Lagos - The Apostolic Coalition of Prophetic Elders (ACPE), a Christian group, has called on local leaders to shun marginalization.
The call came through a communiqué released at the end of an eight-day international prayer conference held in Awka, Anambra State.

“To this end, the conference urges President Muhammadu Buhari, the governors and all those who are in authority to ensure that all Nigerians are treated equally even while not sparing those that looted the nation's treasury irrespective of their party, tribe or religion,” ACPE s stated.
The group decried the prevailing challenges in the country such as the Boko Haram insurgency and corruption as well as same-sex marriages.
“There is also the need for abnormal prayers in our present abnormal situations where insurgency of different descriptions, including kidnapping, political violence, armed robbery, rape, ritual murder and sacrifices, corruption in the public sector and same sex marriage, are prevailing.”
