Christian group tasks FG on restructuring
A group, Christian Welfare Initiative (CWI), has called for restructuring of the country to foster peace, justice and development.
The group described the current political structure as faulty and lopsided, saying it favours one part of the country above the other.
President, Professor Magnus Adeyemi Atilade, made this known during the group’s fifth national conference, which also featured fundraising for the establishment of a creativity centre for disabled persons.
He said there was urgent need for the country to re-arrange its present setup. He called for fairness, equity and justice in administration, political appointments and distribution of national wealth.
Atilade said the neglect of disabled persons was a spiritual challenge to the conscience of the nation. “Let us give them a voice in governance and space in everyday life and living, by making provisions to accommodate their special and peculiar needs. We all must provide succour for the weak in our society.”
The CWI president also called on honest Christians to join politics in the interest of their children’s future. He said Christians’ involvement in politics and governance is an important part of fulfilling God’s purpose for the body of Christ.
Speakers at the conference included social activist, Elder Ayo Opadokun, and Executive Director, Disability Right Advocacy Centre, Mrs. Irene Patrick Ogbogu. Head of Bond Group, Sir Asiwaju Debo Omotosho, was chairman of the event.
