Step up military might against insurgency in Northeast, cleric urges FG
Vice President, Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria (PFN), Bishop Francis Wale Oke has challenged the Federal Government to redouble its military might against the scourge of insurgency in the Northeast.
Speaking, yesterday, at the Strongtower Evangelical Assembly, Kano, Oke regretted the negative impact of insurgency on the region. Oke acknowledged government’s efforts in fighting against insecurity but insisted the administration must prevent its escalation to other parts of the country.
Oke, who was in Kano to officiate the consecration of Apostle Ralph Olowo as Bishop of Strongtower Evangelical Assembly, Kano, urged the government to promote peaceful atmosphere that could guarantee economic growth and development.
“The leadership of Nigeria should take care of insurgency that is spreading from the Northeast. There is an insurgency in the North, kidnapping and cattle rustlers in other parts of the country. We are not saying the government is not doing anything but we want them to step up efforts to flush out Boko Haram from the Northeast.
He tasked the newly-crown bishop to preach Godly principles of love, and peace adding that he must serve God and humanity diligently and selflessly.Olowo pledged to dedicate his new responsibility to serving humanity and the society while promising to expand the scope of his mission beyond church, embracing people regardless of tribe, ethnic and religious background.
