The president of the United Church of Christ in Nations, popularly called HEKAN, Reverend Amos Kiri, on Sunday lamented that Nigerians are not safe on roads, farms and in their homes due to insecurity.

HEKAN President made the call at the church’s national headquarters in Kaduna, during the ordination service of ten newly promoted Pastors. He called on the Federal Government to rise against people hiding under religion to cause instability in the country, urging the  government to be more proactive in bringing those aiding criminals to justice.

Reverend Kiri lauded  President Muhammadu Buhari-led administration for its continued strides in restoring the good reputation of the country.

“Nigerians are no longer safe on their farms, on the roads and even in their homes due to kidnapping, armed robbery and banditry. The government of the day needs to intensify its actions in curbing this menace.

“Today, Nigerians are not safe in their farms, on the roads and even in their homes. The government must therefore be proactive in bringing those aiding, abetting or physically participating in these heinous crimes to book. The law must be allowed to take its just cause. Most of the perpetrators of these crimes hide under religion to carry out their evil plans.” he said.

On Jukun/Tiv crisis in Taraba and Benue states, the HEKAN President  called on all leaders in the two states to eschew bitterness, bury their hatchet and allow peace to reign.

“May I also extend this call to other states/communities where clashes still occur to as a matter of urgency, dialogue together and seek for lasting solutions to causes of these crises. Without peace, there will be no development,” he said.

Reverend Kiri reminded the new pastors  of their roles in church development and nation building calling on them to exhibit more maturity in handling church affairs. (Daily Trust)
