General Overseer, Redeemed Christian Church of God, Pastor Enoch Adeboye; President of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Pastor Ayo Oritsejafor; and the Presiding Bishop, Living Faith Worldwide, Bishop David Oyedepo, are expected to meet in Ibadan and pray against insecurity in the country.
The Presiding Bishop, Sword of the Spirit Ministries, Bishop Wale Oke, said this during a press conference heralding the 30th Holy Ghost Convention of the church.
Oke also criticised the reported talks between the Federal Government and Boko Haram.
Instead of dialogue, he said the FG should use its powers to deal with the sect.
He said, “Boko Haram is evil. We are going to join our Christian brethren in the North and fight Boko Haram to a standstill. We are not fighting Islam because I have Muslims in my family.
“It may look as if they are succeeding, but they will fail.”
Meanwhile, the Director, Institute for Development Studies at the University of Nigeria Nsukka, Prof. Osita Ogbu, has attributed the security challenges facing the country to “absence of justice and equality”.
Ogbu spoke with our correspondent in Abuja during the installation of Chuka Edward Oboli as the 3rd President of Rotary Club of Abuja Metro, District 9125.
He said, “Poverty and economic inequality may not instantly breed terrorism or influence the leaders of terrorist organisations, but they can help to create rich recruiting grounds for the foot soldiers of the terrorist camps.”
