- Christian leaders are optimistic of Nigeria's future
- They expressed believe that Nigeria would outlive her present challenges
- Meanwhile, the federal government has been urged not to compromise the ethics that guide credible electoral process
The chairman, Southern Kaduna Christian Leader’s Forum, Rev Simon Mutum, has expressed confidence that Nigeria would outlive her present challenges.
Mutum spoke on Saturday at the 19th annual Southern Kaduna Prayer Summit held at the Township Stadium in Kafanchan, Jema’a Local Government Area of Kaduna State.
The clergy stated that there was still hope for the nation contrary to perceived fears prior to the 2019 General Elections.
He said: “Many people did not expect Kaduna and by extension, Nigeria to pull through with the aftermath of the general elections but God in His infinite mercies has shown His might and supremacy again’’.
He said that the 2020 Prayer Summit with the theme, “Going Forward,’’ was an intentional bold step to proclaim to the people the need to make progress in the midst of economic, political, spiritual and cultural obstacles.
“Therefore, rather than bewail our misfortunes, we should acknowledge all that God has done and is doing in our midst and move forward.
“Instances to affirm this testament on “Going Forward,’’ are chronicled in the gracious lifting of our sons and daughters across board in the nation and beyond,’’ Mutum said.
He urged the government not to compromise the ethics that guide credible electoral process, adding, “we affirm that a level playing ground be allowed for all players.
“Unless and until the electoral process are critically looked into and addressed, we may never conduct just, fair and credible elections in Nigeria,’’ Mutumi said.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that the Muslim Rights Concern claimed that Christians in Nigeria enjoy more holidays than Muslims in the country.
MURIC said this in a statement released on Friday, December 3, by its director, Ishaq Akintola.
This was in reaction to an earlier claim by the Christian Association of Nigeria that Christians were being persecuted in the country.
