An interfaith group under the aegis of National Coalition of Interfaith Group of Nigeria (NCIGN) has decried the silence of President Muhammadu Buhari to rejig the nation’s security architecture over the growing insecurity in the country.

The group particularly lamented president’s inaction over sack of service chiefs and implementation of some far-reaching resolutions of the National Assembly on insecurity very disturbing.

To this end, the interfaith organisation, in a statement, Wednesday, by its National Coordinator, Sheikh Mohammed Ibrahim and Co-Coordinator, Bishop John Adebayo, has reeled out six prayer points for Nigerians of all faith to take before God in prayers for intervention in the security problems.

Noting that the issue of security of life and property was “deteriorating on an hourly basis”, the group decried “Mr President’s deliberate refusal to act according to the demands of Nigerians.”

“We found President Muhammad Buhari’s inaction over the sack of the service chiefs and other recommendations on security very disturbing and abnormal hence, we passionately appeal to Nigerians of all faith all over the world to take one hour of their days starting today, Wednesday, December 16, 2020, to pray for God’s intervention”, it said.

“We issue this statement to state our position on a pertinent national issue that has become embarrassing to our dear country and which has put us to shame even among our immediate brothers in the West African sub region.

“We have become a laughing stock even among smaller nations that used to depend on us as big brother.

“It is the issue of security of life and property which is deteriorating on an hourly basis, and Mr President’s deliberate refusal to act according to the demands of Nigerians.

“As people in the active service of God from all faith and denominations, we have cogent reasons to believe that fervent prayers seeking the face of God can restore peace in our dear country,” it said.

It, however, said: “We believe that Mr President may have been hypnotized by strong forces who are benefiting from the current status quo of insecurity and lack of performance.”

“It is our stand that it is not normal for a whole country to be speaking with one voice that the service chiefs should not only be sacked but also that the entire security architecture be rejigged, and Mr President would remain adamant and unconcerned,” it said.
