Anglican group renews call for confab

From Nigeria-

 THE Anglican Christian Fellowship of Nigeria (ACFN) Sunday joined the call on President Goodluck Jonathan to immediately convene a national dialogue in order to salvage the country from “imminent collapse”.

   ACFN, which is an arm of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), warned that unless Jonathan engages major stakeholders of the country in an exhaustive national discourse, his administration’s efforts at ensuring peaceful co-existence among the populace may be an illusion.

   The body premised its position on the series of security, social,economic and religious challenges confronting the country in recent times and declared that Nigeria has been existing in a “forced union”.

   The ACFN President, Henshaw Adetoye, who spoke at a press conference in Ijebu-Ode, Ogun State said: “We are in a forced union. The Yoruba are being forced to stay with the Hausa. The Ndigbo are being forced to stay with the Yoruba. Things cannot continue this way. We will continue to pray that the theme of this convention will manifest in this country”.

   The briefing was held to highlight activities lined-up for the maiden national convention of the body.
