Presbyterian Church Set Up Fund on Chibok girls
The Presbyterian Church of Nigeria has announced the setting up a special Fund in aid of victims of Boko Haram insurgency and other social upheavals.
This according to the Church is to aid the rehabilitation of the Chibok girls adopted in April 14 by the terrorist sect, Boko Haram from the Government College, Chibok, Borno State, when they are eventually rescued.
In a communiqué issued at the end of its biennial General Assembly meeting held in Calabar, Cross River State, the Church felt worried by the experiences the girls were passing through and the psychological trauma that could befall them when freed.
The Fund would serve as the Church’s contribution toward rehabilitating the girls and making them to fulfill their divine destinies.
The Church, however, lamented the seeming inability of Government to release the abducted Chibok girls and to ultimately contain the Boko Haram insurgency.
It warned that the issue should not be politicized unduly and that every well-meaning Nigerian should identify with the efforts of the State Security Agencies in fighting the Boko Haram security challenge.
It said that it was particularly disconcerting that despite the numerous inter-faith conferences and dialogues, the level of insurgency, religious intolerance, and recriminations remained on the increase.
