CAN backs Obasanjo's letter to Buhari
The Christian Association of Nigeria has endorsed the open letter written by former President Olusegun Obasanjo to President Muhammadu Buhari , describing it as “ timely”.
The body said Buhari should curb the insecurity in the country.
Responding to questions during a news conference in Abuja on Thursday , CAN President, Rev Supo Ayokunle , urged Buhari to treat the letter “with all sense of responsibility and accountability” .
He said , “ CAN is interested in the letter being treated with all sense of responsibility and accountability as a country because of the issues raised in it . I think the aim of the writer is to call the attention of the nation to things that are capable of setting the nation on fire.
“ We think that every Nigerian has the right to caution the leaders . ”
Citing the security situation in Taraba State, he said his deputy , Rev Caleb Ahima , could not travel out of his parish without military protection , saying the state was under siege .
