From Esther Akaa, Lafia
Nigerians have been urged always contribute to the development of the nation by working for the peace and mutual coexistence of all.
A clergy, Apostle Theophilus Ebonyi stated this while speaking with journalists on the state of the nation last Friday in Nyanya Gwandara, Karu Local Government of Nasarawa State.
He said swift and non-violent conflict resolution mechanism will help to reduce eminent wars, insurgencies, armed banditry and other conflicts that may endanger peaceful coexistence of the people.
Apostle Ebonyi disclosed that in spite of president Buhari’s effort to grow the economy, his hands will be swept off the track by the evil forces around him, saying the only weapon left for him to succeed is prayers.
The cleric therefore called on Nigerians to support the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari and prayed for the security agencies to avert the challenges ahead of them.
He who regretted the attitude of other religious leaders towards crimes and criminality in the country, said rather than the people in the altar being a shining example to the congregation, they have become a conduit pipe, indulging in acquisition of powers to perform miracles.
“What I have seen, no power can do that. The people at the Altar have become too familiar with the congregation in the church. Crimes are increasing as a result of pastors iniquities,” the cleric alleged.
He said Nigerians must go back to the fear of God in prayers because the country is surrounded by those with evil intentions and retrogressive minds.
