An Anglican Archbishop, Isaac Nwobia, has urged the federal government to convene a national dialogue to address issues of insecurity in the country
Mr Nwobia, who is the Archbishop/Bishop of Diocese of Isiala Ngwa South (Aba Province), made the call during the 4th Synod of the diocese at St. Peter’s Cathedral Owerrinta, Abia State on Thursday.
The archbishop, while speaking with reporters during the opening session of the Synod, said that national dialogue was important, as the communication gap could be responsible for some of the present security challenges in Nigeria.
“The president should summon us, either as a meeting or a confab, so that people can say why they are annoyed.
“The solution should be that we need to sit down, dialogue and sort things out,” he said.
The cleric condemned the destruction of some of the nation’s security facilities.
