Cleric urges parents to protect children against exploitation

2015-01-12 07:58

Gwagwalada - Rev. Nicholas Okoh, Primate, Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion, has called on parents to protect their children against being used for selfish political gains ahead of the February general elections.

He made the call on Sunday in Gwagwalada, FCT, at the dedication of the new Holy Trinity Cathedral Building of the Diocese of Gwagwalada.

He said: “Nigerians should not kill themselves for any reason; we should keep our children and ensure that nobody exploits them.”

“The prophecy about Nigeria is that things will be better, we will remain one, we will make more progress and that we are not going backward.”

“Whichever prophecy coming from anywhere that contradicts this is a wrong prophecy.”

He expressed satisfaction with the completion of the cathedral building, adding that the work of God was moving forward.

The primate urged worshipers in the church to see the cathedral as a centre for evangelism and cautioned them against using the grace of God in vain.

“The cathedral should be a centre from which worshipers arrange and mobilise to spread the word of God.”

“It is a place where people will be active in positive things in spreading the word of God so that more souls could be won,” he added.

In his remark, Ndanusa Alao, Chairman, Fund Raising Committee for the cathedral building, described the journey toward the execution of the project as “difficult.”

He said that though the foundation of the cathedral was laid in 2007, actual construction work started in earnest in 2012.

He attributed the success recorded in the project to support from the primate, members of the church as well as other well meaning individuals and corporate bodies.
