Bishop seeks es­tab­lish­ment of con­flict res­o­lu­tion com­mis­sion

Daily Trust - - NEWS - From Hope Abah, Makurdi

Bishop of the Angli­can Church, Makurdi Dio­cese, Dr. Nathan Inyom, yes­ter­day urged the federal govern­ment to set up a bureau, com­mis­sion or min­istry for peace and con­flict res­o­lu­tion in the coun­try. Bishop Inyom said at a news brief­ing in Makurdi that the es­tab­lish­ment of a body re­spon­si­ble for con­flict would promptly ad­dress crises rav­aging parts of the coun­try. “We have pol­icy for agri­cul­ture, labour, wa­ter among oth­ers in the coun­try, but why is it tak­ing govern­ment too long to de­velop pol­icy for con­flicts and res­o­lu­tion. Con­flicts have claimed many lives in this coun­try yet there is no pol­icy in that di­rec­tion,” he said.
