Clerics under Pentecostal Bishops Association of Anambra State Incorporated, have advised Gov. Charles Soludo of Anambra to focus on winning the war against insecurity in the state.

 

The bishops were dismayed by the level of insecurity in the state and requested that urgent attention be taken to return the state to its pride of place.

 

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the message is contained in a communiqué made available to journalists on Friday after its two-day annual retreat held in Awka.

 

The association urged Soludo to be focused in order to achieve his developmental plans for the state.

 

The communiqué was signed by the president of the association, Archbishop Prince Nwodika, the chairman, Archbishop Ephraim Ndife, and the vice-chairman, Bishop Timothy Obidike.

 

The association also advised the governor to be fair in political appointments to correct the marginalisation of people of the Pentecostal denomination in the past.

 

The clerics called on the citizens to join hands with the group for fervent prayers and support for the new government and prayed for God’s intervention in Nigeria.
