From Julius B. Kezi, Kafanchan
The Catholic Bishop of Kafanchan Diocese, The Most Rev. Dr Joseph Danladi Bagobiri has called on Nigerians to take it as a divine injunction to unite as one for the sustenance of the Nigerian Nation, by remaining firm on the path of promoting liberal democracy, to ensure peace, National integration and prosperity.
Bishop Bagobiri made the call Monday in his diocesan office, Madakiya, Zangon Kataf Local Government, while fielding questions from journalists who went to inquire about preparations for the 2016 Annual Prayer Summit.
Glorifying God for the existence of the Nigerian nation, the cleric said unlike some countries which were excised from others, God gathered races together and amalgamated them into one Nigeria, with a lot of human and material resources, good weather and beautiful cultures, which must be tapped for the survival, peace and prosperity of all.
He disclosed that the 2016 Annual Prayer Summit with the theme “When The Son Of Man Comes, Will He Find Faith On Earth?” taken from Luke 18:8, would hold next Saturday at the St. Peter Claver Catholic Cathedral Kafanchan by 10 in the morning
Bishop Bagobiri, who chairs the Southern Kaduna Christian Elders Forum, organisers of the Summit, said “this annual Prayers is unique and ecumenical in nature, strictly dedicated to fervent prayers and fasting for the land, and its people, Kaduna State, the country, democracy, and all strata of leadership, the civil service, security agencies and prosperity of economy and against all challenges of corruption, insurgencies, and all forms of idolatry and social vices.”
He said the summit would be graced by prominent religious, traditional, political and community leaders from within and outside Kaduna State.
The Bishop implored on sons and daughters of Southern Kaduna to make it a divine responsibility to pray, fast, contribute and attend the summit.
