At remembrance, cleric tasks Buhari on security, unity



President, Christian Welfare Initiative (CWI), Archbishop Awofe Fadeyi has urged the Church to continue praying for the country to overcome the high level of insecurity in the land, as well as the unstable economy.

At the one year remembrance of the former Chairman, Christian Association of Nigeria for Southwest and first President of CWI, the late Archbishop Magnus Atilade in Lagos, Fadeyi, who also doubles as President, Association of Bishops and Church Leaders in Nigeria, said with the emergence of several security outfits, including Amotekun in the Southwest, it was clear that the Federal Government was not in control of security situation in the country.

He called on President Buhari to eschew sentiment and fight insecurity with everything at his disposal.


Fadeyi described the late Atilade as a selfless Christian leader, who used his money, time and energy to enrich other people and as such, left a good legacy for coming generations.

Archbishop Rufus Adeyeye Oguntuwase of Comforter Gospel Assembly World Outreach Missions, Lagos, who preached at the event, also described Atilade as the epitome of wisdom, a man of tenacity who stood for the unity of Christians and was always ready to face challenges in the kingdom. He said he would always be remembered for his fatherly advice.

Atilade’s first daughter, Femi, acknowledged her father’s positive impact in her life, promising to keep the values and legacies he left behind. Corroborating her sister, the son, Adepemi, said their father’s ideals would be upheld.
