Synod of the All Nations Evangelical Mission (ANEM) has called on the federal government to be more transparent in fighting the war against corruption at all levels.
It made the call in a communiqué signed by the General Overseer of ANEM, Arc. Bishop Yiman Orkwar, issued yesterday after the Fresh Oil International Convention in Makurdi.
The Synod, however, commended the federal government for its fight against corruption, but maintained that there “is need to step up the fight and to be more open to ensure that it is carried to all sections of the society.”
ANEM Synod also urged the federal government to look into the deplorable condition of highways and other infrastructure across the nation, with a view to repairing them.
According to the communiqué, the synod also approved and ratified nomination of three new Bishops for three regions.
The communiqué read in part: “Synod unanimously approved and ratified the nomination of three Bishops-elect for three regions to further strengthen the growth and expansion of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in the ministry.
“Synod emphasised the opening up of new churches and resolved that efforts at evangelising the world should be intensified through the evangelism week programme and all forms of distractions should be discouraged.”
While commending the successful launch of the Late Archbishop Dyegeh Trust Fund for Evangelism and Missions, the Synod approved by-laws as enabling instrument for the management of the Trust Fund.
It also praised the governor of Benue state, Dr. Samuel Ortom, for his efforts in the enforcement of the anti-open grazing law, and called for support and encouragement from the people of the state and other Nigerians to ensure full Implementation of the law.
The Synod applauded United States President, Donald Trump, for recognising Jerusalem as the capital of the nation of Israel, and called on other countries of the world to follow suit.
