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.”
