Catholic Archbishop of Abuja, Most Reverend Ignatius Kaigama has called on the Federal Government to adopt new strategies in tackling the rising insecurity in the country.
Bishop Kaigama made the call during the dedication of a newly constructed Catholic Cathedral of Saint Williams in Lafia the Nasarawa State capital.
He pointed out that the increasing cases of insecurity especially Kidnapping in the Federal Capital Territory had become worrisome which according to him, was an indication that nowhere is safe in the country hence the need for decisive steps to check the trend.
While thanking God for the safe release of a Catholic Priest in Abuja who was abducted recently, Bishop Ignatius Kaigama urged perpetrators of criminal activities to repent and make their ways right with God as every soul shall stand for judgment on the last day.
Catholic Archbishop of Jos and Apostolic Administrator, Lafia Diocese, Most Reverend Ishaya Audu stressed the need for Nigerians to remain committed to prayers and love one another regardless of their diversity.
Bishop Audu also enjoined leaders at all levels to imbibe the fear of God and take urgent steps towards addressing unemployment which according to him is inexcusable for Nigerians to go hungry considering the rich resources that abound in the Country.
Saint Williams Cathedral, Lafia Diocese in Nasarawa State was gutted by fire in 2008.
