A conglomerate of Fellowship of Churches of Christ in Nigeria, known as TEKAN, has called on the Federal Government and the Academic Staff Union of Universities, ASUU to resolve their issues and allow Students to resume School.
In a statement in Jos, signed by its General Secretary, Reverend Moses Ebuga on the State of the Nation, the Church said this will take the Youths off the Streets, thereby reducing the tendency of being involved in ungodly acts.
While condemning the looting and destruction of public and private property that took place in parts of the Country, the Church noted that the issues raised by the ENDSARS protesters should not be swept under the carpet.
It called on Political leaders to be sensitive to events of the times and not allow sectional and parochial interest to overtake them, as Nigerians expect them to deal constructively with the challenges identified by the protesters.
The church also wants Government to rise up to its Constitutional responsibilities of protecting lives and property and called for an end to the insecurity in Borno, Kaduna, Nassarawa, Plateau and Benue States.
They commended the steps taken by the present administration to ameliorate the sufferings of its citizens through carefully thought out schemes and programs.
It urged Nigerians to be law abiding, stay on course and be committed to God, adding that TEKAN would continue to pray with Strength, speak with compassion and wisdom.
