Anglican Communion seeks Sovereign National Conference to proffer solutions
The Church of Nigeria (Anglican communion) has called on the Federal Government to urgently organise a Sovereign National Conference of all ethnic nationalities, groups and regions to address issues threatening the country’s corporate existence. The church expressed concern over the current state of insecurity, destruction of public facilities and agitations, noting that the conference would bring together political, traditional and other opinion leaders to proffer amicable resolutions for building a strong and safe nation.
At the opening of this year’s Abuja Diocesan Synod at the Cathedral Church of Advent Life Camp Abuja, Primate of the church, Most Rev. Henry Ndukuba stressed the need for state governments to deploy all means in securing their states and place national interests above personal ambition. He noted that the country’s unity is not negotiable and must be defended, adding that the Federal Government should allow state police force to check criminal activities at local levels.
Ndukuba commended the new style adopted by leadership of the National Drug Law and Enforcement Agency in the fight against illicit drugs, and called for collective efforts in making the fight a success.
According to Ndukuba, the speed and desperation at which some Nigerians are getting involved in hard drugs is alarming, and the country is becoming a strong hub for hard drugs; hence the need for authorities to stop the menace.
Over 500 delegates from the Six Deaneries of Abuja Diocese attended the Synod with the theme: “Planted by the waters: The beauty of walking with God.”
