KACRAN Advocates for Peace and Unity

By: Michael Mike

The Kulen Allah Cattle Rearers Association of Nigeria (KACRAN) has urged its members nationwide to refrain from engaging in any form of violence but rather foster peace and unity within the country.

The National President, KACRAN, Khalil Muhammad Bello, made the plea in a statement made available to journalists.

Bello insisting that KACRAN is as an organisation committed to harmony and progress, however strongly condemned any acts of vandalism and lawlessness, noting that such behavior poses a threat to the nation’s fragile security and contradicts our values as a civilized society.

He added that: “KACRAN acknowledges the challenging times Nigeria faces, particularly about insecurity. It is during such critical times that the solidarity of all Nigerians, irrespective of ethnic or religious backgrounds, is paramount. We must unite to prevent any actions that could further destabilize our nation.

“With a focus on enhancing our security system and maintaining peace, KACRAN calls upon its members to avoid demonstrations. While peaceful protests are a constitutional right, there exists the risk of such events being co-opted by malicious individuals seeking to cause disorder and damage.

“Furthermore, KACRAN wishes to express its profound appreciation for the North East Development Commission (NEDC) and its extensive efforts to implement development projects and support internally displaced persons in the region. This commendation stems from positive feedback from our members and reflects the commission’s dedication to President Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s vision of rebuilding and restoring hope in the affected areas. The NEDC is indeed trying towards the recovery process in the region”.

KACRAN urged the Federal Government of Nigeria to increase the funding for NEDC to enable them discharge their mandate efficiently.

He said: “We also acknowledge the exceptional leadership of His Excellency, Borno State Governor Professor Babagana Umara Zulum. Governor Zulum’s initiative of establishing a committee to foster peace between cattle rearers and farmers in the state is laudable. The committee’s mandate to address the root causes of conflicts and to promote longstanding harmony in Borno State is a testament to his exemplary governance”.

Bello however called on other state governors to emulate Governor Zulum’s proactive approach, stating that: “His transformative projects in Borno State serve as a model for leadership not only in Nigeria but globally.”

KACRAN reaffirmed its unwavering commitment to assist the federal, state, and local governments in seeking lasting solutions to Nigeria’s security challenges, calling on members to extend their full support and cooperation to achieve our collective goals of peace, unity, and development.

FG to revamp orphanages in FCT

By: Michael Mike

The Federal Government has announced its plans to revamp orphanages in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), elevating them to international standards.

The Mandate Secretary of FCT Women Affairs Secretariat, Hon. Adedayo Benjamins-Laniyi, stated this at an event in Abuja held to commemorate the International Orphanage Day at the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), The Lord’s Place Parish, in Abuja, entitled; “The Balm in Gilead’.

She said: “In a bid to provide specialised care and support for children in vulnerable situations, particularly those with disabilities, the Secretariat has launched a comprehensive initiative. The project aims to redefine and upscale the services provided by orphanages across the FCT.”

Key components of the initiative include a thorough review of existing orphanages by a ministerial committee, focusing on recertification and adoption processes within the city. A dedicated committee has been tasked with conducting on-site inspections of certified orphanages under the FCT Secretariat.

She said, “The overarching goal of the initiative is to revamp interventions related to child protection and combating violence against children. This includes efforts to align local laws with international standards, particularly those outlined in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

“The initiative seeks to enhance institutional reforms within the FCT administration, prioritizing sectors such as education, health, nutrition, and socioeconomic development. The aim is to establish a new standard of engagement between government entities and NGOs operating in the realm of child welfare”, she explained.

Through these concerted efforts, the FCT aims to provide a more supportive and nurturing environment for orphaned children, ensuring their rights and well-being are safeguarded effectively.

Funke Olorungbami, who was the convener of the event and the founder of Hospital, Orphanage and Prison Evangelism-HOPE Ministry said the event is also targeted at creating awareness for the need for Nigerians to be more deliberate in their show of love to the orphans in the country especially emotionally.

While commending the caregivers and managers of orphanage homes, she urged the government to show more empathy for the children and promote policies that would help upgrade their standard of living.

“Today we have medical awareness, we have a healing therapy for the children and Bible distribution for them because we believe the word of God does a better cleansing”, she said.

The Pastor of the Lord’s Place Parish, RCCG, Wuse 2, Pastor Ola Omosebi, stressed the need to continually project hope to children in orphanages across the country so they could have a sense of belonging.

“Being in those orphanage homes alone is secluded. These children need exposure and it’s okay for us to have gatherings like this where they will socialise”, he added.

In her remarks, the Director and founder of Facado Orphanage, Mrs Ngozi Judge,, lamented poor funding for the orphanage homes. She urged government and charitable Nigerians to help support the welfare of children in orphanage homes.

“People donate food stuff like rice and beans but that’s not enough to make a meal. When we go to the market, the high cost of things makes it very difficult for us to get enough. We need support in their education, feeding and health,” she added.
