The call for Interim National Government by some persons has been rejected by the Diocese of Umuahia, Anglican Communion.
This position was made known by Rt. Rev. Geoffrey Ibeabuchi, the Anglican Bishop of Umuahia Diocese while reading his presidential address at the 10th Synod of the Diocese ,held at St. Silas Anglican Church, Old Umuahia.
The Synod maintained that interim government has no place in the Nigerian constitution and therefore, should not be promoted by any right thinking individual or group.
The Synod also urged the Justices of the Supreme Court to maintain the ground of truth in the discharge of their duties, especially during the Presidential Election cases.
On the postponed of the national population and housing census, the Synod urged and encouraged Abians to still make themselves available to be counted whenever the census would be held.
The 10th Synod advised the incoming administration in the centre to be careful when taking decisions on fuel subsidy removal as according to the Synod , Nigerian citizens must not be subjected to untold suffering just like the miscalculated naira redesign.
The Church further advised all aggrieved candidates to remain peaceful and lawful while seeking redress in tribunals and Courts even as it charged the winners to be magnanimous in victory.
The church cautioned the incoming administration of Dr Alex Otti in Abia State against working with sycophants and failed administrators.
On the continued detention of the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), the Anglican Synod called for his release even as it appealed to Igbos to love one another as well as invest in Igbo land.
