The Catholic Action Nigeria (CAN) and the Catholic Media Practitioners’ Association of Nigeria (CAMPAN) have expressed concern over President Muhammadu Buhari’s failure to appoint a substantive Executive Secretary for the Nigerian Christian Pilgrims Commission (NCPC).

Lamenting that it has taken over four months after its former Executive Secretary, Rev. Tor Ujah, was removed from office, the groups urged President Buhari to, as a matter of urgency, appoint a substantive Executive Secretary for the commission to enable it to perform its statutory functions.

In a statement issued by CAN’s Chairman, Board of Trustees, Peter Agbontean and National President of CAMPAN, Patrick Osu, they noted that government’s inability to fill the vacuum was undermining the commission’s statutory functions of organising, coordinating and facilitating air lifting of intending pilgrims to the Holy Land.
