Speaking on Sunday in a statement in Lokoja, the Chairman of CAN in the state, John Ibenu, described the payment of salaries as a “pressing.”

”We call on Kogi Government to do all it can to address the issue of staff salaries, pensions and gratuity, judiciary and other pressing issues to ameliorate the suffering of the people of the state,” he said.

Ibenu, who is the Bishop of Chapel of Freedom Int’l Church, Lokoja, called on Christians to take after the exemplary life of Jesus Christ “which is love, sacrifice and forgiveness for a better society.’’

This is as he described Easter as the solemn celebration of the highest sacrifice made by Christ by accepting to die for mankind.
