SENATE President, David Mark has warned those involved in massive killing and destruction of property not to play God, just as he urged Nigerians to leave vengeance to God.

The Senate President who  also advised  religious leaders and followers across the country not to see the present security challenge as a religious conflict, however  urged them to seek God’s intervention because  no one can fight for God.

Speaking yesterday  during a funeral service for late Lady Hannah Ugboyibo Chukwudozie held at the St. Peters Anglican Church, Ubahu, Okija, Anambra State, Senator Mark assured that the nation’s trying times would be overcome  only when Nigerians trust God for supernatural intervention in the matter.

He said,  “we must learn from our past civil strife which  left Nigeriabackward  economically and politically”.

The Senate President who  admonished the citizenry on the need to live in  harmony with one another, stressed, “we  must learn from our past mistakes, everything that happens, God has a purpose for it. It could be  a test of our faith. This trying times  i am sure would  soon be over.

”No matter our challenges, we must leave the fight for God and believe in ourself as a nation.”

He however extoled the virtues of  late Lady Hannah Ugoyibo Chukwudozie for her exemplary life of service to  community, humanity and to God, saying her death was a great loss and an irreparable one indeed.

In his homily, the Primate of the Anglican Church,Nigeria, Most Rev. Nicholas Okoh implored Nigerians to tolerate each other in their day to day activities, adding that peaceful co-existence is a panacea to frictions in the land.

The clergyman  eulogized the late Ugoyibo for her commitment to the peace and progress of the society especially her immediate community.
