BENINâ€”AGAINST the threat to lives and security in the country, an appeal has gone to the Federal Government to strengthen security at the countryâ€™s border to check influx of arms and ammunition.
This was contained in a communiquÃ© issued at the end of the 6th Synod of the Anglican Church held at St. Stephenâ€™s Anglican Church, Otuo, Dioceses of Sabongidda-Ora, Edo State .
Decrying the state of insecurity and the spate of killings, kidnappings, robbery, corruption and other social ills in the country, the Church also called on the federal government to arrest the situation immediately.
Besides, the Church at the Synod pushed for reforms in every sector of the countryâ€™s polity to enable the nation move forward.
The Church called for further transformation of all sectors of the economy so that the Nigerian nation could head for progress and development, which, according to it, would in turn lead to the actualization of the much talked about democratic dividends in governance.
The Church resolved that only those who were committed to the church in the past five years of their lives would be qualified to be given Anglican burial at death.
