Presbyterian Church commends Jonathan on Jos crisis

THE Principal Clerk of the Presbyterian Church of Nigeria, The Rev. Ndukwe Eme, has commended Vice President Goodluck Jonathan for the actions he has taken so far on the Jos crisis.

Eme, in an interview, said he was delighted to note that the vice president has personally visited the scene of the crisis.

“He has also held a special meeting with government as well as religious leaders on ways of achieving inter-religious harmony.

The government has also deployed air force and naval officers in the streets of Jos in response to complaints of the presence of fake soldiers who bring in arms to escalate the crisis.

Vice President Jonathan had earlier warned that this time around, the culprits would be fished out and made to face the law”, the cleric noted.

He said these prompt and positive actions were an indication of what to expect in the presidency of Jonathan if and when he is sworn into office following the ill-health of President Umaru Yar’Adua.

“In addition, the government’s deployment of air force and naval personnel to Jos following complaints bordering on the presence of fake soldiers in the streets of Jos is an indication that Vice President Jonathan would run a response government”, he added.
