The Bishop of Owo Diocese, Methodist Church Nigeria, Revd. Solomon Adegbite, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to stop the killing of innocent Christians in the country.

He also urged all government officials at the state and local government levels to steer clear of religious matter by ensuring that no religion is imposed over another.

The clergyman stated this at the 29th Diocesan Synod of the church held at Methodist Church Nigeria, Epinmi-Akoko, in Akoko South-East Local Government Area of Ondo State.

The bishop insisted that until people stopped their ungodly behaviours, the situation of the country might not improve.

He identified the current economic hardship as the major reason why some people attempted suicide recently, saying Nigerians needed to have positive change of hearts and pray to God for better days to come

“The various governments need to engage transparent technocrats to manage the economy of the country in order to bring succour to the poor Nigerians,” Adegbite stated.

On the incessant attacks by suspected herdsmen, the bishop decried the killings and destructions of farmlands in many parts of the country and urged the Federal Government and security agencies to curtail the activities of the assailants.

Adegbite, while calling for an egalitarian society where every Nigerian will feel equal, opined that public offices should be shared equally among various tribes in the country.
