The Christian Association of Nigeria (CAN) on Thursday supported the open letter by former President Olusegun Obasanjo to President Muhammadu Buhari, describing it as timely.
CAN said the President should scrutinise the contents of the letter and curb the insecurity in the country which it said informed the letter in the first place. Responding to questions during a news conference in Abuja, CAN President, Rev. Samson Ayokunle, admonished Buhari to treat the letter with all sense of responsibility and accountability.
Citing the security situation in Taraba state, the Christian leader said the his Vice President, Rev. Caleb Ahima, could not travel out of his parish without military protection, noting that the state was under siege.
He dismissed alleged demonisation of the Fulani ethnic group by other Nigerians, noting that the average Fulani man had always lived in peace with other citizens.
