CAN demands deeper reflection on nation’s woes, confidence in others


Christain Association of Nigeria (CAN) president, Dr. Samson Ayokunle

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has urged Muslims and other Nigerians to use the Ed-el-Kabir celebrations to have a deeper reflection on the challenges facing the country.

CAN President, Rev. Dr. Samson Ayokunle, in a statement yesterday also stressed the need to build confidence by deliberately showing love to one another for peacebuilding.

National Director, Legal and Public Affairs, Kwamkur Samuel Vondip, who issued the statement on behalf of the association, urged government at all levels to consider the responsibility placed on them to govern the people, as a divine calling and be more committed and practical in carrying out their mandate of securing lives and property of Nigerians.

It expressed hope that the challenges confronting the nation would soon be a thing of the past, as Nigerians renew their commitment to God during this trying moment.

He charged government to do everything to rightly curb criminality in the nation through more technologically based surveillance and prompt action against violence in any disguise.

Felicitating with Muslims, Ayokunle urged them and all Nigerians that Nigeria was our only country, hence the need for all of us to be patriotic and support the fight against insurgency, kidnapping and all forms of insecurity and criminality bedeviling Nigeria.

Meanwhile, Chairman of CAN in the 19 Northern states and the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja, Rev. Yakubu Pam has felicitated with Muslims as they join their counterparts in other parts of the country to celebrate this year’s Eid-el-Kabir.

In a statement issued in Jos, Pam described this year’s Sallah, which fell on Sunday in which Christians worship God in their churches as divinely fixed.

He tasked Muslims and Christians in the North and other parts of the country to use the occasion to promote peace with their Christian brothers to end the crisis in parts of Northern states, a situation he lamented, had lasted for several years.
