He said: “Indecent dressing has become a serious challenge in our contemporary church; pastors should as a matter of urgency address that problem.

, “Similarly, our youths are engaging themselves in illicit drugs. I implore families and society as a whole to check this and other societal ills. We should preach peace and live peacefully wherever we find ourselves.”
