The Catholic Bishop of Lafia Diocese, Most Rev. David Ajang, has urged the Federal Government to urgently take steps toward tackling hunger and the security challenges currently confronting the nation.

Ajang made the call on Sunday at a Thanksgiving Mass organised by the Nasarawa State Deputy Governor, Dr Emmanuel Akabe, held at St Aloysius Catholic Church, Doma.

The bishop said tackling insecurity and hunger would not only promote peace but would significantly improve the living standard of Nigerians.

“This is a critical time; security is a big problem and the second one is hunger.

”I think something is needed to be done” he said.

The cleric, who quoted various verses in the Bible, called on Christians and Nigerians in general to eschew evil, adding that such move would enable them inherit God’s kingdom.

Ajang also urged Nigerians to use their God’s given talents toward promoting peace and development in the nation.

He admonished Nigerians, especially the youths, to shun cyber and all forms of crime.

”Young people must desist from all forms of crime, that way our society will be better,” the bishop advised.

He urged Christians to regularly show gratitude to God at all times, to attract God’s favour and blessings.

The bishop assured the deputy governor of his support and constant prayers for God’s guidance as he support his principal in running the affairs of the state.
