    The Catholic Bishop of Ekiti Diocese, Most Rev. Felix Ajakaye, says contrary to the belief by some people that God had forsaken Nigeria, the people of the country should learn to promote peaceful co-existence and make restitution with God as He is still with Nigeria.

    Ajakaye at a sermon yesterday urged all Nigerians, irrespective of status or political belief, to seek the face of God, optimising that this year’s governorship elections in Ekit and Osun States and next year’s general elections would be free and devoid of bloodshed.

    In the sermon at a funeral service in St. Augustine’s Catholic Church, Oye -Ekiti in honour of Princess Mary Adegun, mother of the immediate past Chief Medical Director of Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital, Dr. Patrick Adegun, the bishop stressed the need for every Nigerian to cultivate the habit of praying fervently, peacemaking and conflict resolution as a duty.
