Bishop enjoins media to salvage South East from marginalisation, injustice
The Archbishop, Province of the Niger Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Most Rev. Alexander Ibezim, has appealed to the media to help salvage Nigeria, especially the South East geopolitical zone from marginalisation and injustice.
Ibezim, who is also the Bishop of Awka Diocese stated that recently when the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Anambra State Chapter, paid him a courtesy call at Awka, the state capital. He noted that the region needed healing from untold hardship bedevilling its people due to marginalisation and bad governance.
The cleric said that journalists ought to utilise their media to salvage Nigeria from hardship, corruption, economic meltdown and maladministration by projecting credible people for Nigerians to make right choice in 2023 general elections.
He said: “It is high time for you journalists to use your reports to salvage Nigeria from injustice and to allow peace to reign. Nigeria needs a message of healing. You need to help to salvage South East from the problem of marginalisation in the region. For instance, you can see that all institutions are shutdown today due to every Monday sit-at-home. This unhappiness must not continue. People are no longer happy.”
