President of the Church of Christ In Nations, COCIN, Rev Dachollom Datiri has called on President Muhammadu Buhari not to abandon the report of the National Conference held last year.
Addressing newsmen yesterday at the 89th General Church Council at the church headquarters in Jos, Datiri lamented that “we have not heard any references to the national conference held last year. It would be a shame to let all those efforts come to nothing. We call on the president and his cabinet to dust the report of that conference and implement it for the progress and development of the nation.
“Government is a continuous process. It is not wise and wasteful to abandon laudable project like this.”
He also said that “we are praying for President Buhari as he fights corruption in the country. As a church we must do everything to see that our relationship with God plays out in making us key players in the fight against corruption, let us make it our goal to be corruption free.
“We as a church are calling on the newly appointed minsters to resolve to be selfless in discharging their duties and in their services to the nation so that they can make this country forward. Nigeria has everything it takes to be a developed country.”
Datiri also condemned in strong terms the barbaric killings of innocent and law abiding Christians in Syria by ISIS, stressing that the war had devastated the nation.
“We call on world leaders to sincerely resolve this issue and bring this reign of terror to an end. “
He also condemned the crisis that has bedevilled Plateau some months ago in some communities in Barkin Ladi Local Government where several persons lost their lives.
“We are thankful to God for the relative peace in the last two weeks in the state. Our troops are doing their best in the North-East, (so) we commend the federal government for this and pray that this reign of terror will come to an end.
“Our hearts also go out to those who lost their relations in the attacks in Paris in the past week. These dastardly acts portray cowardice and man’s terrible wickedness. We condemn this in strong terms and call on governments all over the world to unite to stamp out terrorism.”
