Cleric urges Jonathan To Tackle Insecurity


Rt. Rev. Jonathan Anazodo, the Bishop, Christ True Mission Of Nigeria, Enugu Zone, has urged President Goodluck Jonathan to urgently tackle the current insecurity challenges in the country.

Anazodo made the call on Sunday in Nsukka during a thanksgiving service of Rev. Patrick Ugwueze, the father of Mr Emma Ugwueze, the state correspondent of the Moment Newspapers, Enugu.

He described recent bomb blasts by Boko Haram in Yobe State as unfortunate and urged the President to tackle insecurity in the country in order not to lose the confidence of Nigerians.

“The President should brace up to the challenges so as not lose people’s confidence in his administration.

“The number of deaths and properties that have been lost in Nigeria recently to Boko Haram’s bomb attacks are over-whelming.

“It needs a sober reflection from all Nigerians, especially elected leaders. Christians should continue praying in order to get God’s intervention to save the country from gangs up of evil men.

“It is very sad that people now live in fear everyday in most parts of this country.”

He urged the federal and state governments to explore all avenues, including dialogue, towards ending the Boko Haram scourge.

“Nigerians should de-emphasise their differences and stress more things that will bind the country together.

On the controversial proposal of fuel subsidy removal, Anazodo urged the Federal Government to have a rethink.

He said: “The government should not take a hasty decision that will further impoverish the poor masses.”

In a remark, Ugwueze, The Moment Newspaper Correspondent, said the thanksgiving service was to appreciate God for his favour and protection to his family.

“We are thanking God for giving our father the grace to work in his vineyard as a priest.

“God also granted his children the favour to excel in their different areas of endeavours.’’
