Presbyterian Church sets agenda for Jonathan

The Presbyterian Church of Nigeria (PCN) has identified seven priority projects which it wants Acting President Goodluck Jonathan to pursue with the utmost urgency in order to restore confidence in the government and put Nigeria on the track of progress and  development.

These are the post-amnesty programme in the Niger Delta, the conclusion of work on  electoral  reform  and the review of the 1999 Constitution,the provision of adequate and steady power supply,  rehabilitation of roads, renewed fight against corruption and the review of deregulation of the down-stream sector of the oil industry. These programmes, among many that deserve government attention, the church said, are top priority programmes that demand immediate action.

In a communiqué issued at the end of the quarterly meeting of its General Assembly Executive Committee (GAEC), it   commended the National Assembly for acting in the overall interest of Nigerians by empowering  Jonathan to assume office as acting president.

The communiqué, signed by the Moderator of the General Assembly, The Rt. Rev. Dr. Ubon Bassey Usung and the Principal Clerk, the  Rev. Ndukwe Nwachukwu  Eme, commended the acting president   for his commitment to the prosecution and punishment of culprits of the recent ethno-religious crisis in Jos.
