Minna – Bishop Martins Uzuokwu of Minna Catholic Diocese on Friday called on Nigerians to use the Easter period to seek God’s intervention toward tackling obstacles on the path to progress and prosperity.
Uzuokwu told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Minna that Nigerians should particularly pray for God’s intervention in the nation’s economy, security and corrupt tendencies by those in power.
“We must seek divine intervention to pull Nigeria out of its economic recession.
“We must also seek divine intervention toward ending security issues that have discouraged some investors from patronising Nigeria and even made it impossible for farmers to go to the fields,” he said.
He called on the Federal Government to provide a conducive environment that would attract investors, noting that the nation was blessed with abundant human and natural resources that were wasting away.
The Bishop also urged government to introduce policies that would promote modern farming so as to improve food production, feed the nation and even export.
He advised Nigerians to support the efforts toward tackling corruption so as to conserve resources to improve the welfare of the masses.
