    Group urges leaders to redouble efforts in tackling insecurity

    The Christian Council of Nigeria (CCN) has urged political leaders to redouble efforts in tackling rising insecurity in the country.

    The Chairman of CCN South-East Zone, Dr Levi Monanu, made the call on Friday in Enugu during a chat with newsmen.

    Monanu called on Nigerian leaders to live up their responsibilities of protecting lives and property of the citizens.

    He said: “Political leaders must rise and meet-up the responsibility to protect the citizens they swore an oath to protect while taking over office.

    “The recent killings at churches in Owo town in Ondo and others in Kaduna States as well as the abduction of priests do not paint a good picture of security of lives and property in the country”.

    Monanu, who is also the National Director of Ecumenical Relations of the Salvation Army, Nigeria Territory, appealed to Christians to get their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) to vote out leaders who had not live up to expectations.

    “We will continue to emphasise the importance of obtaining a PVC, and also appeal to the Independent National Electoral Commission to deploy more machines to different registration centers and ensure none of the registrants will be left behind.

    “Heads of various denominations in the South-East should mobilise their members who have reached voting age to go and obtain their PVCs to participate actively in the 2023 general election,” he said.

    He said that the church would not support Muslim-Muslim or Christian-Christian ticket; arguing that the country was made up of people with different faith, hence would resist any attempt to impose that on the people.

    Monanu called on the government at all levels to create jobs for millions of unemployed youths roaming the streets which undoubtedly contributes to increase in insecurity.
