Primate of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), His Grace, Most Rev. Henry Ndukuba has commended members of the Evangelical Fellowship in the Anglican Communion (EFAC) for their belief in the efficacy of prayers, expressing optimism that Nigeria would overcome its numerous problems.

Ndukuba, who addressed the 2022 EFAC National Convention held at the Paul University field, Awka, Anambra State, recently, said that the convention came at the right time when Nigeria is in serious crisis and called on the faithful to pray ceaselessly to save the country from kidnappings, political killings and other crimes.

The National Chairman of the group and Bishop of Aguata Diocese, Anambra State, Rt. Rev. Samuel Chukwudi Ezeofor who expressed dismay at the level of insecurity in the country asked the participants to pray for the nation and make disciples among men.

“The Lord is renewing His kingdom mandate with us in focus. We are, therefore, called to first become disciples of Jesus Christ and disciple-making missioners in the mission fields around us, beginning from our homes,” he said.

The presidential candidate of the Labour Party (LP), Mr. Peter Obi, who graced the event, enjoined the members and Nigerians to focus their prayers on how to make Nigeria great again.

The group’s Zonal Chaplain and host, Ven. David Ezeobi explained that the convention was to spur men of God to pray for a better society, noting that about 15,000 people registered for the convention, but only about 9,000 could attend it for security issues.

Over 15 Archbishops and Bishops attended the programme that drew participants from the 36 states of the country including the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja.
