The Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, has urged all those in political power in the country to lead with humility by listening to Godly admonition.
The association said this in its new year message to Nigerians.
It pointed out that the wisdom of those in political power alone may not be enough to reposition the nation, especially, to restore the security and bring about peace and prosperity presently eluding our nation.
The CAN, which is an umbrella body the Christians in the country, noted that the present spate of kidnappings for ransom or death, terrorism, banditry, herdsmen attack, armed robbery and other anti-social activities in our nation are dents on the leadership of our nation.
While acknowledging the fact that leadership is tough, the association said that it sympathizes with those in power, stressing however that Nigerians at the same time expect that leadership would rise more gallantly to address the near horrible socio-economic situation in this nation which is almost crippling us.
In the message signed by its President,
Rev. (Dr.) Samson Olasupo A. Ayokunle, CAN, equally harped on the need for love among Nigerians as well as put an end to cruelty against one another under any guise.
Nigerians, the association said, deserve to have their rest of mind.
The message by the association reads in part, “I urge all those in political power in our nation to lead with humility by listening to Godly admonition because their wisdom alone may not be enough to reposition our nation, especially, to restore our security and bring about peace and prosperity presently eluding our nation.
“The present spate of kidnappings for ransom or death, terrorism, banditry, herdsmen attack, armed robbery and other anti-social activities in our nation are dents on the leadership of our nation.
“Though, we understand that leadership is tough and sympathize with those in power, Nigerians at the same time expect that leadership would rise more gallantly to address our near horrible socio-economic situation in this nation which is almost crippling us.
“Let us love one another and put an end to cruelty against one another under any guise. Nigerians deserve to have their rest of mind.
“I plead with all of us to please observe all the COVID-19 protocols this year. Maintain social distancing, do hand washing or use sanitizer.
“Make sure you always wear your face mask whenever you are out from your house until we all together, under God, wipe away this wicked virus from the face of the earth.
“Avoid frivolous traveling meanwhile and use virtual meetings where possible for your safety”, it said.
