- The cleric raises concerns over the dishonesty in government, noting that Nigeria as a nation had abandoned God
A group of Christian leaders in the north under the auspices of Nothern States Christian Elders Forum (NOSCEF), have asked President Muhammadu Buhari to present the missing Dapchi schoolgirl, Leah Sharibu to them as Christmas gift.
Ejoga Inalegwu, the chairman of the NOSCEF, in a statement on Sunday, December 22, said the federal government had the capacity to secure the release of Sharibu who has been in Boko Haram custody since 2018 The Nation reports.
“We plead with the President, Muhammadu Buhari, to give the Christian community of this great nation, the Christmas gift by ensuring the release of our dear child Leah Sharibu from the brutal custody of the Boko Haram” the group said.
The Christian organisation raised concerns over the dishonesty in government, noting that Nigeria as a nation had abandoned God and every godly value.
The chairman of the group also complained about the lack of credibility and violence that now characterise the Nigerian electoral system.
He noted that Christians in the north were facing injustice and discrimination because of their faith.
“Let the nation cry out against this injustice. The injustice/discrimination that Christians suffer as a way of life, in the north in all spheres, even Christians from educationally disadvantaged states of Kebbi, Zamfara, Katsina and other Northern states are denied their state quota admission to read courses of their choice, inspite of their performance, because of their faith," Inalegwu.
The cleric urged Nigerians to pray for God to bring hope and righteousness to the state of despair and hopelessness in the nation.
Meanwhile, the terrorist group, Boko Haram could carry out chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive (CBRNE) attacks in the future, the federal government says.
According to The Cable, this is contained in the 60-page document, entitled “National Security Strategy”, earlier released by the office of Babagana Monguno, national security adviser (NSA).
According to the news outlet, the document emphasised the need for increased collaboration among security agencies to combat security threats in the country.
