The Third Session of the Twenty Fourth Synod of the Diocese of Ondo, Church of Nigeria Anglican Communion has ended with a call on the federal government to find a lasting solution to the escalating inflation in the country.

In a Communique at the end of the session, the Synod called on government at all levels to introduce measures aimed at cushioning the evil effects of the galloping inflation.

Synod also condemned the unending hardship suffered by Nigerians and the worsening socio-economic climate in the country as a result of brain drain resulting from citizens migration to foreign land in search of greener pastures.

Synod further condemned the intractable problems of kidnapping, ritual killings, banditry, terrorism and other forms of insecurity and the seeming helplessness of the Nigeria Government in tackling the hydra headed monster.

The Synod lamented the continued kidnap of school children which has become an abnormal occurrence in the country and called on government to stem the tide of this negative phenomenon.

It further called on the federal government to restructure Nigeria and urgently allow devolution of powers to allow States to resource control to ensure meaningful and competitive development.

The Synod decried the alarming rate at which Nigeria crude oil is being stolen almost on daily basis by thieves in a cleverly coordinated manner and calls on government to arrest this economic sabotage that is fast threatening the economic survival of the Nation.

Dwelling on the theme of the Synod; which is, “DIVINE OWNERSHIP: “THE MAN AND THE MEANS,” Synod admitted that the church needs to be reminded of Divine ownership; as it affects the entire Christian race dealing with the acquisition of wealth and it’s management.

Further, Synod urged the church to embark seriously on deemphasizing the menace of material acquisition particularly in a manner which has impacted negatively on the entire fabric of the society.

The Synod advised the church to avoid injustice, wickedness against fellow human, oppression, rebellion against God, contaminated worship, hypocrisy, unrighteousness in whatever form, syncretism and all other ills if it wants to be to guide against God’s law on contentment.

The Lord Bishop of Ondo Diocese of the Anglican Communion, “The RT, Rev’d Stephen Adeniran Oni, who presided over the Synod at Saint Peter’s Anglican Church, Araromi-Obu in Odigbo local government area of Ondo State noted that God is the ultimate ownership of all things in the world, hence the need for all to be contented with what we have and serve God diligently and honestly.

In a Sermon at the Thanksgiving; The Most Revd . Professor George Latunji Lasebikan (Rtd) noted that God who is the ownership does not accept rivalry or competition with him.

He called on Nigerians to stop limiting God as well as themselves; stressing that God shows ownership by ensuring that everything human needed is provided within his reach if such Man knows the means around him/her and utilize it meaningfully.
