The Association of Southern Nigeria Christian Elders’ Forum (SON¬CEF) has called on the federal government to know the health status of President Muhammadu Buhari.

In a statement signed by its Chairman and the Secretary, Felix Ekiye said, the Christian elders “are disturbed by the unstable state of the nation as a result of different agitations, threats and quit notices.
Ekiye further pressed on with a plea,
“We urge the governors and members of the National Assembly to speak and act boldly to defend and protect the citizens. We note that the redemption of Nigeria now does not only require mere meetings and simple prayers, it requires concerted actions”.
The Christian body also condemned the merging of Christian Religious Knowledge with National Values and Ethics in the curriculum of schools.
“We warn that any such surreptitious act could adversely affect the unity and stability of Nigeria”.
