Nigeria at 61: Bad, selfish leadership causing Nigerians unnecessary pain – CAN



The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has said it strongly believes that bad and selfish leadership over the years has caused what Nigerians are suffering for the past 61 years of the country’s independence.


In a message, the CAN President, Rev. Dr Samson Ayokunle, explained that Nigerians are already suffering because they do not fear God, adding that today people are suffering from insecurity and other vices that make life very difficult for the common man.


The CAN President noted, “We are already in the hands of the enemies because of our corrupt and sinful life. We are in pains of insecurity, inflation, unemployment, poverty is stirring many people in the face. Kidnappers and bandits do not allow us to rest.”


He added that for the past years, bad and selfish leadership in the country have largely contributed to the unfortunate state Nigerians are in today, saying that these bad leaders did not plan for the country to grow and if they did, they never made an effort to implement the development plans.


Ayokunle lamented that they embezzled the commonwealth of the nation, by their action they threw the citizens into unnecessary sufferings and pains, pointing out that unemployed youths have taken to criminalities.


He said youths are trying frantically to run abroad to search for better life with some in the process perished in the Mediterranean Sea or ended up being used as sex slaves, lamenting that some got themselves engaged in armed robbery and internet fraud.


He regretted that while the situation humanly speaking appeared bleak, said it is the right time to believe that there shall be showers of blessings because some people are praying for the country.


He believed that the Lord would cause wild beasts, the criminals operating with various names as Boko Haram, bandits, kidnappers, murderous herdsmen, unknown gunmen to cease from the land, saying that violence shall become a thing of the past in Nigeria and all Nigerians shall dwell in safety.


He expressed optimism that the economy would flourish and there shall be prosperity in the nation, stating that Nigerians who had run abroad would return home because Nigeria would be a desired nation by everybody.
