    The Primate of the Church of Nigeria, Anglican Communion, Archbishop Henry Ndukuba, has said the economic and security challenges confronting Nigeria indicate that the country is under economic and security siege.

    Speaking at a media briefing in Abuja ahead of the Diocese of Abuja’s Second Session of the 12th Synod billed to be held today, Archbishop Ndukuba expressed deep concern over the prevailing situation exacerbated by rampant corruption in the country.

    He called for improved remuneration and welfare packages for journalists and media workers to combat fake news and enhance media professionalism.

    Archbishop Ndukuba drew attention to the pervasive corruption and looting of Nigeria’s resources, painting a picture of a nation besieged by internal and external forces.

    He lamented the insecurity plaguing communities, attributing some attacks to foreign elements while acknowledging internal collusion.

    He said the rising cases of suicide and other distressing challenges showed that there is an urgent need for divine intervention.

    “The situation in which we live is like a siege, where you cannot travel freely,” he said.

    He also urged the federal government to give more attention to modular refineries to address the perennial fuel scarcity in Nigeria, suggesting it as a solution to the country’s energy challenges.
