Resign Now!–CAN, PFN,Tell Buhari

By Ikenga Chronicles February 3, 2017

 

The Christian Association of Nigeria(CAN) and the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria(PFN) on Thursday mounted pressure on President Muhammadu Buhari to tender his resignation letter for the country to move forward. The South-South chapters of CAN and PFN who made this call at a joint briefing in Warri, Delta State bemoaned the present situation of things in Nigeria since Buhari became president.

This came as Senate President Bukola Saraki and Speaker Yakubu Dogara have been frequent at the villa hobnobbing with acting President Yemi Osibanjo while Buhari is away on medical vacation. The details of their frequent meeting are not yet known as tension continue to rise.

The two Christian bodies said, “The economy is dying. When Jonathan handed over to Buhari, the exchange rate was between N170 to N190 to a dollar. Today, it is N550 to a dollar. Imagine how things had gone bad … if he (Buhari) cannot save the country, let him resign for the country to move to where God wants it to be.”

They frowned that President Buhari has been indifferent to the killings of Christians in Northern Nigeria and said that the situation has got to the point where self-help becomes the compelling option for Christians to protect themselves.

Bishop Simeon Okah, national vice president of PFN (South-South), said during the briefing which took place after a closed door meeting of the groups, that the “number one issue, is this Fulani herdsmen in our bushes. We are no longer going to fold our hands and watch while they kill our people. Some governors are saying they are not from the North. That claim is an insult to us.”

“Today our children are now being deported from America and here we have people from outside our country killing people and raping our daughters, mother and wives. Our farmers no longer have farmlands to farm. I think it’s high time we started defending ourselves if the government cannot help us.”

The clergy further said that the Christian body remains in full support of Apostle Johnson Suleiman, adding that his recent comment was the mind of Christians in Nigeria.
