The Evangelical Church Winning All ECWA has raised concerns over the attacks on communities in parts of the Country.
In a Communiqué at the end of its 67th General Church Council Meeting held in Jos Plateau State, the Church said no one has the right to take another’s life hence the need to respect the sanctity of life.
The Communiqué which was signed by the ECWA President, Reverend Stephen Panya- Baba and General Secretary Reverend Yunusa Nmadu, expressed regret over the devastating effect of the COVID 19 pandemic but appealed to Government to allow for the immediate opening of Worship places in compliance with safety guidelines.
It notes with concern the disclosure of reckless looting of public funds while public infrastructure and basic amenities lie in ruins and called on Government to ensure accountability, prudence and transparency in management of the Nation’s resources.
ECWA also frowns at the wave of hostilities against Nigerians and Africans in the diaspora who have continued to suffer racial discrimination at a time the world is assumed to have attained its peak in civilization, where respect for humanity is at the fore and not color.
The Church reiterates its resolve to continue to focus on her core mandate of revival, Evangelism and missions as well as training of qualified people with the fear of God in her various institutions.
It also approves the creation of two additional District Church Councils in Kaduna and Bauchi States.
The Meeting had in attendance ECWA executive members, Board of trustees, Chairmen, Secretaries and delegates of all the 86 District Church Councils among others.
