June 12: ECWA president urges Tinubu to fulfill campaign promises
The President of the Evangelical Church Winning All, Reverend, Dr. Stephen Baba Panya has called on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to fulfil all his campaign promises and meet up with the needs of Nigerians irrespective of religion or ethnicity.
Rev Panya made this call in a statement issued on Democracy Day Celebration, noting that Nigerians are eagerly awaiting the early fulfillment of numerous promises made during the political campaigns, adding Nigeria today are not smiling due to the killings of innocent lives as a result of insecurities, massive destruction of a good number of communities, kidnapping, hunger, and general lack, among others.
He observed that corruption has been the bane of our politics, advising that the Nigerian economy needs total overhauling as means of livelihood have since disappeared from most quarters.
The cleric said, “Nigerians are eagerly awaiting the early fulfillment of numerous promises that all presently in authority made during their political campaigns just a few months ago. I therefore, call on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu to do everything possible to carry everyone along. Leaders at all levels must put behind them any sentiment and focus on meeting the needs of Nigerians irrespective of political affiliations, ethnic, religious, and other differences”.
He called on President Tinubu to correct all the anomalies introduced by the immediate past administration in terms of appointments of ministers, service chiefs, and other heads of parastatals. Nigerians of all ethnic and religious inclinations must be carried along.
” The Democracy Day that Nigerians are celebrating is the day of having our own government, but many citizens do not know if truly the government is theirs. This is because their immediate future seems to have been taken over by outrageously wicked killers who have cut short their aspirations.
“Nigerians are calling on the President to do everything possible to return the smiles of the captives once again. Our celebration can only be complete when those in captivity are set free, and those who are seemingly safe are truly safe.
“The church is praying that this administration will do all within its power to bring back the remaining 97 Chibok school girls, our beloved Leah Sharibu, Alice Loksha Ngaddah, Grace Lukas, Lilian Daniel Gyang and all others still in captivity,” he prayed.
The ECWA President, then urged the entire Christendom to be law abiding, peaceful, and true ambassadors of Jesus Christ in their respective endeavours and be sure to promote peaceful coexistence with all Nigerians.
