From Julius B Kezi, Kafanchan
The Catholic Bishop of Kafanchan Diocese Most Rev. Joseph Danlami Bagobiri, has said that Nigeria as a country was in dire need of rebirth.
The Bishop stated this during a prayer Summit organized by the Jema’a Local Government Chapter of Christian Association of Nigeria CAN, held in Kafanchan recently, to commemorate the country’s 57th Independence Anniversary.
Bishop Bagobiri who noted that, the country was in a crisis situation , a sort of cross roads, said the situation portended some dangers on the one hand and great possibilities on the other for many positive changes that will advance the fortunes of the nation.
The cleric however said the crisis situation must not be allowed to deteriorate to the destruction of lives and property.
He said government must set in motion a transparent process of dismantling abuses that have led to disaffection, especially on the basis of religion and ethnicity, to guarantee true integration.
According to him, “the hue and cry for restructuring by Nigerians is legitimate and should be heeded by government which must be done holistically and not selectively, keeping in view the fact that our remaining together as one, united and indivisible nation, grounded on the principles of justice and freedom is non-negotiable”
The Bishop urged Nigerians to have the courage to work assiduously, peacefully and devoid of violence towards the rebirth of Nigeria, stressing that “God has been very gracious to us and therefore, the Prayer Summit offered the singular opportunity to pray fervently for the peace, unity and progress of the country.
Chairman, Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, Jema’a Local Government Chapter, Rev. David Aruwa, in a remark, urged Nigerians to dwell more on factors that unite the country, rather than engaging on divisive tendencies that would tear us apart.
