Archbishop Nicholas Okoh on Friday led some Anglican clerics to a closed door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Speaking with State House correspondents at the end of  the meeting, he stated  that the issues discussed included the herdsmen attacks and killings across the country and oil pipeline vandalism in the Niger Delta region.

He said: “We told him many things but part of it we are all looking for solution to issues of the herdsmen, issue of vandalism on security in one way or the other because the people are asking us and we want to have explanation for the people whom we lead.
Okoh said the president ‘s response was very favourable as  he gave them detailed explanations of what he is doing to ensure that these things are solved so they have hope and also expressed  optimistic that things will improve in the country in the next one year.
He added that, “We believe that so far its been okay because of the difficulties of the time and between now and the next one year we are looking forward to something more direct now.
“Something that will get to the people easily, so far for the first year it is trying to clear the table, prepare the place, make the work move forward.
“We look forward to a better 2016-2017 budget year that you can see that with the long delay in budget, the issue of padding we were not able to begin easily.
“So the next one we know will be better that is why we are talking in that way, its okay for now but it could be better .
