The northern leadership of the Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to live up to his constitutional responsibility by protecting Nigerians.

 

Sunday Oibe, secretary-general of CAN in the 19 northern states and the FCT, said the association is deeply concerned about the security situation in the country.

 

Speaking on Sunday in Kaduna, he asked Buhari to live up to his constitutional responsibility by protecting citizens and defending the sovereignty of the country.

 

Oibe noted that the country is on the verge of collapse, adding that proactive steps are required to contain the rampaging 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 further asked Buhari and the national assembly to stop living in denial, adding that “nowhere is safe”.

 

He added that measures must be taken to stem the activities of terrorists and other criminal elements across the country.
