The Primate of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion) Rev. Henry Ndukuba says appointees of government should be given free room to operate to put in their best in building a new Nigeria.

Ndukuba made the call in an interview with newsmen on Monday on the sideline of the 10th anniversary celebration of Advent Cable Network of Nigeria (ACNN) a televangelism arm of the church.

He said that in spite of the economic challenges, Nigeria at 63 was not doing badly when compared to other great countries today when they were 63.

The cleric, however, said that the economic challenges bedeviling the country such as insecurity, political instability, epileptic currency and power supply among others must be addressed.

“The assemblage of the team that is in place now must be given free hand and opportunity to bring in their knowledge.

“The technocrats cannot work if they will not be given the free hand to operate; they must be allowed to handle thing’s professionally.

“Politicians should be mindful of the welfare of the people, no matter how they get into positions or who they think will be the sustaining power, the life and future of the country is at stake.

“We all must salvage it together, let us work together and do our best; the best place to be is in Nigeria and with all God has blessed us with, Nigeria is destined to be a great nation,” he said.

Also speaking, Archbishop Nicholas Okoh, a former primate of the church, urged the Nigerian youths not to relent in their bid to rebuild Nigeria.

He said that there so many clogs in Nigeria wheel of progress which must be removed if the country must make speedy progress.

The cleric commended the efforts made by the youths in the 2023 general elections urging them not to relent in their bid to change the narrative.

“It is therefore a challenge to our youths for them to see that their future is better than what it is now.

“If they want to succeed in life, they should not give give up but takeover from the class of people leading now who have nothing to lose.

“They pensioners, people who have earned gratuities, some are chiefs, and have been honoured in so many places; it is the youths who want to be promoted, marry, get degrees or be mentioned in special citations.

“These are the people who need to struggle and move forward and they should also struggle to move forward in politics,” he said.
