Minna—The 10th Synod of the Diocese of the Anglican Communion, Niger State weekend, rose from its session calling on the Federal Government to take decisive steps to end the wanton destruction of lives and properties particularly in Benue, Nassarawa, Plateau, Taraba, Enugu, Zamfara and Adamawa states by armed bandits.

In a communique issued at the end of the first session synod at the Cathedral Church of St. Peter, Minna, Niger State signed by Bishop Daniel A Yisa, the synod also expressed concern over the rising unemployment among the youths in the country and the low purchasing power of workers.

These developments according to the Synod had brought untold hardship not only to the youths and civil servants but to all Nigerians as a whole.

The communiqué therefore called on the Federal Government to pursue with renewed vigour the settlement of nomadic pastoralists in self contained permanent ranches without infringing on the farmlands of the native communities in the country and should intensify efforts in the routing of Boko Haram terrorists.
