The Interfaith Dialogue Forum for Peace has called on policy makers and religious leaders to urgently come up with workable solutions to address the current state of insecurity and effects of the COVID-19 pandemic in the country.
The Co Chairman of the Forum, Bishop Sunday Onuoha who made the call at a stakeholders meeting in Abuja decried the increasing cases of killings, kidnappings and crimes threatening National unity and development.
While reiterating the support of the Forum to Government programs, Bishop Onuoha appealed to political office holders drop their 2023 political ambitions and concentrate more on initiatives that would move the Country forward.
Also, another co chairman Alhaji Ishaq Kunle-Sani maintained that the present security situation across the country whereby farmers could no longer engage in agricultural activities could lead to food insecurity and increase poverty.
