The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) leadership in the north has urged President Muhammadu Buhari to uphold his constitutional duty by safeguarding Nigerians.
The 19 northern states and the FCT’s CAN secretary-general, Sunday Oibe, expressed the association’s great worry for the nation’s security situation.
Speaking on Sunday in Kaduna, he urged Buhari to uphold his constitutional duty by maintaining national sovereignty and protecting civilians.
Oibe stated that the nation is in danger of disintegrating and added that preventative measures are needed to hold back the raging terrorists.
“Nigeria is under siege by terrorists who are unleashing mayhem on the citizens and crippling economic and social activities across the country, particularly in states like Kaduna, Katsina, Zamfara, Niger, Benue, Plateau, Taraba, Kebbi, Sokoto and even Abuja, the seat of power,” he said.
“The continuous brazen and commando-like style, with which these terrorists operate unchallenged, even to the extent of issuing a threat to kidnap the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, is worrisome.”
Oibe added that “nowhere is safe” and urged Buhari and the national assembly to cease living in denial.
He continued by saying that steps needed to be made nationwide to stop terrorism and other criminal activity.
