Primate Church of Nigeria Anglican Communion, Most Reverend Henry Ndukuba has called on the Federal Government to urgently come up with programs to cushion the effects of the hike in the petrol and electricity trarrif on citizens.
Addressing the 13th General Synod of the Church in Abuja, Archbishop Ndukuba said the hike would worsen the economic hardship on Nigerians and increase the poverty level in the country.
While lamenting the negative effects of covid 19 on the citizenry, Archbishop Ndukuba expressed regret that most of the small and medium scale enterprises had collapsed and many more Nigerians had lost their jobs.
On national security, the Anglican Primate stressed the need for Government to accord priority to community policing and support regional security organizations to strengthen security architecture at the local levels.
Archbishop Ndukuba however appealed to the church not to allow the present challenges in the country hamper the spread of the gospel and the love for the country.
165 Anglican Bishops and over 500 delegates across the country are attending the synod with the theme” Priority of God”.
