Nigerian Christian Pilgrim Commission releases communiqué after consultative meeting with steering/facilitation committee

After an intensive meeting with necessary stake holders in Lagos last Sunday, the Nigerian Christian Pilgrims Commission, has released the communiqué below to the public.




WHEREAS Rev. Yakubu Pam was appointed by Mr. President as Executive Secretary of Nigerian Christian Pilgrims Commission, he was mandated by his appointor, President Muhammadu Buhari GCFR to continue his good work in the area of peace building.

In pursuance of the above mandate, Rev. Yakubu Pam, after extensive consultation with well-meaning Nigerians and stakeholders, decided to plan and work towards a National Prayer/Peace Summit.

The Planning Committee of the Peace Summit, as a prelude to the main event (and on the advice of Rev. Yakubu Pam) decided that a Consultative Meeting be held with Christian Leaders in Lagos on Sunday 13th December 2020 at EKO Hotels, Victoria Island, LAGOS.

In furtherance of the above, Chief Dr. Kenny Martins was mandated to, and he reached out to a broad spectrum of Church Leaders in Lagos to attend the Consultative Meeting.

The meeting was attended by well-meaning Christian Leaders in Lagos who represented various interest groups of the body of Christ in Nigeria. After deliberating on various issues, the following resolutions were reached:

i. That the Church in Nigeria should play its appropriate role in guiding the government of the day.

ii. That the Church should be united to play this strategic role of guiding government.

iii. That the government should, as a matter of urgency, revisit the Report of the 2014. Constitutional Confab, and for that matter urgently take steps to actualize positive actions on Constitutional Review.

iv. That the Church should play a predominant role in preaching peace to Nigerians, thereby promoting unity in the Country.

V. That the Church should impress it on the Federal Government to take a cue on how the Church leadership in Nigeria had embraced effective and efficient provision of services in the areas of Education, Electricity and Healthcare - all with resources of the Church.

vi. That the Federal Government should, as a matter of urgency, pay active attention to security and scale down the activities of insurgent groups.

vii. That the Church should set up budget monitoring teams (at both Federal and State levels) to enhance National growth

viii. That the Federal Government should take urgent steps to direct Universities in the country to resume academic activities in order to reduce youth restiveness.

ix. That the Church should be co-opted to play a defined role in promoting grassroot development.

x. That Traditional Rulers should be engaged actively to play positive roles on governance to promote peace and development.

xi. That Government should carry out a survey on the demography of Nigerians in order to pin-point key areas of needed social investment.

xii. That Government should recognise that truth is the only factor that can heal the wounds in our country.

xiii. That the Church should not fail to play its expected strong spiritual role in building the conscience of the nation, so that truth and justice can always be promoted.

xiv. That the Church should preach the full gospel of Jesus Christ by speaking truth to the leadership of the country as everything that emanate from the pulpit collectively shape the social and political outlook of a country.

xv. That the Federal Government should place high premium on human life, as the primary responsibility of every government is the promotion of the welfare of its citizens.

xvi. That Government should re-evaluate our educational system that places too much emphasis on paper qualifications, but instead promote the acquisition of technical skills that can engender more development.

xvii. That the Church Leadership should liaise with identified or perceived Leaders of the recent “ENDSARS” protests and advise them to jetlison any plan of embarking on a second “ENDSARS” protest, but instead enter into dialogue with the Federal Government.

xviii. That the Federal Government should stop paying lip service to the various issues of security, hunger and social justice, but instead create an environment of fairness and equity for all and sundry.
