BUHARI-1-696x464

President Muhammadu Buhari has joined other political leaders to call for church leaders to use their positions to promote peace and unity in the country.

He made the call at the opening of the 23rd General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church of Nigeria on Saturday in Calabar.

The President who is still in London for a 10-day vacation was represented by Head of Service of the Federation, Mrs. Winifred Eyo-Ita.

Buhari said the church, as the conscience of the nation, should promote ideals of unity and pray for the nation as we move towards election year.

He said that the gathering was historic in view of the significant role the church played in the existence of the country.

 

The president used the occasion to call on all Nigerians to support government programmes and project and join in the fight against corruption for a better Nigeria.

Recall that the acting President, Yemi Osibajo and Lagos State Governor, Akimwumi Ambode also called for Preachers and Churches to contribute to national peace and unity.
