Handle Niger Delta militants with care – Cleric Cautions FG

The Church of Nige­ria Anglican Com­munion has advised the Federal Government to adopt tactical approach to the Niger Delta Avengers’ issue so as to avoid further destruction of property and facilities.
The church also con­demned the N940m ear­marked for grazing in the 2016 budget by the Federal Government, which it said smacked of discrimination and favoritism of one tribe over the other.
It stated this in a com­munique issued at the 6th Synod of the Dioecese Ekiti West, held in Aramoko Ekiti and obtained by our correspondent.
Expressing sadness over the spate of brutal killings of innocent Nigerians by the Fulani herdsmen, the Synod called on “the Fed­eral Government to imme­diately bring this mindless killings to a halt.”
The Synod recommend­ed that government should rather encourage creation of private ranches and made available incentives for people engaging in ag­riculture instead of grazing reserves.
It charged “parents, school authorities and even the church to continue to play active role in mentor­ing of the youth and young children leading to a de­crease in moral decadence in the nation which is the bedrock for sexual offences of various degrees.”
