The bishop of the Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion, Owo Diocese, Stephen Fagbemi, has called on the Federal Government to address the issue of security challenges and other issues threatening the existence of the country before the 2023 general elections.

The cleric warned that failure to resolve the issues may not augur well for the country.

Fagbemi gave the warning while reading the Bishop’s Charge at the first session of the 14th Synod of Diocese of Owo Anglican Communion, held at the St. Paul’s Church, Ifon, headquarters of the Ose Local Government. The synod was themed “Chosen to proclaim”.

According to him, Nigeria has found itself in a most unfortunate state, to the extent that some were beginning to suggest that it is becoming a failed state as a result of the inability of the government to address the country’s problems.

He called on churches and individuals to commence a process of self-defense mechanism in the face of the present security threat to the country, adding that if urgent action is not taken by the government, the country may explode.
