                                 • Bishop Adekunle

From Ayobami Ife, Abeokuta

The Ogun State governor,  Dapo Abiodun jas expressed faith in God that despite the present challenges plaguing the country, "there will be no war in Nigeria."

Abiodun who recalled that he could not have been a governor without his unwavering faith in God, declared further that "there will be peace in the country" despite all odds.

The governor spoke while delovering his goodwill message  at the 3rd session of the 15th synod of the Church of Nigeria, diocese of Egba, Ogun State, urging christians to keep praying for peace, unity and progress of the country.

He commended the christian community for supporting him,  explaining that their prayer did not only ensured his emergence as an elected governor, but also contributed to the re -engineering work being carried out in the State by the administration in the last two years.

Also, the Bishop of Egba diocese, Church of Nigeria(Anglican Communion), Rev. Emmanuel Adekunle, joined the governor in expressing the confidence that  Nigeria will not slide into war situation.

Adekunle, however,  lamented the worsening economy, depreciating public amenities, unhelpful advisers in the presidency, criminal herders ravaging farmlands across the country, banditry, kidnapping and the attendant threats to food security and the glaring mismanagement of the situation by the governments, submitting that the country's situation calls for intercessory prayer.

As a way out of the quagmire, the 
Bishop urged the governments at all levels and their officials to collectively  stand against insurgency and insecurity and not  provide covers for the perpetrators.

He also recommended community policing, neighbourhood policing and vigilante surveillance as agents of security to ensure national safety while massive investment in agriculture should also be undertaken and encouraged by the governments to address food and unemployment crisis in the country.
