Christian Group Asks Tinubu To Alleviate Sufferings Of Nigerians

August 21, 2023

A non-governmental organisation under the auspices of Newphase Gospel Club, an arm of Newphase Gospel Church, has appealed to President Bola Tinubu to introduce policies that would alleviate the sufferings of the less privileged Nigerians.

The senior pastor of the church, Matthew Agada who made this known yesterday during the donation of food items and toiletries to orphans in Mararaba, Nasarawa State, said the initiative was in line with the understanding of God’s plan and purpose for humanity, which emphasizes love as enshrined in the Bible.

Agada who also advised that policies meant for alleviating suffering should be implemented selflessly, explained that Nigerians, especially Christians should live by example, especially by showing love to those who do not have hope.

“Serving God is love, the Bible says he sent his only begotten Son, because of love into this world. And Christ came and expressed that love with His whole life, the Bible says he went about doing good, it is the footsteps of Christ that we are following.

“The best way to prove that you have accepted the gospel of Christ is to practically use the gospel. And that’s by showing love to those that need to be cared for, they need food and other important issues.

“Let other Nigerians emulate what we’re doing, the more you give, the more you care for other people, the more you feed other people who don’t have enough to eat. The more you clothe the naked you are fulfilling the gospel of the Kingdom of God.

“The more you do it, the more God blesses you, so I want to encourage you, every other person that has the capacity. You do not have to be excessively rich before you support those who are in need. At every level, people can contribute particularly,” he said.

The patron of Newphase Gospel Club, Dr Noal Ekele said donating to the orphanage will help the owner to continue to provide for the children under her care.

He said the initiative followed the ministry of Christ, who was going about doing good to people in different areas.

“We want to join our sister to care for the people who have no father and mother, is not good to leave her alone, as we have started, we’re going to places all over the world to care, especially for the needy, who are mostly orphans,” he said.

Ekele urged the government to do more by providing food for the needy in the society.

“Our call to the government is to look inward and outward to see that the needy are cared for, no matter how many programmes that they feel to do, poverty alleviation and food should come first,” he said.

The proprietor of the orphanage, Mrs Kaima Udeonu commended the church for the kind gesture.

She urged other individuals and organisations to support the orphans by providing food and school fees.
