Share This

Churches and religious bodies have been enjoined to intensify prayers and preaching of words of God, in order to reduce the prevailing insecurity in parts of the country.
President of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) , Rev. Dr. Samson Ayokunle, made the call in Abuja, during the dedication of First Baptist Church, Garki-Abuja building and the 20th year appreciation of pastor of the church, Rev Dr Israel Akanji.
Ayokunle, who is also the president of Nigerian Baptist Convention, stated that the increasing cases of banditry, criminality and insecurity in the country are an opportunity for more Nigerians to listen to the words of God more than ever before.
He noted that churches and religious bodies have reduced the rate of insecurity in the society, adding that if not for the words of God, Nigerians would have been seeing more people committing suicide on the streets.
“Churches and religious bodies have reduced insecurity in the Nigerian society, because if not for the words of God, Nigerians will see more people committing suicide on the streets.
“And if we don’t have the number of churches we have today, preaching the words of God, we might be picking dead bodies on the streets, than we are experiencing today and the crime rate would have increased the more.”
Also speaking, the pastor of the church, Rev Dr Israel Akanji, called on leaders in the country to be altruistic and sacrificial in their dealings, for the common good of all, adding that the masses expect more from them.
Akanji advised the present leadership in the country to have plans for the future of the present generation, so that they can be grateful to our lives.
“My advice to the country is that our leaders, who have been doing their best. They should still do more.
“The nation expects more from them. We are praying for more opportunities for our youths to have employment. We are praying that those who are sick get good healthcare, affordably,” he stressed.
