The diocese of the Church of Nigeria (Anglican Communion), Enugu, had on Thursday chided President Goodluck Jonathan’s administration, saying the government seemed incapable of tackling the security challenges in the country.

Bishop of the Diocese, and South East Chairman of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN), the Rt Revd Emmanuel Olisa Chukwuma made this assertion while delivering his Presidential Address/Charge to the Second Session of the Fifteenth Synod of the Diocese of Enugu held at St Bartholomew's Church in Asata, Enugu.

According to him, there was nothing indicative of an effort towards "combating the growing national tragedy of an escalating insecurity".

Bishop Chukwuma who expressed regrets over the murder of the Kwara State Commissioner of Police, Mr Chinwike Asadu sometime ago in his home town of Enugu said it was a confirmation of the worsening security situation in Nigeria.

He observed that if a high profile law-enforcement officer like the late Commissioner could be so callously and easily gunned down, it meant that nobody was safe anymore.
