The respected clerics who described the move by the federal government as an 'anti-life policy'  after the plenary meeting of the province held in Akure, the Ondo State capital on Wednesday, “condemned the recent move by the Minister of Health, Prof Adewole in collaboration with the foreign agencies to commit the federal government to increasing the culture of contraception and subsequently, abortion among our people.” 
According to Vanguard, the communiqué signed by its President and Archbishop of Ibadan, Gabriel Abegunrin and Secretary, Bishop Felix Ajakaye noted that “the policy is being done all in the name of providing better maternal health and empowering our people.” 
The communiqué reads: “We see such moves as deceptive to our people and harmful to moral values and we ask Nigerians to reject them.”
The clerics also lauded President Muhammadu Buhari's efforts at ridding the country of corruption and for exposing corrupt Nigerians in his anti-graft war, advising that the president must institutionalize the fight for it to outlast his administration and become deeply entrenched in the system.
