Okoh tasks FG on insecurity ahead of 2019 elections
The Primate of All Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Most Rev. Nicholas Okoh, has called on the Federal Government to take proactive steps to address the growing insecurity in the country, ahead of the 2019 general elections.
Speaking after consecrating three new bishops of the church at St. Bartholomew’s Church, Kubwa, Abuja, Okoh insisted government must fulfill its social contract with the people, who voted them into power, to protect their lives and property.
Okoh told the new bishops that Nigeria is in a very critical period in its history, advising them to be careful with politicians and concentrate on their spiritual lives.
Earlier in his sermon, Anglican Archbishop of Lokoja, the Most Rev Emmanuel Egbunu, warned newly consecrated Bishops of the church to guard against “repackaging the gospel”, for selfish and pecuniary interests
Among those consecrated were Bishops Chukwuma Oparah of Owerri Diocese, Godfrey Ekpenisi of Ika Diocese and Jezreel Vandeh of Zaki-Biam Diocese.
