Cleric backs state police, seeks peaceful coexistence
The Senior Pastor of The Evidence Church, Mushin, Lagos, Paul Adeniyi has expressed satisfaction with the Federal Government’s decision to introduce state police,even as he recommends peaceful coexistence among all ethnic and religious groups in the country.
In a chat with The Guardian in Lagos, the cleric also voiced concern over continued spate of killings in the country. He urged Nigerians to rise to the challenges currently bedeviling the nation and halt spate of killings across the country.
Adeniyi said: “I am very reluctant to point accusing finger at any individual or any dispensation of government, either the Jonathan administration or the first tenure of President Muhammadu Buhari. I will rather speak to Nigerians because I believe the time has come for all of us to rise to the challenge facing the nation. Am just praying that we do not wake up one day as a nation and realise that we have lost everything.”
The cleric enjoined the government not to be too quick to score political points by making public declaration that they have eradicated Boko Haram.
“They should speak less and allow natural testimony to speak. Let the nation just wake up to realise there is no more kidnapping, no more bomb blast,” he said.
