The Chairman Christian Association of Nigeria, Ondo State Chapter, Very Rev’d Father Anselm Ologunwa, has applauded the Christian community in the state for their intensified prayers in the quick recovery and safe return of the governor, Arakunrin Oluwarotimi Akeredolu from his medical trip.
He expressed happiness that their prayers did not go unanswered since the sickness lasted.
Fr. Ologunwa, at the third plenary meeting of the association held in Ondo, tasked the religious leaders not to relent at praying for their political leaders for God’s direction at all times.
The Chairman who identified various challenges facing the country such as the brain drain issue, the Japa syndrome for doctors and nurses, immorality and indecent dressing among the youths, however urged the religious leaders to go back to God and should not allow it to tear the nation and Church apart.
The Chairman also admonished parents to continue to show good examples to their children who are the future of tomorrow.
Fr. Ologunwa said God has given the country Nigeria everything needed to make it great both in natural resources and human development in the comity of nations but for poor management and our sins, God has probably turned his deaf ears towards the nation.
And on the distribution of Federal government palliative to the people of the State, the Chairman expressed displeasure over the attitude of some individuals among the association who go to government on behalf of the Christian association to collect palliative and never recourse it to the association.
Fr. Ologunwa appealed to members, mostly those in the local government areas, not to allow the divide and rule of some people to divide the church over palliative.
He assured the Christian community in the state that he will continue to engage the government whenever the need arises so as to enjoy the cordiality and prevailing peaceful coexistence in the state.
