The President of the Church of Christ in Nations (COCIN) Rev. Dachollom Datiri on Tuesday said the security situation in the country is worsening by the day and it appears security operatives are unable to deal with it.
He said the security situation is beyond Boko Haram, Fulani herders, bandits, kidnappers, miscreants, criminals or any other threats.
Datiri raised the concerns at the church headquarters in Jos, Plateau State while speaking on the state of the nation.
He said, “Insecurity continues to worsen as the security architecture in the country appears to be unable to deal with the situation.
“Unfortunately there appears to be a deliberate attempt to frustrate any effort to improve the situation”, he decried.
“It should be obvious that the problem goes beyond Boko Haram, or Fulani herders, or bandits, or kidnappers, or miscreants, or criminals or any name you may call them. Are these names not being used deceptively so that the real problem is not tackled?
“Isn’t the problem ideological? Why is it hard for us to accept that there exist in this country people who believe in radical Islam and the Islamisation of this country by Jihad?
On the abducted persons, particularly Christians, Daitiri said, “While we celebrate the release of Rev. Polycarp Zongo, others remain in captivity.
He noted that the likes of Lilian Gyang since January 2020, Grace Tuka since July 2019, Alice Ngaddah since March 2018 and Leah Sharibu since February 2018, among others.
“Even some of the Chibok girls are still in captivity since 2014. May God have mercy on us”.
On the high rate of inflation in the country, Datiri said, “The ongoing depreciation of the Naira against the Dollar is grossly and negatively affecting the prices of goods and services, making life hard for the ordinary citizen.
“Many families are struggling to feed these days. Government must work hard to reverse the situation”, he admonished.
Speaking on corruption in the country, the COCIN President said, “On the Corruption Perception Index, Nigeria currently is 149 of 183 countries and the 2™ most corrupt country in West Africa.
“We all can see corruption playing out in all sectors of national life, including the kind of lopsided appointments”, he lamented.
“The current government needs to sit up soon as its campaign promises are suffering seriously in terms of fulfilment”, he admonished.
