In order to foster respect for the rule of law while create jobs for the citizenry to make them self-reliant towards reducing youth restiveness in the country, the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), Enugu State Chapter, has the government at all levels to overhaul the country’s security system to guarantee the protection of lives and property of the citizens.

Rev. Ositadinma Edeh, Chairman of CAN, said this in a statement to mark Nigeria at 60 Tuesday, September 29.

He said that Nigeria at 60 called for celebration, not minding the numerous challenges facing the most populous Black nation.

Edeh, however, reminded those in authority that the Most High was Sovereign over all kingdoms on earth, and that God allows them the positions of authority as he wishes.

The cleric also urged leaders to be guided by the biblical injunction at 1 Corinthians 4:2, which says ‘in this regard, what is expected of stewards is that they be found faithful.’

If all in different positions of authority in this country could see themselves from this divine point of view, there would be respect for the rule of law and good governance, he stressed.

He, therefore, urged the government of the day to double its efforts at providing of quality education for Nigerians who desire to be educated.

The CAN boss also called on those in authority to create jobs for the citizens, knowing that would certainly reduce youth restiveness and make them self-reliant.

Edeh advocated an enabling environment for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to thrive in the country.

He said: “I wish to call on all Nigerians, especially Christians to continue in prayers for peace and security over the nation.

“I pray that God will comfort those who lost their loved ones in one form of violence or the other and also for the provision of adequate care for those in different internally displaced persons’ camps in the country.”
