CAN frowns at incessant killing of innocent Nigerians by killer herdsmen

By Our Correspondent

The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) has expressed dismay over the incessant killings of many innocent Nigerians, occasioned by the attacks of Fulani herdsmen and unknown gunmen in various parts of the country. 

 This was contained in a communique of the association after its state executive meeting, yesterday, at Emmanuel Anglican Church, Onitsha Anambra State. 

According to the communique signed by its State Chairman, Ven. Joseph Nweke CAN urge security operatives to step up efforts to tame the tide “to bring to an end to the monumental loss of innocent lives.” 

On the issue of agitations by the Igbos and Yorubas, CAN called on the Federal Government to give a fair hearing to the different agitators for self-determination including Nnamdi Kalu and Sunday Igboho. 

He insisted that dialogue was the best approach towards unity and justice. 

 CAN frowned at the activities of the security agents who it said always mounted roadblocks extorting money with intimidation of the populace.

 He appealed to the Federal Government to look into the situation for a better society. 

 The association also congratulated Very Rev. Fr. Abraham Nwali of the Ebonyi State branch on his emergence as the new South-East Zonal chairman of the CAN. 

 It used the opportunity to praise Governor Willie Obiano “for his great strides in the development of Anambra State especially with the execution of Anambra International Cargo Airport project.” 

 On the forthcoming gubernatorial election in Anambra State, CAN urged political parties and their supporters to conduct their campaigns in a way that would show the world that Anambra State is a Christian State.

 CAN urged youths not to allow themselves to be used as political thugs during the campaigns and called on eligible voters to ensure that they obtained their voters’ cards.  
On the state of the economy, CAN drew the attention of the Federal Government to the economic crunches that had continued to bite hard on Nigerians and called for a lasting solution to reduce the hardship .

CAN finally urged INEC to conduct a credible and fair election to minimize post-election litigations and disagreement.
