President Muhammadu Buhari has charged church leaders to use their positions to promote peace and unity in the country.
NAN reports that he made the call at the opening of the 23 General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church of Nigeria on Saturday in Calabar.
Represented by Head of Service of the Federation, Mrs Winifred Eyo-Ita, Buhari said the church, as the conscience of the nation, should promote ideals of unity and pray for the nation as we move towards the election year.
He said that the gathering was historic in view of the significant role the church played in the existence of the country.
“The Presbyterian Church of Nigeria remains a pivotal agent of change in our nation and beyond.
“Your role in education, health and other social spheres of our society remains commendable and as a Government, we are committed to promoting the ideals and societal norms that unite us as a people.
“I commend the church for her investment in the hospitality industry and education through the proposed establishment of Presby Guest House and her efforts to complete Hope Waddell University aimed at producing new generation of leaders.
“We also commend the church for her contribution in the agricultural subsector, particularly the Presby Farm Ltd as well as the Yakurr Farms.
“The church is encouraged to take advantage of the various opportunities provided by the government to empower Nigerians to venture into agriculture to guarantee food security,” he said.
