THE Full Gospel Busi­ness Men’s Fel­low­ship In­ter­na­tional has sued for peace among Nige­ri­ans to pave way for more de­vel­op­ment across the coun­try.

The body made the call yes­ter­day in Port Har­court dur­ing a brief­ing ahead of its 2017 Port Har­court Re­gional Con­ven­tion billed from Novem­ber 16 to 18.

The na­tional di­rec­tor of the body, Onoh Ok­wara Onoh, who made the call said, it was nec­es­sary peo­ple de­sist from acts ca­pa­ble of dis­rupt­ing peace­ful co-ex­is­tence in the coun­try , stress­ing that de­struc­tions can­not lead the na­tional any where. He said prob­lems of the coun­try could be ad­dressed through chang­ing the minds of the cit­i­zens as well as those in au­thor­ity.

Ac­cord­ing to him, “When the minds of peo­ple are trans­formed, the so­ci­ety would be trans­formed for bet­ter “.

Also speak­ing, the Chair­man Plan­ning Com­mit­tee for the con­ven­tion, Dr. Okere Iragh­n­ima, dis­closed that over 6,000 del­e­gates are ex­pected at the con­ven­tion, which is themed ‘In times like this’. He said, the hap­pen­ings in the na­tion and across the world calls for deep prayers and watch­ful­ness.

He said, “The con­ven­tion is to call men’s at­ten­tion to the times we are in. What does the time por­tray to us as a per­son and what steps are we tak­ing to make the best of the times and how can we live in it ful­filled.”

He urged the pub­lic to lever­age on the op­por­tu­nity and par­tic­i­pate in the pro­gramme.
