1.           As a Mission Statement, the NCEF is committed to the Unity of Nigeria and the duty of the Leadership of the Nation to ensure that this Unity is not sacrificed on the altar of sectarian interests and biases.

2.         In its exercise of the Biblical "Issachar Mandate," the National Christian Elders Forum (NCEF) is purposed to draw national attention, as Senior Citizens, to the issues as they stand in Nigeria at present. The NCEF Press Release of July 2017, titled Correct Assessment of Situation in Nigeria, presently under contention by some Muslim groups, was sent as "non-violent communication" (NVC) to keep Nigerians abreast with the disturbing threats packaged no doubt, by Islamists (political Islam), to destroy NIGERIA as one indivisible and all inclusive Union State under GOD. NCEF position still stands on Truth as the only pillar of national strength and unity.

The House of Representatives is presently considering what perhaps qualifies as the most dangerous piece of legislation to come before the National Assembly since the return of civilian rule in 1999. It is the NGO Regulation Bill sponsored by the Deputy Majority Leader of the House, Umar Buba Jibril. The bill is stunning in its audacity, far-reaching in its scope and a danger to elective government in Nigeria. It should not be allowed to pass.

"Christians are encouraged to speak out and take a stand for Justice, Equality and Fairness in the nation.  All Nigerian citizens are free and equal." -  NCEF 

"I freed a thousand slaves. I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves" - Harriet Tubman

The National Christian Elders Forum (NCEF) was at the Senate on Tuesday 25th July 2017 for a meeting with a delegation of Southern and Middle Belt Christian Senators.

The NCEF in a 32 page Confidential document expressed regret that Nigeria has been grappling with various forms of colonization from inception.

First, there was the Fulani colonization of the Hausas which was succeeded by the British colonization of the entire nation. After independence in 1960, the nation is grappling with neo-colonization in which the Islamists are attempting to make Nigeria a colony of the Fulanis through Jihad.

It is on this basis that the NCEF developed the theme, NIGERIA: ONCE FREED, FOREVER FREE.

Perhaps for a very good reason, President Muhammadu Buhari, the Sultan of Sokoto, Saád Abubakar, and a Maiduguri-based Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ibrahim Saleh recently made the list of the world’s 50 most influential Muslim leaders. The Muslim 500, an annual publication of the World’s 500 most influential Muslims, recognised the three Nigerian leaders in its 7th edition published late last year. The publication measured influence some Muslims have on other Muslims to include: any person who has the power (be it cultural, ideological, financial, political or otherwise) to make a change that will have a significant impact on the Muslim world.

STAGE 1: INFILTRATION

Muslims begin moving to non-Muslim countries in increasing numbers and the beginning of cultural conflicts are visible, though often subtle 

First migration wave to non-Muslim “host” country.Appeal for humanitarian tolerance from the host society.Attempts to portray Islam as a peaceful & Muslims as victims of misunderstanding and racism (even though Islam is not a ‘race’).High Muslim birth rate in host country increase Muslim population.Mosques used to spread Islam and dislike of host country & culture.Calls to criminalize “Islamophobia” as a hate crime.Threatened legal action for perceived discrimination.Offers of “interfaith dialogue” to indoctrinate non-Muslims.

The Federal Government on Thursday bowed to pressure and directed the Nigerian Educational Research and Development Council (NERDC) to separate the Christian Religious Knowledge and Islamic Religious Knowledge subjects in the basic education curriculum.

The grouping of IRK and CRK under the Civil Education in the new curriculum by the NERDC had generated controversy in the last few months with religious leaders calling for their separate teaching.

A report released wednesday by the United States Department of State has disclosed that 75 per cent of deaths caused by terrorist attacks across the globe world occurred in Nigeria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria; and Pakistan.

The National Christian Elders Forum (NCEF) has viewed with much concern and apprehension, the issues currently unfolding in the country. The Christian Elders are saddened that once again, the nation is being driven to a needless and mindless conflict that if not well managed, could conflagrate into war, destruction, and threaten the cohesiveness of the Nigerian State.

The Calvary Hephzibah Full Gospel Church in Manchester, Britain, in Collaboration with 4-Square Gospel Church Asokoro Abuja and King's Mission Centre, Lagos, is calling on all Nigerian Christians to join in a Global 40 Day Prayer and Fasting for Nigeria.

The situation in Nigeria demands Divine intervention. As Christians we need to unite and cry out to The Lord to intervene in the situation in our Country. The nation is facing on the one hand, the surreptitious, steady, and unrelenting plan to Islamize Nigeria, and on the other hand we have corruption in the highest places to contend with, kidnapping left and right, and many other societal ills.
