Pentecostal Bishops send message to the Nigerian government

The association urged the government and the country's political leaders to rise up to the challenge; in order to prevent the country from drifting further into a perilous state.

It says that Nigeria has sadly become one of the most terrorized states, which, according to them, caused majority of its citizens to lose faith in the country and its government.

It called on the government to rise up to the occasion by recognizing the urgent need to rejig the country's security architecture, to protect its citizens.

"It is no longer safe to travel to any part of the country. It is equally no longer safe at home, schools, hospitals, markets and work places.
