    They attributed the security situation in the country to injustice and lack of equity in the distribution of national resources to all regions.

    In a statement by its National Coordinator, Sheik Mohammed Adamu and National Secretary, Mallam Ibrahim Bala Nasarawa, respectively, the religious leaders said they will not be doing the President any good if they keep quiet and watch things deteriorate.

    “All these security problems in Nigeria today and the new threats we have in the country today have both spiritual and physical causes that must be tackled from the same fronts.”

    ”We will be doing the president and his All Progressives Congress, APC Government in particular and the country, in general, a great disservice if we keep quiet while our country continues to burn.”

    While tasking the President to effectively equip security agencies to help them face the current threats to the security and unity of the country, the CCIC said they are motivated to add their voices to the growing concerns by Nigerians and offer spiritual guidance on the way forward.

    “While the federal government may not take our position seriously because of its usual I-don’t-care-attitude, we will still offer our advice as we view it as the quickest way to get out of the carnage staring us in the face.”

    “We suggest the immediate convocation of a three-day national prayer for peace and unity of Nigeria.

    “We appeal to President Buhari to deliberately and urgently address the issue of injustice and lack of equity in the distribution of appointments especially against the Igbo people of the South-East in his government.

    “The legitimate agitation for inclusion of Igbo in appointments of service chiefs in the country by some Nigerians should be taken seriously given that on two consecutive times in this administration, the ethnic group known for its great and immense contributions to economic growth and development of the country has been sidelined,” the group said.

    “We, therefore, appeal to our dear president to ignore naysayers and go ahead to restructure the security apparatus to include Igbos,” the statement said.
