Despite the Federal Government’s pleas to the world community, the organization expressed sadness that the COVID-19 epidemic had received more attention than Nigeria.
Dr. Samson Ayokunle, the President of CAN, mentioned these things in his New Year’s Message, headed ‘Pray for God’s mercy over Nigeria – CAN.’
“It gladdens my heart to say a resounding Happy New Year 2022 to all Nigerians irrespective of their religious, tribal and political persuasions. Glory be to our God who helped us to escape all dangers and threats of 2021, occasioned by the criminal activities of bandits, terrorists, kidnappers and other unscrupulous elements amidst us.”
“2021 was one year too many as a result of the ways and manners these criminals have been operating with impunity as if this is not the country we have been all these years. It is as if they have taken over the country. They invade communities, markets, churches and schools. They kill, maim, destroy and kidnap without much resistance or hindrance.”
“At this juncture, I call on all Nigerians, irrespective of their religious affiliations, to rise up and cry for the mercy of God that can preserve us and bring an end to all these pains. It appears as if our governments have got to their wit’s end over the menace of insecurity. Their major focus now is on the 2023 general election. Can 2023 election happen if the nation is overrun by criminals?”
