The Archbishop of Kwara Province of Anglican Communion, Israel Afolabi Amoo, has pleaded with President Muhammadu Buhari to act swiftly to save Nigerians from a total collapse of the nation’s economy.

He observed that the security challenges coupled with the farmers/herders clashes, ethnic clashes, banditry, and kidnapping called for proactive measures by the government of the day to save Nigerians from the hardship they are going through.

Speaking at the 22nd provincial meeting held at the Diocese of Jebba, Kwara, the Archbishop noted that the country’s economic landscape is on the brink following the security challenges in the country.

He stressed that matters had now gone from bad to worse, stressing that never in the country’s socio-political history has the shadow of failed nationhood been so palpable.

He called on the president to rise to the occasion and speak up in the face of threats to national cohesion arising from inflammatory remarks and drumbeats of war from separatist groups in some parts of the country.

He explained, “The skirmishes which we have been seeing in some parts of the South West, involving the indigenes and settler Fulani herdsmen is a pointer that the crisis may fester longer than expected.”

He lamented that the silence of President Buhari even in the face of the tragic assault on public peace and constitutional sanity gives the impression that there are people in “this country who own Nigeria more than the rest.”

The Archbishop enjoined all Nigerians to look unto God for salvation and urged everyone to embrace peace in accordance with the theme; “Look to Jesus And Live”.
