President Muhammadu Buhari President Muhammadu Buhari

The Christian Association of Nigeria President, (CAN) Rev Samson Ayokunle, has
charged president Muhammadu Buhari not to give criminals any breathing space until the battle against terrorism and banditry is won.

Speaking at the 61st Independence Day Anniversary in Abuja, he also called on the states governors to assist in correcting the wrongs in the in various states.

“We are in pains of insecurity, inflation, unemployment, poverty is stirring many people in the face. Kidnappers do not allow us to rest.

“Some religious fanatics want to forcefully convert Nigerians into their own religion. This is the main agenda of the Boko Haram insurgents and the Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP). They have caused and are still causing mayhem in the nation, killing innocent citizens.

“For the past years, bad and selfish leadership have largely contributed to the unfortunate state we are today.

“By their action, they threw the citizens into unnecessary sufferings and pains. Unemployed youths have taken to criminality. Youths are trying frantically to run abroad to search for a better life.”

“The situation, humanly speaking, appears bleak, but knowing that God is not man and with him, all things are possible, this is the right time to believe that there shall be showers of blessings because some people are praying for this country.

“We encourage the law enforcement agents not to give these criminals any breathing space until the battle is won and Nigeria is safe again as before,” he added.
