG on ways out of recession
Speaking at the church’s 2020 Carnival for Christ yesterday, in Abuja, Ndukuba noted that recession at the moment is a global challenge as many other countries are also grasping the problem.
He expressed optimism that if the right policies are implemented and the right steps are taken, God will help the nation’s economy to rebound and Nigeria country will exit the recession.
Ndukuba said: “I believe by God’s grace, we will come out of this. At a time like this, Nigeria must trust in God, do not be afraid because the Lord who has been with us throughout these challenging times will see us through and we will overcome. The theme for this gathering is “Be still and know that I am God,” it is an assurance of God’s presence and helps in terms of trouble, challenges and when there is fear, it is good for us to know that God is with us and he will not leave us or forsake us.
“At a time like this when people face challenges, overwhelming fear, and uncertainty, it is good to lift the spirit of the people, encourage them to hold on and trust in God, we must encourage one another even if it is in a very low key. We are moved by what God can do, and we are urging the people to keep doing what they should do to take care of themselves, care for one another, and stand together.”
Also speaking, Anglican Bishop of Keffi Diocese, Most Rev Edmund Akanya, urged Nigerians not to despair by the happenings in the country but to trust in God and put their confidence in God who cannot fail.
He said: “Whatever is happening around us, whether insecurity, COVID-19 or recession, hunger, it will not overwhelm us. Trust in this God, He will not fail, He is our present help in times of trouble.”
