…Says, “Govt far from people, only see them in siren;”
…“Christians expect to live holy life exemplified by Jesus Christ.”

The Bishop of Anglican Diocese Church, Zaria, Reverend Ishaya Baba, has urged Christians to live holy lives as exemplified by Jesus Christ.
Rev. Baba, who stressed this at the first session of the 5-Synod Services held in St. Andrew’s Anglican Church G.R.A. Zaria, on Sunday, also implored Nigerians to be mindful of their consciences when electing candidates of their choice, in the upcoming 2023 general elections.
The 5-Synod Service, with the theme, ‘The love of Christ, the food for Biblical fruitfulness,’ is a Christian Assembly organised by the Anglican Diocese Church, annually, for thanksgiving, deliberations and discussions on the driven power of Jesus Christ and the achievement recorded so far by the church.
Speaking shortly after the first plenary session of the program, the bishop also advocated for “truthful love and unity” among Christians and non-Christian faithful alike.
Reverend Ishaya Baba enjoined religious faithful to always strengthen their worship to God and do what is right in all circumstances.
In his sermons, the Bishop of Anglican Communion tasked Christian to use the period as sober reflections.
He cautioned the youths against indulging in political thuggery or any act that may destroy their future.
This year’s Synod Session greased the attendance of Bishops, Pastors and Reverends of the Anglican Diocese Church within and outside Kaduna State.
The Bishop said the government is very far away from the people, that the only time the people notice the presence of the government is the sound of the siren when they are passing by.
He lamented that the economy of the country is a mirage, and called on the government to pay very close attention to it, saying, “For this is what really make us as a nation.”
On security matters, the Bishop said, in any nation the principal thing is the security of life and protection of property of the citizens.
On ASUU, the Anglican Bishop said for 7 years now, the education sector in Nigeria has become a casualty in the face of the huge political failure and economic challenge.
The Most Revd Ishaya Baba concluded his charge by advising the youths on election matters, and urged all believers in Christ to vote wisely.
