The Moderator-general, Reformed Presbyterian Church Of Nigeria (RPCN), Rt. Rev. Uduma Chima has called on Nigerians to cooperate with the federal government and the Central Bank of Nigeria in the bid to overhaul the financial policies, especially in the use and flow of our currency notes.
The clergy said working with the apex financial institution will bring economic reform and it will be in the interests of the entire nation.
This was contained in a message to Mark the 2022 Christmas celebration
issued From The Media Directorate, RPCN, and was signed by Dr. Joseph N. Chukwu Head of the Directorate, and made available to the media in Abakaliki.
Rt. Rev. Uduma further urged the electorate to say No to corruption even as he advised politicians to maintain peace as they campaign during the Yuletide.
The statement, “Beloved people of God, on this all-important global event of the Christiandom, I bring greetings to you from the General Assembly of the Reformed Presbyterian Church of Nigeria, in the name of our King and Saviour Jesus Christ.
“The birth of Jesus Christ is the best thing that has ever happened to humanity as it marks the beginning and assurance of the salvation of mankind from eternal damnation (Matt.1:21). We are also celebrating because the fore-runner Angel had announced that it should be so(Luke 2:10).
“Christmas,, therefore is an occasion for thankfulness and gratitude to the Almighty God for giving us a Saviour and bringing light to our hitherto dark and sinful world. This calls for total reflection on our lives and walking with God to make amends where necessary.
“Beloved in the Lord, as we approach the 2023 general elections which the electioneering campaigns are going on even in this Christmas period, let us put God and God alone at the center of the entire process and activities to enthrone just and godly governments manned by just and Godly people.
This has become important because when the righteous is on the throne, the people rejoice.
“As Christmas and the joy it brings is a celebration for all people, government leadership should also be for all. Let us be accommodative and considerate in the process. God-fearing people are men and women of good reports devoid of corruption and corrupt tendencies. Let us boldly say “NO” to corrupt politicians for the sake of our country. We should not play selfish politics with our present and future.
“Let me encourage everybody to cooperate with the federal government and the Central Bank of Nigeria in the bid to overhaul the financial policies, especially in the use and flow of our currency notes.
“The Reformed PCN supports fully every effort being made to rescue and revive our economy from this present moribund state.
“Let me also appeal to our security agencies, the governments, and indeed everyone to ensure sound security during and after the yuletide season. Maximum security is possible when we yield to the dictates of love, holiness, and righteousness of God and not trusting in our capacities as people and government for”except the Lord keeps a city, in vain does the watchmen keep awake.
“Finally, as we travel home from places, let us drive safely. As we spend on our needs, let us spend wisely and as we celebrate, let us do so remembering tomorrow and with eternity in view.
