Pope Francis, the Supreme Pontiff, has promised the Federal Government that he is ready to assist the country in resolving the country’s persisting security situation.
The Holy Father, who made the pledge as he received a letter of credence from Nigerian Ambassador to the Holy See, Ambassador Paul Oga Adikwu, said he will work to end the country’s and Sub-Saharan Africa’s security issue.
The Pope praised President Muhammadu Buhari’s efforts thus far in combating banditry, terrorism, and other types of criminal activity that are wreaking havoc on the country.
He committed to be personally active in praying for the nation, seeing Nigeria’s current crisis as a global one.
“The Holy Father, Pope Francis, has shown willingness to work with Nigeria to address the security difficulties that the Sub-Saharan area is currently facing.
“Pope Francis respects President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration’s efforts to address security concerns in various sections of the country.
“The Holy Father stated that the crisis is not only a Nigerian one, but a global one, and that he will personally be involved in praying for Nigeria to overcome the situation,” according to the Nigerian Embassy in the Holy See, Vatican City.
