The Ibadan Varsity Christian Union Alumni Association (IVCUAF) has called on the federal government to rid Nigeria of self acclaimed religious fundamentalist groups.
IVCUAF at a press conference addressed by its international resident, Dr. Tunde Emmanuel Ajala, held at the Chapel of Resurrection, University of Ibadan, Saturday also asked the federal government to yield to the call for restructuring of Nigeria for greater and better political, social and economic efficiency, growth and development.
The association at its REUNION 2020 with the “Theme : The Balanced Christian”, said it is now time for the Nigerian government to be sincere with its constitutional duty and rid the country of fundamentalist groups such as the Boko Haram, Islamic State of West Africa (ISWA) Fulani militia herdsmen among others.
It stated that the time has come for the association to put what its members ” have learnt and successfully practiced over the last decades at the service of the federal government of Nigeria to help it resolve the growing myriads of challenges and seemingly intractable problems daily facing Nigeria and threatening her corporate existence and priceless integrity.
“The Nigerian government has, and must commit more sincerely to the constitutional duty to rid the nation of self-acclaimed religious fundamentalist groups such as Boko Haram, Islamic State of West Africa (ISWA), Fulani militia herdsmen, etc., that are freely roaming the Nigerian geographic territory with impunity and abandonment, visiting their venomous ire and brand of jungle justice on peoples of faith, decency and modernity,” it said.
