From Pwanagba Agabus, Jos
The Evangelical Church Winning All (ECWA) has called on President Muhammadu to put in place the necessary mechanisms in ensuring the implementation of the resolutions of the 2014 National Conference, saying the conference has substantially addressed the current challenges bedeviling the country.
The Church also appeal to the President to ensure “justice and fairness to all, not just in words but also in deeds”.
The Church disclosed this through its President, Rev. Stephen Baba Panya, in Jos, the Plateau State Capital.
Panya said, “While government is responding to the demands of Nigerian youths, it is our firm believe that lasting solutions can only be found in decisively resolving the challenges confronting the nation.
“Fortunately, the 2014 National Conference, which has over 600 resolutions, has substantially addressed these challenges.
“We therefore urge the Buhari administration to seize this historic opportunity provided by the #EndSARS demands to urgently put in place the necessary mechanisms for implementation of recommendations of the Conference Report”, he explained.
“The Executive, Legislature and Judiciary and other stakeholders should work together to actualize this”, he maintained.
On the issue of treating citizens equally, the ECWA President said, “Let me at this point also remind President Muhammadu Buhari of his pledge to Nigerians during his inauguration as President on 29th May, 2015. The President assured Nigerians that ‘he belongs to everybody and belongs to nobody’. This statement, I believe, was meant to convey Mr. President’s desire and commitment to treat and serve the interests of Nigerians equally irrespective of ethnicity, religion or political persuasion.
“We appeal to Mr. President to ensure justice and fairness to all, not just in words but also in deeds. This is pertinent because justice is truly the foundation of peace”, he stressed.
