Wale Oyewale Ibadan

THE Ibadan Varsity Christian Union Alumni Fellowship has tasked the President, Major General (retd.), on the need to resist the pressure to subject citizens to religious fundamentalism, ethnic rivalry and economic hardship.

The Christian body also urged the Buhari-led regime to heed the call for good governance, restructuring and eschew corruption and tribal sentiments.

The IVCU made the call on Saturday in a communique issued at the end of its 60th anniversary held at the Chapel of Resurrection, University of Ibadan.

The International President of IVCU Alumni Fellowship, Dr Tunde Ajala, who presented the communique to the media, noted that the challenges currently besetting the nation were the ripple effects of bad leadership.

Ajala said, “Government must commit to the duty to rid the nation of self-acclaimed religious fundamentalist groups such as Boko Haram, Islamic State of West Africa and Fulani militia herdsmen. The Nigerian Government needs to pay more earnest heed now to the cry of millions of Nigerians for restructuring.”
