This was made known in a statement issued by CAN President, Samson Ayokunle Olasupo, while speaking to newsmen in Abuja.
The Christian Body advised the Nigerian Government to seek for the help of the international communities as a means of curbing the high rate of insecurity in the country.
The christian body also spoke berated the increasing attack of school children and also the increasing kidnapping of Nigerians while noting that the act of kidnapping had already become a lucrative business in the country and that the government needed to take another set of approach.
“Kidnapping and abduction are now a thriving business in Nigeria and it is almost becoming synonymous with the leadership of President Buhari.
“It is evident that this administration is just paying lip service to the issues of security. Whereas, provision of adequate security for all Nigerians was one of the campaign promises of the president in the 2015/2019 general election and the major reason people voted for him being a former military man. But the administration has failed woefully to keep campaign promise.”
Comparing the Goodluck Jonathan regime to the current President Muhammadu Buhari’s regime in terms of security, the Christian body stated that “today, we are not only being harassed by Boko Haram and Islamic State of West African Province (ISWAP) that recently appointed their own governor for Borno State, we are terribly traumatised by bandits, kidnappers and other criminals.
“Nigeria is no longer a safe haven. It has gradually become a den of kidnappers and other criminals who are operating almost unchecked. It is obvious that the security operatives are overwhelmed.”
CAN further urged the President Muhammadu Buhari’s led administration to take decisive actions on the current issues affecting the progress of the country.
