Text from Dick­son S. Adama & Aisha Abba Ali, Kaduna From Pas­tors of the United Evan­gel­i­cal Church (UEC), founded as Qua Iboe Church, Kaduna Area Con­fer­ence have called on the youths to sup­port the anti-cor­rup­tion war em­barked upon by Pres­i­dent Muham­madu Buhari, say­ing it has re­mained Nige­ria’s ma­jor prob­lem since in­de­pen­dence.

The pas­tors who spoke at the in­au­gu­ra­tion cer­e­mony of the Kaduna Area Con­fer­ence and sec­re­tar­iat build­ing also said peace­ful co-ex­is­tence and tol­er­ance were im­per­a­tive for na­tional de­vel­op­ment.

In his re­marks, the chair­man of the Kaduna Area Con­fer­ence of the UEC, Rev­erend Reuben U. Oy­ibo said, “What­ever res­o­lu­tion that is passed from this con­fer­ence binds with all our churches in North­ern states within the core North.

“This will bring an end to the cri­sis in the North and peo­ple will live with one an­other as broth­ers and sis­ters. We are also seek­ing the sup­port of the Gov­ern­ment for jus­tice to have its way in our coun­try. It is by jus­tice that this coun­try can move ahead,” he said.

Rev. James Onoja of Kaduna South Su­per­in­ten­dency of UEC said the strate­gies they have taken in fos­ter­ing peace among the youths is prayer, not­ing that they are al­ways pray­ing for peace to reign in Kaduna state.
