Methodist Church Seeks Empowerment of Herdsmen
Methodist Church Nigeria, Diocese of Onitsha, Eastern Gateway, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to empower herdsmen in the area of education.
Bishop of the Diocese, Rt. Rev. Livinus Biereonwu Onugha, made the call while urging Buhari to consolidate on some of the policies of former President, Goodluck Jonathan, like the education of the herdsmen.
Speaking during the 16th Annual Diocesan Synod, 2018 held at the All Saints Methodist Church, Onitsha, the Bishop expressed worry over the state of insecurity in Nigeria.
Onugha said something urgent should be done in the area of security, health, power, roads and employment, to save the nation from total collapse.
He also admonished Buhari to stop blaming Jonathan’s administration for the woes of the country.
According to Onugha, “It still beats my imagination how the All Progressives Congress, APC, government of President Muhammadu Buhari is not consolidating on the legacies of Goodluck Jonathan who started the process of educating the herdsmen, by establishing schools for them.
“At this digital age, the APC government is encouraging herdsmen to continue to wander from place to place in rearing flocks.
“The core north has governed this nation more than any other but unfortunately, we have more uneducated youths in the north than any other place in Nigeria.”
