ECWA Advises Buhari To Be Sensitive To Religious, Regional Diversity

The president of the Evangelical Church Wining All (ECWA), Reverend Jeremiah Gado, has advised President Muhammad Buhari to be sensitive to the religious and regional diversity of the country.

He also advised him to rejig especially the appointment of security chiefs and other political appointments to reflect unity.

Addressing newsmen in Jos, Plateau State, Reverend Gado frowned at the way the crisis in the southern part of Kaduna State was being handled by the federal and state government, urging the security agencies in to discharge their duties.

“It is a calculated and sponsored plan to wipe out natives, who are mostly Christians in Southern Kaduna, from their ancestral lands. Most of the communities attacked never had any misunderstanding with the Fulanis in the past,” he said.

The clergyman explained that the  primary responsibility of the government, as enshrined in the constitution, was the protection of lives and properties of citizens, irrespective of ethnic or religious persuasion, adding that any breach of this fundamental social contract contravened the reason for which the contract was made.

“Unfortunately, our government has failed woefully. If anything, government has shown outright partisanship in favour of herdsmen to the disappointment of Christians in Nigeria.

“These attacks are still going on, despite the presence of security agents, as only a few days ago, herdsmen attacked traders in Samaru Kataf market in Zangon Kataf Local Government Area in broad day light, killing four persons and injuring three,” he claimed.
