The Anglican Communion of Nigeria, Kutigi Diocese in Lavun Local Government Area of Niger State, has tasked incoming President, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu to distinguish himself by checkmating the rampant killings, kidnappings and other social vices in the country.
The Bishop of Kutigi Diocese, Rt Rev. Jeremiah Ndana Kolo, stated this while delivering his address of Bishop charge at the third day of yearly Synod held at St Peter’s Anlican Church Gbangbagi in the state.
Kolo, speaking on the theme of this year’s Synod, “the Confidence of Faith and Submission”, decried the rate of kidnappings for ransom, reckless killings and ransacking of villages and towns particularly in Niger State.
“It has become a daily affair without proactive measures to checkmate the menace. It is the primary responsibilities of the government at all levels to get to the root cause of banditry, and militia groups in the country with a view to punish the perpetrators. We believe Tinubu has all it takes to take the country to it’s highest level to secure the lives and properties of the citizens,” he insisted.
The cleric also asked the government to address the increase in petrol pump price of N300 which has further increased the sufferings of the masses, while noting that the recent cashless policy was ill motivated and killer to the economy.
