Kohima, Dec.11 (EMN): The 85th Sumi Baptist Akukuhou Kuqhakulu (SBAK) Nito Mount, triennial conference under the theme, ‘Jesus the Living Water’ was held from Dec.8 to the 10th at Tsutoho Baptist Church.
Exhorting the congregation on Sunday devotional service, secretary of Land Resources and Finance dept. Y Kikheto Sema extended strong support towards clean election campaign by the church. He also opined that “the church should first check within its premises to see whether selections/elections of executive secretaries in various church associations were clean.”
Clean election should not be only about state assembly elections but it should first begin within the church, village councils, VDBs, students’ unions. These roots have to be cleaned first,’ said Kikheho.
He noted that the campaign on clean election itself has become costly and wondered whether the church was taking any step on this issue, and asserted that “we should all see that if elections are to be conducted, it should be held peacefully and at the same time we should also pray for a peaceful solution to the Naga political issue.”
He challenged the churches to set an example of unity amongst itself and then propagate the message to political parties, Naga National Political Groups and the society. As a Christians, he said it is for the believers to make peace and unity as a mission.
He also felt that when there was relative peace prevailing among the NNPGs and the society, it was an opportune time to reconcile and pray for a better generation.
Pointing out that Nagaland is blessed with rich biodiversity and fertile soil, Kikheho lamented that dignity of labour is vanishing.
Clean air, good climatic conditions and organic produces in rural areas were something that urban populace yearn for; therefore, he said there should not be a mad rush among the rural people towards urban settlement.
