Abuja, 09 December, 2023 / 1:13 pm (ACI Africa).
Good governance is crucial in restoring hope in Nigeria, members of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) have said.
Speaking during the Fourth Quarter meeting of the Nigeria Inter Religious Council (NIREC) on Tuesday, December 5 in Abuja, CAN President, Archbishop Daniel Okoh said, “Our nation has faced numerous challenges that have shaken the very core of our unity and stability.”
“From insecurity and violence to political tensions and economic hardships, the Nigerian people have endured strife and extreme difficulties," the president of the Christian entity that includes representatives of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Nigeria (CBCN) said.
He noted that Nigerians who could not bear with the difficulties in the country had migrated to other nations in search of greener pastures in what he said "is commonly known today in Nigeria as Japa Syndrome."
Against this backdrop, Archbishop Okoh, the overseer of the Christ Holy Church International said, “The solution is not in running away to other countries but in finding ways to restore hope for the citizens in our dear country, Nigeria.”
