Seek face of God for restoration of Nigeria’s lost glories- Anglican Primate




Most Rev. Nicholas Okoh, Primate of Church of Nigeria Anglican Communion, has appealed to Nigerians to seek the face of God in order to restore Nigeria’s lost glories.

Okoh spoke on Tuesday in Abuja, at the 2018 Divine Commonwealth Conference (DIVCCON), held at the National Christian Centre.

The theme of the conference is: “I will Restore,” taken from the Book of Joel 2:25.

He said that all Nigerians, the leaders and the led must seek the face of God for the restoration in the political and economic spheres.

Okoh said that though Nigeria has passed through so many “locust years, and still counting,’’ yet God can still Restore Nigeria.

“ This losses suffered in this nation are numerous, loss of brotherly love, loss of worth for the sanctity of human life, and so on. ‘’

The cleric said that the leaders at all levels must begin a reformation that would enthrone righteousness, justice, equity and fairness.

“Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people. Enough of the self-deceit of believing we can fix things without God.

“ The matter of seeking the face of God for restoration should not be left to the religious leaders alone, the political leaders must realise that unless the lord builds the house, they labour in vain who build it; unless the lord guards the city, the watchman stays awake in vain,” he said.

The primate said that Christians must individually seek restoration.

“The Christians in Nigeria have learnt to pray earnestly and seek the face of God only at the peak of suffering or extreme circumstances.

“ Then like ancient Israel of the days of the judges, as soon as there is divine intervention, we rejoice and return to the normal Nigerian Christianity, therefore, we repeat the cycle.

“ God will not let them ask, “Where is their God ? But the church must awake from slumber so that the restoration God has promised Nigeria can be permanent, “he added.

Okoh said that when God promised Israel restoration, it was first and foremost a restoration for the nation.

“ The restoration so promised was going to cut across every facet of their lives and nationhood, namely spiritual, economic and political.

“Spiritual because God will restore them to their covenant relationship with Him, economic because there will be abundance of supply of their needs so that they will eat and be satisfied, and praise God who has dealt so wondrously with them.

“ Political because God will preserve the territorial integrity of the nation so that enemies will no longer invade them,” he said.

The primate said that over 7500 Anglican faithful from Nigeria and the Diaspora were expected to attend the conference.

FG urged to declare state of emergency on federal roads, Senate tasks




Disturbed by the deplorable conditions of road networks across the country, the Senate on Tuesday, charged the federal government to declare a state of emergency on all federal roads.
This was as the upper legislative chamber mandated  its Committees on Petroleum (Downstream), Federal Roads Maintenance Agency, FERMA and National Planning to investigate the Petroleum Products Price Regulatory Agency, PPPRA on the non-remittance of five percent user charge pump price of petrol.
Besides, the joint committees were also asked to investigate the non remittance of international vehicle transit charge accruing to FERMA and other established state roads maintenance agency.
These resolutions followed deliberations on a motion sponsored under Orders 42 and 52 of the Senate rule by Senator Geshom Bassey (PDP Cross River South)  who lamented the deplorable state of federal roads in the country.
Presenting the motion, Senator Basset expressed concern that several thousands of lives have been lost to road accidents due to bad and un-motorable roads, while bad portion of roads are safe haven for kidnappers and armed robbers on Nigerian highways.
Supporting the motion, Senator Chukwuka Utazi (PDP Enugu North) said the state of the federal highways are highly deplorable and that urgent attention is needed especially within this budget cycle to do something drastic to address the situation.
Utazi said “and like you prayed that the PPPRA should release the fund for totally provided for FERMA to do  it’s job.
“Mr President, the raining season is just gradually coming to an end and this is the opportunity for FERMA to go and start rehabilitating our roads so that Nigerians can move freely.
“This period is also the time for harvest and in order to ensure that farmers that are in the hinterland get to the appropriate market to get adequate prices for their goods, we  have to make sure the roads are properly done.
“You also know that because we don’t have the rail lines that should be in place, most of the goods and services that we move from one place to the other are done through trucking and if you continue to do trucking, you know that the life span of any  major federal highway may not last long.
“This is a very important motion moved at the most appropriate time to get the desired attention and I’m standing here lending my support and full weigh to get that being done knowing fully well that those of us from the south east are the major complainants of the bad roads in this country and we hope that we get the desired attention from FERMA if  this motion scales through.”
In his remark, President of the Senate, Dr. Ahmad Lawan said he believe that every part of the country suffers from this problem of deplorable  roads.
He expressed optimism that the  committees mandated to look into the matter will  swing into action and attend to the issue associated with this motion.
