…Calls for support for Anambra’s governor-elect

THE Anglican clergy in charge of Our Saviour’s Anglican Church, Enugwu-Ukwu, in Njikoka Local Government Area, Anambra State,  Rev Dr. James Nweke, has appealed to Nigeria’s leaders to shun the practice of sectionalism and self-centeredness for enduring peace and unity to reign in the country.

  The Anglican clergy, who made the appeal during a special service in the church to mark the end of the first month of 2022, identified the high tendency of ethnic sectionalism and self-centeredness in the lives of the leaders and the citizens of Nigeria as a gory factor fueling the spirit of hatred, separatism and differences in the country.

  Rev Dr Nweke was of the opinion that if Nigerians should see themselves as the same people and treat everybody equally, according to the rule of law, the crises all over the country will be a thing of the past and the country’s national narrative and fortune

reshaped.

  Describing  religion as a veritable instrument for integration, for peaceful coexistence among peoples,  the Nweke expressed displeasure that Nigeria is professing to be a

religious country, but most Nigerians continue unabated   to fail in living out  the tenets of religions and lifestyles expected of them as religious people.

  The cleric also prayed God to bless the incoming governor of Anambra State, Professor Charles Soludo with wisdom that will enable him to better the lots of the state.

  Saying that Soludo’s antecedent is a clear evidence that he will deliver on his campaign

promises, the cleric enjoined ndi Anambra, especially the church, to continue to pray and support the incoming Soludo administration by being good citizens of the state.

  In a sermon titled, “2022 is our year of total recovery”, the cleric advised Christians to emulate the biblical David by working towards total recovery of their stolen possessions by the enemies with absolute faith in God.

  He condemned in a strong term the ungodly attitudes of some Christians who patronise the services of false prophets as result of  pressing needs rather than harkening and listening to the voice of God for help.

  The highlights of the service were special prayers for the nation, the state, special thanksgivings, among others.
