NGO partners with Church to combat crime

The Atmosphere of Love Chaplaincy (ALC), a Non Governmental Organisation (NGO) and Founder of Praise Land Royal Springs International Church, Apostle Chinedum Ejiofor, have joined forces to support government’s efforts in the fight against crime and crimi­nality the Federal Capital Ter­ritory (FCT).
Commandant General of the Chaplaincy, Prince Des­mond Ononuju, gave the indi­cation during the decoration of Apostle Ejiofor as one of the national patrons of ALC at his Church auditorium in Ik­wa-Zuba, Gwagwalada Area Council of FCT.
According to him, the rec­ognition of the Church Gen­eral Overseer was to spur him in doing more for the less privileged individuals across the FCT and the country in general.
Ononuju described the positive contributions of the cleric to better the lives of the poor masses as the best way to reducing crime rate in the society.
He, therefore, urged influ­ential Nigerians, Church and opinion leaders to emulate him in complementing the effort of government in job creation.
According to him, if people are provided with the enabling environment to learn skills that could make them earn a living and become self reliant, it would curb the challenges currently threatening the se­curity and peace of Nigeria.
Speaking after his decora­tion alongside his wife, the cleric, Apostle Chinedum Ejio­for, said that the task of build­ing a virile Nigeria should be the concern of churches and philanthropists.
He explained that most of the sickness and other menace being heard across the country where avoidable, if the people are given the needed support.
Apostle Ejiofor urged church leaders, to, rather than being selfish trying to accumulate wealth for themselves, take the plight of their members and indeed the masses more seri­ous, by making necessary pro­vision that could be providing jobs and financial assistance to both members as well as none members.
