Let Christ take charge, group urges leaders, lauds Sanwo-Olu on security

A non-interdomination group, Christian Conscience, has admonished all political and religious leaders in the country to allow Jesus Christ to intervene in the affairs of the nation. 

The group advised the leaders to emulate Christ, who is an embodiment of love and peace, adding that until these virtues are emulated, our leaders will continue to depend on their own strength rather than allowing Christ to lead them aright.

"Every human being, leader or follower should inculcate the fear of God in them. Where there is fear of God, there is love just as Jesus Christ is the symbol of love this Easter season",  the group said.

In a goodwill Easter message to Christians and political leaders, Christian Conscience advised leaders to allow Christ's virtues to always guide them by loving one and another.

The release, which was issued after the group's monthly meeting held in Lagos yesterday, was jointly signed by its new Acting National Chairman, Dr.( Mrs) Yetunde Akinluyi and the National Secretary, Rev. Dr. Kolawole Verralls.

"When we emulate Christ, there will be peace and love rather than the politically induced senseless killing and general insecurity in the land. "'Do or die' has become the political song of our leaders.      

"Rather than allow Christ to anoint them for leadership roles, political leaders are forcing themselves on the people, forgetting that only God anoints leaders," the statement said.

The group condemned the incessant killings of Nigerians by bandits and herders, urging the federal government to put all machineries in place to identify the sponsors of these hoodlums and bring them to justice.

The group admonished: "To avoid food shortage in the country, government should provide adequate security for farmers to encourage them to go back to the farm".

On the regional agitatition for breakup of the Nigerian nation, the group advised the agitators to follow the due process by allowing dialogue to resolve all issues.

The group also commended the Lagos State Governor, Mr Babajide Sanwo-Olu, for his excellent performance in bringing governance to the people through his people-oriented programmes and activities, but urged him to sustain the peaceful co-existence of Lagosians, by providing adequate security in the state.

The group further urged the people of Lagos State to constantly pray for the government so as to continue to put smiles on their faces  while urging  Nigerians to always  pray for our leaders as contained in the Holy book but further urged the people to always  play their constitutional  and civic duties to compliments government efforts.
