The Methodist Bishop of Sokoto Diocese, Dr Ishaya Kunama, has advised the federal government on what measures to undertake towards finding a lasting solution to the myraid of social challenges confronting Nigeria. 

Bishop Kunama, who gave the advice during his Convenant Service Homily in Sokoto, contended that until a platform for sincere unification and understanding of each other is created, identifying perpetrators of evil and resolving emerging issue that could result to crisis in time would be impossible. 

Speaking on the theme; “The Christian Convenant of Raising Up to Build and Being Fruitful in 2024” Bishop Kunama said it has become imperative for the government to wake up in today’s rapidly changing world and acknowledge their divine purpose and resolve to build a fruitful future for generations to come. 

And to achieve this atmosphere in Nigeria, the outspoken Bishop Kunama said the federal government should as a matter of urgency establish a dedicated Ministry for Religious and Chieftaincy Affairs. 

Highliting what the ministry would bring to the table, Bishop Kunama said it would help to end insecurity as both the religious and traditional leaders will be tasked with the responsibility of identifying the bad eggs in society. 

The clergyman also noted that if traditional leaders were given such mandate backed by legal framework and policies, they would identify and fish out trouble makers within their jurisdiction.

Bishop Kunama stated: “The stablishment of a dedicated Ministry for Religious and Chieftaincy Affairs in Nigeria will further embodies the government’s commitment to actively promote religious harmony, cultural preservation and sustainable development. 

“By prioritizing the protection of religious rights and fostering interfaith dialogues, Nigeria aims to create an inclusive society that celebrates diversity. Moreover, leveraging the influence of traditional leadership systems and collaborating with religious institutions will provide a solid foundation for social, economic and political progress in Nigeria. 

“‘Thus the proposed Ministry of Religious and Chieftaincy Affairs has the potential to revolutionize governance and enhance Nigeria’s social fabrics, ultimately leading to a bright future for all of us”.
