The Synod observed with utmost concern the persistent state of insecurity in the country, unprovoked attacks, kidnapping, killings by armed bandits and urged the Federal Government to tackle insecurity, as well as address the prevailing inflation in the country.
It also decried the huge wastages in running elections in the country and advised the Federal Government to adopt e-voting to reduce high cost, high incidence of electoral malpractices and violence.
