TEKAN in a Press statement signed and issued to Journalists in Jos on New year by its General Secretary Very Rev, Moses J. Ebuga said (TEKAN) strongly adds its voice to those already expressed by CAN, Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria (CSN) and other prominent Nigerians on the urgent need for the Federal government to act for justice.

“That our nation is at the crossroads and in dire need of the bitterest truth is an undisputable fact. The Fellowship of Churches of Christ in Nigeria (TEKAN) strongly adds its voice to those already expressed by CAN, Catholic Secretariat of Nigeria (CSN) and other prominent Nigerians on the urgent need for the Federal government to act for justice”

TEKAN pointed out that the high level of insecurity in the country and deepening poverty should be issues of major concern to the state and every well-meaning Nigerian.

“As a Christian body, we abhor the current level of criminal activities including kidnapping, banditry, forceful marriage and conversion of Christian ladies, land grabbing and other horrible atrocities committed against helpless Nigerians in general and Christians in particular by members of Boko Haram, Fulani herdsmen and “unknown gunmen.”

“TEKAN views Bishop Matthew Hassan Kukah’s 2020 Christmas message as most timely and a wakeup call for the present government to do the right by ensuring justice for all, protecting the territorial integrity of Nigeria and its citizens and bringing an end to the growing insecurity bedeviling the country, particularly what is happening in the North.

“We call on the state and all Nigerians to be united in condemning and finding solutions to the awful condition rightly pointed out by Bishop Kukah rather than castigate him. We particularly call on the Nigerian government to rise up to its responsibility and take the necessary action to salvage the nation from deepening crisis”.
