Cleric Tasks Buhari on Governance


As the economic policies of the Federal Government continue to impact negatively on the citizenry, a cleric, Archbishop Goddowell Avwomakpa has tasked President Muhammadu Buhari on good governance in the country.

Avwomakpa who is also the Chairman of Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), South-south Zone and Chairman, Niger Delta Bishops Forum, enjoined Buhari to call for a national conference where the representatives of the various ethnic groups will come together to discuss the way forward to attain national unity, peace and progress.

According to the cleric, the suffering in the land is getting very worrisome especially with the destruction of farmlands by Fulani herdsmen and incessant killing of innocent citizens coupled with the horrible condition that majority of Nigerians now find themselves.

He argued that there was need for the various ethnic nationalities that make up the country to seat at a conference to discuss the way forward

Avwomakpa noted that before now, majority of the citizens in rural areas-mainly farmers, artisans and unemployed young adults who voted for change based on President Buhari’s antecedent and campaign promises expected to see some manner of change one year after this government took over.
